Human trafficking

forum Oct. 8

Speaker Susie Harvill is the CEO/founder of the non-profit organization Advocates For Freedom.

The forum is free to attend but a love offering will be received to help cover the expenses the group incurs in coming and to help further its cause. Because of the sensitivity and graphic nature of this subject, this is an adults-only forum.

The public, parents/grandparents, law enforcement, emergency personnel, and school and city officials are invited to attend. For more information, contact Betty Jeffcoats at 312-8724.

Everyone wins in the pageant and no one walks away empty-handed — beautiful crowns and custom-monogrammed sashes.

Good-luck tickets are available to offset the entry fee, plus selling them gives friends/family the opportunity to win door prizes that will be drawn throughout the day.
