CROP Walk 2021
With a history of over 70 years, the CROP will take place again in 2021! Missed in 2020 because of the Covid pandemic, the Hanover Area Council of Churches had been alerted that St. Paul Dubs will kindly take responsibility for being the central position of the CROP Walk at Codorus.
Replacing Diana Weaver after her many years of service as the CROP chairman from St. Mark, Linda Bolin will be waiting for our walkers to sign up and receive their $$ folders. Please do one of two things: Be one of those walkers and/or contribute to one of those walkers.
The CROP Walk takes place on Sunday at 1:00pm, October 17. Sign up and walk your distance, your pace, and your smile. And, we’ll all say “thanks” for participating. Some of the money will stay in Hanover—the rest will be disbursed nationally and internationally by Church World Service.
St. Mark members who receive their information by mail or e-mail and would like to participate may do so by sending checks to St. Mark made payable to “CHURCH WORLD SERVICE.” Please do not make your CROP Walk checks to St. Mark this year!
