The business card drawing winner for June is Chris Jeralds from Marion. Congratulations Chris!
It's always such a blessing to experience an engagement happening at Bald Knob Cross -- that special day when two people decide they want to "do life together," and the decision begins on top of Bald Knob Mountain. 

We have had several engagements in the past few weeks, and it is indeed a special time. Please join me in saying a special prayer for all those couples who shared that moment at the cross, as they make plans to begin their lives together.

Did You Know?
If you're familiar with the "pig story," (if not, you can find the story here) and you have a family member who raised a pig for that fund raiser, did you know the plague with your family member's name on it is available for you to pick up? Unless another family member has already claimed it, those original plaques are being kept at the Welcome Center, and because a new data base has been created for those people and the old plaques are no longer usable, we are giving them to family members. 

Simply come to the Welcome Center, tell the volunteer on duty your relationship to the person who raised the pig, along with his or her name, and the volunteer will help you locate it. You will be asked to sign out the plaque you are taking, along with the date. 

This is just another way to honor all those from so many surrounding communities that helped make Bald Knob Cross a reality.
