Nancy Tanner Johnson and Beverly Nagel will be at Hartley Public Library at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, February 24, to share their experiences on their trip to California to participate as volunteers on the Rose Bowl Parade float and to L.A.’s skid row, which holds the largest population of homeless people in the United States. Nancy, Beverly, and Bev’s husband, Doug, were part of a mission trip from Northwest Iowa to help complete the Lutheran Hour float that would appear in the Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena. The three were heavily engaged with other volunteers in cutting flowers including thousands of long-stemmed roses, and in helping place the flowers in vials and later on the float. They attended the parade on January 1 and were able to view their float with other floats, bands, and equestrian units. On Tuesday, January 2, Beverly and Doug visited Skid Row with others and helped distribute over 1,000 hygiene kits at a mission in downtown Los Angeles. Mark you calendars now for this interesting presentation at the library on February 24.
