If it is raining, you can pick up two posters- one to put on your inside front windshield and one on the back and you can park your cars along Whitewood and Armstrong. We will pray in silence for an hour. After that you can return your posters. Jim will try to park our van closer to the bank corner so you do not have so far to walk back with the posters.
