On Behalf of the CSCA Gondar Council I would like to say thank you to all those who turned out for our Annual Walk for Water 5K!

It was a great day for a walk on the Midge Cramer Path at the Benton County Fairgrounds. The day started out cloudy, which was great for walking and running, and then transitioned to a nice sunny day for our market place gathering afterwards.

We ate delicious Ethiopian food, kids played while grown ups visited, and engaging educational displays provided information on various projects and issues facing the region while Ethiopian music played in the background.

Much gratitude to the many people and groups who made this a fun and successful event!
