Downrange PAX

Swish at the Baha’i House of Worship in Chicago for a Baha’i conference.

Said this prayer for our F3 group and their families here at the Baha’i House of Worship near Chicago. Thinking of you on this anniversary:

O God! Grant Thy favor, and bestow Thy blessing. Vouchsafe Thy grace, and give a portion of Thy bounty. Enable these men to witness during this year the fulfillment of their hopes. Send down Thy heavenly rain, and provide Thy plenteousness and abundance. Thou art the Powerful, the Mighty.

🚨 Beatdown Safety Reminders 🚨

Disclaimer – Is the disclaimer given before every F3 workout by the workout leader or site Q?
Cell Phone on your Body? Does at least one Pax have a cell phone with them during the workout?
CPR Certified? Does at least one Pax know CPR at each AO and preferably at each workout?
Site-Specific Safety? What else is/has your Region and AOs doing/done to ensure safety is prioritized and plans are in place?

Trenton Area Soup Kitchen Charity Event

A special charity activity benefitting the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen was an important part of the 5 year anniversary activities. We were able to assemble 100 toiletry bags for those in need in the Trenton Area. These will immediately be distributed to the community. Let’s continue building on this and continue the positive impact on our local community.
