The 2018 Rally

Jesse Lee’s Appalachia Service Project is up and running for 2018! Things will officially kick off on February 21 and 27–the nights of the 2018 Rally!

The Rally meetings are held in Jesse Lee’s Martin Hall, on the lower level of the main church building, from 6:30-9:00 PM. You can come either night. It is an opportunity to hear about the work we do and everything that goes into preparing us for doing it. All of our veterans are there, too, to share their ASPeriences and get us all ASPumped for this year’s trip.

There is a $15 discount when you pay your registration fee at the Rally. Regularly $265, it will be $250 through February 27. The Rally is also your first chance to sign up for car wash and skills training dates. Payment and completed forms (available at JesseLeeASP.org) need to be turned in before you can sign up.

But if you just want to come to the Rally to check things out, that’s OK, too. You can always bring your payment and forms to the first Orientation on March 21 or 27.

New Date for Orientation 3

There is a new date for Orientation 3: Wednesday, June 6, 2018.

Originally scheduled for June 5, Orientation 3 fell on the same date as the RHS Senior Banquet. Orientation 3 is only held on one night, and it is very important because you learn who is on your crew and what county you’ll be serving in. Because Jesse Lee ASP draws the best students that Ridgefield has to offer, we know several of our participants will be receiving awards that night. So, now Orientation 3 will be held on Wednesday, June 6, instead.

ASP 35 for 35

In honor of our 35 continuous years of building relationships and making homes warmer safer and drier through the Appalachia Service Project, Jesse Lee announces, ASP 35 for 35.

We are hoping that our past participants and other supporters would make a gift of $35 (or more) toward this outreach.  Our goal is to have 1000 donors and to raise $35,000, enough to build two new homes for underprivileged families, or whatever the ASP leaders deem the greatest need.

Please use this link to make your gift.  If we exceed our $35,000 goal, the additional funds will support broader youth mission projects.  Thanks for your generosity and support in building principled youth who love, care and serve.
