Huggins speaks to Rotary Club

Subscriber onlyPhoto submitted Beth Huggins spoke to the Siloam Springs Rotary Club on July 19 about her recent 10-month humanitarian deployment to a remote earthquake-shattered region of Nepal. Situated with China to the north, and India to the south, this republic was devastated in 2015 by an earthquake that killed 8,000 and injured 21,000 others. Working with a non-profit group called Conscious Impact, Huggins and a host of others set out to implement a program to rebuild both residential and institutional structures using the resources that were primarily available on site. The principal structural component was brick that was fashioned on site that resulted in an environmentally friendly, yet stable platform for these structures. Huggins will be heading back to continue this effort and will be hosting a meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 9 in the Dye Conference Room at John Brown University, to speak about the project and enlist the assistance of those who wish to contribute to this cause. More information can viewed at www.consciousimpact.org. The Siloam Springs Rotary Club meets at 11:30 a.m. each Tuesday in the Dye Conference Room at JBU. Continue reading...

'God's work at its very best'

n Another great summer is ongoing at Camp Siloam.

Subscriber onlyTeenagers are pounding on the door to get in. It's hot outside and they are filled with teen spirit. The doors are locked until the precise moment has arrived.
