Tell us about your summer mission trip

June 21, 2014 

Summers aren’t all about traveling for leisure. Many Central Kentucky faith groups organize mission trips during which members volunteer their time and service to medical clinics, shut-ins, underprivileged children and more.

If your group is taking a mission trip, we’d like you to share a photo with us and the Herald-Leader’s readers.

Send us one photo — only one photo, please — and tell us where you went, when you were there and what group you represented. Also, feel free to tell us about the trip in no more than 100 words.

Please identify everyone in the photo from left to right. (It’s better, obviously, not to send a huge group photo but rather a picture of a small group of people doing volunteer work.)

You must include your name, address and a daytime phone number.

Send the photo in an attachment in an email to sscherer1@   (it should be in JPEG format, at least 3 MB in size and the full image file). Please write mission trip in the subject line. The deadline for submission is Aug. 15, and photos will be published in late August or early September.

Lexington Herald-Leader is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
