“There are lot of children who live in single parent homes and these give-aways are a real blessing for them,” Rouse said. “We will also have care boxes for the elderly, the homeless and single parents.

“The National Guard will hand out slices of pizza, hotdogs and slices of watermelon and, for the kids, there will be bouncy houses. Also, young boys will be able to get their hair cut on site for free and there will be a time of free play for the kids.”

The day’s events will also include a baking contest and some of the area’s best cooks will vie for top honors with their cakes, cookies and pies.

“We encourage the community to come out Saturday and let’s all ‘Each One Reach On’ and, in so doing, make our community and our world a better place for all of us,” Rouse said.

Dr. S.D. James is the leader of the annual “Each One Reach One” celebration and his leadership and support are greatly appreciated throughout the Pike County community and far beyond, Rouse said.

“Dr. James’ influence has been making a difference in the lives of countless people for more than 30 years. We want to recognize him on Saturday for all he does to make the world a better place.”
