Ben and Jerry's, Hogs for Heifers, and other NYAC updates

Ben and Jerry say hurry up and register!

Remember that to get a coupon for a FREE pint of Ben and Jerry’s, you have to register in the next two days! After Jan. 31, you’ll have to buy your own Chunky Monkey and Chubby Hubby.

Hogs for Heifers

No silly, not bacon - motorcycles! A group of young adults from the Church of the Brethren are organizing a charity motorcycle ride to sponsor Heifer Project. On June 4, 2004, the group will be leaving from Annville P.A. and riding the near 2500 miles to NYAC at Snow Mountain Ranch, near Winter Park Colorado. The ride will go through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Colorado. To keep costs down, riders will stay at various churches and homes along the way. There is no initial cost for the ride, but riders will be responsible for food and gasoline cost as well as providing their own transportation. In order to raise money for Heifer Project, riders will ask individuals to sponsor them. The hope is to raise a thousand dollars. If you are a young adult on the fringe, what better way to experience the beauty of God's creation than to ride through it, rain and sun, for a week and a half? All are welcome and any bike is welcome.

For information on registering for the ride or how to become a sponsor, please contact Paul Liepelt at (765-977-4513) or via email at

Number of days until NYAC fills to capacity = ???
