There will be a dedication for a sign honoring Dick Burdette, the author of several books on the team, Carpenter said.

Burdette, who died last year, left print copies of his work to the ministry.

The event will take place, rain or shine, and Carpenter said there will be shelters available if it rains.

“It will be a fun family day, for food and fellowship and we want to spread God’s love,” she said.
