NIOT Billings Members were busy this past weekend. Saturday, we had the booth set up at the 2009 March Against Drugs and Violence event on the Courthouse lawn. The turnout for the event was really good. NIOT Billings donated a children's bike and helmet that was given away during the event. Pastor Melvin Terry was the winner. Several of our members marched with the group around the downtown area and back to the Courthouse lawn where everyone was treated to hotdogs and ice cream. Sunday we set up the booth at Rocky Mountain College for the Festival of Cultures. We had the original Not In Our Town video playing, while over 50 children stopped to paint wooden heart-in-hand cutouts and color paper flags from various countries and states. We had great turnout from our volunteer members at both events. Several people stopped by the booth this weekend to say "thank you" for what NIOT is doing in the community.
