Roanoke Virginia - emphasis is on "Better Health for All"
July 5, 2012
Roanoke, Virginia is a beautiful, historic city in a Commonwealth state, but is currently experiencing issues here due to power outages throughout the city.
Informants say that the power outage issues started last week on Thurdsay.
The local Civid Center, thanks to the American Red Cross, is providing fold up cot beds, blankets, meals, and a safe place for victims of this local tragedy.
Workers have people who are staying at The Civid Center who were affected sign in and sign out. The temporary housing is in a large 'gymnasium' room and The American Red Cross also provides meals. The Civic Center housing is expected to last about two more days. Crews are busy at this time trying to restore the power.

Also enjoyed in Roanoke this Flurth of July holiday a church picnic offered by a local Baptist Mission. We got to meet many of the locals who were involved in these events and who were friendly, and enjoyed good homestyle food including potato salad, grilled hot dogs and hamburgers and homemade coleslaw among other items served there.
The Fourth of July day ended by having fireworks shot off in the sky all around where I was last night, in five different locations.
