Columbia Art Exhibit and Website Features Neighbor Ride
Slayton House and celebratingcolumbia.com are currently exhibiting a series of portraits to commemorate Columbia's 50th Anniversary. The exhibit is about "gratitude to Rouse and to those who made [his] vision a reality and to those who continue to keep the vision alive," says artist Mary Jo Messenger. We are excited that Neighbor Ride, current driver Clinton Edwards and our founding President Judy Pittman are featured prominently!
The exhibit runs through August 12 at Slayton House 10400 Cross Fox Lane, Columbia.
We raised $487.57 from the Tino's Restaurant night! Thanks to all of you who participated.

Neighbor Ride is so sad to announce the passing of Volunteer DriverDave Carter. He was a high volume driver since he started in January of 2014. He will be missed by us and the many passengers that he transported. He is survived by his wife Mary.
"I am very pleased with your program! Your representatives are extremely kind and professional."
"This was our first ride. The driver was pleasant, engaging and knowledgable about directions and a competent driver. We were glad to meet her."
