Awareness walk

Bruce Chapman, an Ozark Shrine Club and Hiram Horde’s Chapter of Missouri Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association member, hugs Christa Harmon on Saturday at the first MAAG walk to draw attention to drug addiction and substance abuse disorder. The Shrine club donated $500 to MAAG which Harmon helped form to bring awareness to drug addiction and as a support group for families with loved ones afflicted by substance abuse. The Widows Sons donated $100. The group gathered for a photo before heading on a 2.1 mile walk. A stop was included at an exhibit of photographs and headstones set up to memorialize those from the area who have died from drug overdoses. MAAG stands for Mid-Missouri Addiction Awareness Group.
