Special Event at MOA to Benefit Global Orphan Relief

MOA is sponsoring two team members, Jessica Blanford and Michael Monthan, to travel to Uganda, Africa in March to help build a fresh water well and a kitchen for the Salem Children’s Center Orphanage. Jessica and Michael organized, with invaluable help from Sandra Romero, a silent auction to raise money for the purchase of building materials. The event raised over $6,000 for the effort. Thank you to our families and friends who helped make this event a great success!

Bowling for MOA Respect

In a not-so-heated contest between eight teams – Michael Monthan, Greg Martin, and Mark Williams of team “Big Lebowski” (who obviously took things way too seriously) taped their fingers, donned their purple colors, their fashionable shoes, their matching socks, their wrist supports, their grip plus gloves, their custom bowling balls, their PBA licensed beer mugs and proceeded to dominate the competition. Really, it wasn’t even close.http://www.moaarch.com/moawp/wp-admin/post-new.php
