Members of Victory had the Operation Christmas Child (OCC) float in the Mendota Sweet Corn Festival parade. The float won the 2017 Sweet Corn Festival Queen’s choice award! OCC is a program designed to send a shoe box filled with gifts, essentials (toiletries, school supplies, etc.), and the Gospel of Jesus Christ to kids in a poverty stricken country for Christmas. More information is available on their website at

OCC members are Rick & Cinde Schafer, Cathy Slater, Hailey Bryan, Hanna Miller, and Justin Miller.
