I am highly interested in the Brother James Miller Pilgrimage in May. However, I will
need a ride from someone in the Tomah or
Necedah, WI area to get to Steven’s Point.
My email address is: br.jeremy10@yahoo.com
and (608) 565-2417, phone, and W5631 County
Rd. G, Necedah, WI 54646. Perhaps someone
from LaCrosse or elsewhere may be passing this area and headed for Steven’s Point?

May 17, Friday
Necedah is about an hour plus drive southwest
of Steven’s Point. If someone is passing through
the area for the Wednesday, May 29, Pilgrimage,
please contact me, as I still need to find a ride.

Ride still needed from Necedah, about
one & a half hour drive to Steven’s
Point, for the May 29 Pilgrimage
honoring Brother James Miller.
