PET Memphis coordinated a PET Build as one of the three available Outreach Experiences during the National gathering of the United Methodist Men (UMM) in Nashville, TN. Many UMM signed up filling all the available build slots in advance. After seeing the PET International display in the Mission Hall, additional men also joined to create an overflow crowd at the PET Build
Attendees put together 20 PETs on-site, tested them, disassembled them, and finally packed them ready to be shipped to the Dominican Republic in September. Other PET supporters were on-site to help with the various build stations, including PET MO-Columbia, PET MO-Southwest, PET International, and even parts makers for PET Memphis traveled in from Arkansas (Charles and Lisa Anderson).
