Esther and I just returned home from a weekend camping at Camp Christopher. The weather was beautiful, the birds were singing, the river flowing, the red-tailed hawk screeching above, the chipmunks chattering a conversation with us and all was well with the world. We have a few updates to share with our Camp Chris Community:
*We now have electricity for all to use! Thanks to all those who generously gave to support us in this effort.
*The driveway got torn up a bit by the electric installation. I have someone coming to look at the driveway and Hawthorne Lane and if we can afford it we will try and get that upgraded.
*The riding lawn mower is out of commission for now. It is being picked up tomorrow and will hopefully be fixed soon.
*The screened gazebo is wonderful!
*We are going to need more firewood before the summer ends. If you were one of the folks who offered firewood please contact me so we can set something up.
*There is a portable fire pit that can used wherever on the campgrounds. This is a separate one from the permanent pit by the deck. Please tip up or upside down when not in use as it captures all the rain.
*The stuff in the shed is for anyone and everyone to use. The chairs, matches, lighters, etc. Help yourself but please return to the shed for our next guests.
*If anyone wants an old Yardman riding mower that is missing a hood, has flat tires and no oil or gas - it is in the old metal shed and is yours for the taking. The neighbor tells me this is the mower the previous owner used most of the time last year.
*Please leave a note in the journal in the shed and share your story on the webpage under the Updates tab. Click on the Create New Post button.
We continue to feel blessed by this community and are thankful for each of you.
