I hope you have some fun in the sun and outdoors planned. I certainly do! I think it will be a great summer.
We are moving forward on the work at Camp Sid Edmonds. The funds from the timber sale will address the budget shortfall from a lower than anticipated cookie sale. It is a combination of the sale of the larger timber on the outer part of the camp and a thinning for the interior of the camp. This should create more trails through the woods for people and animals.
We are working to finish the sail loft at Kamp Kiwanis. The winter was cruel with water line breaks at every camp property at some point, so the forward movement was curtailed with maintenance issues. We had someone in the northern part of the state contact us to give us yet another large sailboat. We are fortunate to have such generous individuals. At this point, I'm considering bringing at least one of the larger sailboats down to the Mobile area so the mariners can hone their sailing skills on the bay.
We have had Kohls and Target staff work on our properties to clean them up for us. With 36 buildings and 36 bathhouses, the wind and weather take their toll. We also have alumnae who are scheduled to assist us in getting Kamp Kiwanis ready for resident camp, which is also a gift.
Hopefully, time with your girls and family are a central part of your summer plans.
