Kids for Saving Earth Eco Day-camp ran August 16 -20 this summer and served 30 plus kids! We had a great time. We drummed with Bob & Maggie Timms , did crafts with Petra Hart and Mary Loepky, and enjoyed field trips with John Dove, Charlie Boulet, Diana Vaughn, and Peter Sitzler. We learned about the “web of life”, and wild food, and how to compost, and how wonderful it is to grow your own food! There are too many people to thank here, but please know that our gratitude runs deep and you are all so dearly loved and appreciated. Please check out our website at www.texadakse.com or the church website (address below) to see pictures!!
