OWLS - Senior Camper Day, August 1st
On August 1st, 9 OWLS traveled to Lutherdale Camp to participate in a
Senior Camper Day.
The weather was great for a day at camp. The morning began with a
Bible study led by the Rev. Dick Inglett. Dick teaches a Diakonia Class
which helps develop church leadership. The Bible study was great.
Everyone was then treated to a wonderful lunch.
The group was then loaded on two pontoons for tour of Lauderdale
Lakes. There are actually 3 lakes, Green Lake, Middle Lake and Mill
Lake also known as Don something. These lakes are spring fed with
one outlet. Jeff Bluhm camp director gave a history of the lakes,
shorelines and residents along the lake. Lutherdale has the second
largest shoreline on the lakes.
All were then loaded on a wagon using church pews as seats for a tour
of the entire Lutherdale grounds. Besides the camp buildings we saw
the new sports fields, the large garden, the farm with many animals,
and the many areas for youth programs and games. All enjoyed the
Pizza Picnic and Luther’s Reformation DVD
This year’s picnic found 22 OWLS enjoying a Pizza Party in the church fellowship hall.
Sausage, pepperoni, and the kitchen sink were the choices of the day. A large salad followed
by brownies and ice cream topped off the summer picnic.
After the brief meeting, the DVD, Martin Luther and the Reformation, was shown. All
commented it was very interesting.
