Mt Wood just received a little routine maintenance. Just like with large buildings, structures such as Mt Wood need some tender loving care to keep them in good shape. Camp contracted a Painting & Tree Trimming company to stain and seal the climbing wall.

I first discovered “Minglets” at camp. Someone opened a new jug of milk and used the plastic ring to make a heart-shaped gift. I always enjoyed receiving them as well as passing them along to someone else. It was common to see them strung onto necklaces, bracelets, and shoestrings. It was a great way to simply let someone know that they were special. Some of the milk jug designs have changed so that you must break the ring to remove the cap but there are milk companies out there still using the rings pictured above.
Save the rings when you find them until you see someone that needs a little encouragement. You can then create a “Minglet” and spread a little joy.
Please add a comment to this post if you have a “Minglet” story.

Many Thanks to all of the volunteers that participated in the Oct. 23rd Partner’s Service Day.
Old Black Hole tube converted and submerged as fish habitat!
One crew worked on converting an old section of the “Black Hole” into fish habitat. It sort of looked like a dinosaur’s rib cage before being weighted down and placed under water.
Transplanting and Mulching Trees
Another crew transplanted about a dozen trees and weeded around and mulched about 50 trees that were planted at a previous Partner’s Service Day.
Most of the volunteers ended up at the wood splitting shed. Camp uses a lot of firewood and the crew pitched in to help split and restock our supply.
It was a great day! We hope to see you in the spring for the next Partner’s Service Day!
