A Long-Time Promise is about to be Kept!

cl_construction_250“Where are the restrooms?” has been the oft-asked question of guests in Cedar Lodge, and the answer has been as long and complicated as the walk to get there! For more than 30 years, there has been talk about moving the restrooms to the main floor, but, for a variety of reasons, it was never possible. At long last, work has begun on this project, and that long walk downstairs to the restrooms is about to come to an end!

Funded through gifts received from the Embracing the Vision campaign, the work, projected to cost just over $1,000,000, includes replacing the roofing on the A-frame center section of Cedar Lodge, relocating the water and electrical connections to the building, upgrading building infrastructure to meet current building codes, along with the construction of the new restrooms that you will see, and, under them at the basement level, storage rooms that you probably won’t get to see. The new restrooms are expected to open in March 2012.

If you find yourself on the grounds during the construction process, we ask for your patience. As with most improvements, there is a period where, before it gets better, it becomes more of a challenge. We are doing our best to make things as convenient as possible for our guests during this time.

We sincerely thank each of you who have helped fund this work. You have helped us keep a promise! Soon, when the question is asked, “where are the restrooms?” we can say, “right over there!”

Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
