Faithful volunteers keep grounds looking great
Have you looked at your yard recently? Did you notice spring is here? Most of us have started up the lawn mower more than once this season, and if you haven’t tended to those flower beds, the weeds have already grown to monstrous proportions. Now, imagine over 200 acres of lawns, flower beds, berm after berm, and forests woven through with miles of trails and you have the scope of grounds keeping work to be done at Warm Beach Camp.
Warm Beach Camp’s need for grounds keeping help is overwhelming. With less staff available to make sure the grounds look great, volunteers are stepping in and taking on this enormous task.
Three faithful women, Camille McDugald, Jean Bach, and Vera Sagan, are volunteers who come weekly to assist Warm Beach Camp in this way. Both Camille and Jean have been volunteering since the spring of 2013, and Vera joined the team a month ago. Together, they have already conquered areas around the Mt. Baker cabins, the Program Center, Cascadian Lodge, Cedar Lodge, and they are now tackling the Maple Center grounds.
All the ladies agree that the best part about gardening is getting to be out in nature and interacting with the guests as they roam by. They also enjoy the things that gardening teaches them about the nature of God.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who help keep Warm Beach Camp looking amazing. We still need consistent grounds keeping helpers. If you are interested in helping, complete online volunteer inquiry form, or call Jessica Wilson, Volunteer Coordinator, at 360-312-3417.
