We’ll leave the light on for ya!

Volunteers Graves 260Every organization has to budget for “keeping the lights on.” At Warm Beach Camp that cost just got a whole lot cheaper thanks to a grant from our electrical service provider, Snohomish Co. PUD, and some really hard working volunteers.

Several months ago, WBC received a grant from the PUD that paid for 85% of a $15,000 lighting upgrade project that will drastically improve the efficiency of the lighting in Cedar Lodge. After the ballasts and bulbs have been replaced, the Camp will save over $3,000 a year in energy costs.

Not only this, but all the lights are being replaced by three wonderful volunteers, Bob, Evie, and Rob Graves. Bob and Evie are members of an RVing volunteer organization called Hardhats for Christ. They have pulled their rig onto the grounds of WBC for the next several weeks to take on this huge project for the Camp.

Bob is a retired electrician who worked for 49 years in the trade. Rob, their son, who has joined them for the project, also works as an electrician. Together, the family agrees that they like to do volunteer work because they “love the Lord” and see their work as “a tithe of time and ability.”

Warm Beach Camp would like to thank the Graves family for their time and effort on this project. The outcomes will be long lasting. We praise the Lord daily for volunteers like you.

A Heartwarming and Joyous Plan!

When a woman from a senior community quilter’s group came to Warm Beach Camp, she was not expecting to have a bond with a group of students attending a high school retreat. However, where God is at work, connections can be found in the unlikeliest of places. At mealtimes, the woman and her quilter friends would go to the dining room and share the space with a group of teenagers and their teachers. Through conversation over a delicious meal, it ...
