What a great day for this volunteer weekend. We raised 30 tents by 4 pm. That could be a record… Led by 10 Lansing Family Campers we had 36 people join us for the weekend from the Pentwater Service Club , Jackson Family Camp, and several others. Tomorrow we will put in a few more hours before everyone departs.

If you were not able to make it this time we will have another October 1 weekend. Enjoy a few pics from today.
