Thank you for your support!

Thanks to all who supported our Fish Fry fundraiser.  Here are some pictures from our trip to Maine last summer.  This summer, we will backpack in western Virginia, and in 2018 we will ride horseback in rural New Mexico.  Funds from the Fish Fry support those big trips and year-round camping, leadership and character development.
