MORE BRADY SHOEMAKER BASEBALL CAMP NEWS





MORE BRADY SHOEMAKER BASEBALL CAMP NEWS




The weather was beautiful; an answer to prayer!
We were excited and so were the kids!  All 150 of them!


Check-in was the first item on the agenda,
followed by getting acquainted with their assigned teams,
 and then a devotion and opening prayer given by Pastor Jeff Bridgewater. 
Then it was time to hit the field!  Each team went to an assigned station where they were instructed on such things at batting, catching, and fielding.
Each station was manned by volunteers with a desire to see children excel in their favorite sport of baseball.
And of course the most popular station was the one that Brady manned!
While all the kids were learning and having a good time, volunteers were busy serving popcorn to tide everyone over.
Many parents and grandparents stayed to watch the fun...
and then there were some who were too little to participate, but wanted to be a part of it all...
Now, just how cute is this?
And this?
It looks like he could be saying, "Hey, what are you doing?  Keep your eye on the ball!"

Everyone was on Brady's team Saturday and we all know that every team needs a mascot.  Swirly, the little beagle, was dressed for her important role.

Knowing that the kids would be very hungry when they got finished, volunteers were hard at work preparing lunch.
Father Hollowell gave the blessing for the meal.
And then it was time to eat!
An autograph session followed the meal.
Awards and prizes were given...
There were a lot of smiling faces...
And we were in agreement that a wonderful time was had by all!

Thank you to all the volunteers and donors who helped to make this event a success!

Thank you to Brady Shoemaker and his family for all their hard work and their dedication to the youth in our community.  And their efforts to bring awareness to the FBC Youth Camp are greatly appreciated!

Most of all, thank you to our Heavenly Father for His bountiful blessings.

Brady Shoemaker Baseball Camp a great success!!

The Brady Shoemaker Baseball Camp held on August 17 at the campground was a overwelming sucess! Approximately 150 boys and girls 7-14 turned out to learn more about the great game of baseball. Brady and all his volunteers were great with the kids as they rotated from station learning more about hitting, fielding and other aspects of the game. The weather was great as parents and grandparents enjoyed watching their youngsters having fun. A great big thank you goes out to all the folks who organized the event, those who donated supplies, and to those who gave of their time to volunteer. Not only does the campground thank you, but all those kids thank you also. God Bless each of you!!
