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.

The campground board would like to thank everyone who helped move kitchen equipment today. Jack's Fine Foods of Brazil donated a commercial refrigerator and convection oven to the campground. Convection ovens are very heavy and it took many hands to get it safely moved to the dining hall. Thanks again to each of you, may God Bless each of you. We also finished up cleaning the range hood and also got it moved into the dining hall. The next project is to get it installed.

Exhaust hood has arrived

After an afternoon of work, the exhaust hood that the campground purchased was lowered from the ceiling of the former Brazil Legion, moved outside without a great deal of trouble and a lot of brut force, loaded into a trailer and moved to the campground where it awaits a lot of degreaser and power washing. Once it is cleaned, we will then start the process of getting it installed. We also moved a small comercial refrigerator that we purchased which will allow us to only have to use our large one when we have very large groups. Thanks to all who helped, God Bless each of you.
