August 30, 2022 - 5th Tuesday field trip
Merdie arranged for us to take a field trip to Camp Korey south of Mt. Vernon where the Camp Brotherhood used to be. It is now a camp designed for medically challenged children to attend with specific medical support. Many members have made twin sized quilts and donated to the camp to be given to each camper to take home with them. They are also requesting pillow cases as well. Sue P. has challenged each member to make at least one pillow case by January business meeting. The following slide show are a few pictures of the camp and lunch at Calico Cupboard in Mt.Vernon. Many took a trip to Calico Creations for a shopping trip!
