KITCHENS RECEIVE HIGH MARKS
Three out of three isn’t bad at all. Holston Conference Camp and Retreat Ministries are celebrating the news that all three of the camp kitchens received 100 scores from their local health departments.
“Our camp kitchens usually get high scores but I don’t recall when they’ve all received 100,” said the Rev. Randy Pasqua, executive director. “It’s a sign that everybody’s working hard.”
Pasqua sends congratulations to the food service managers: Danette Brown at Camp Lookout in Rising Fawn, Ga.; Diana Raggett at Camp Wesley Woods in Townsend, Tenn.; and Becky Jones at Camp Dickenson in Fries, Va.
Three weeks are left in the summer camp season and openings still exist, Pasqua said. Register at HolstonCamping.com.
SAY GOODBYE TO BUFFALO MOUNTAIN

NEW KINGSPORT CAMP
Work on the new camp at Bays Mountain has begun with the hiring of an architect/designer and the pending hire of a capital funding campaign firm.
Holston members are also invited to help name the new camp. Between now and July 26, send your suggestions to Wadley at firstname.lastname@example.org or share with him during the reception on July 26.
