Big Projects Around Camp

We have been really busy around here! Now that camp is done, we are getting back into the working groove. However, before I go any further, there is exciting information for you...we have two more people moving in to Camp Daniel for a one year internship! So say, "Hello" to Steve Rickerson from Chicago, IL..

...And Nick Sterry from Crivitz, WI!

Because they are moving in soon, Tony has been creating policies for the new internship program. Along with that Tony and the guys have been working on the addition of the garage. They have put siding on it...

...reconfigured the ground around it to look nicer and drain water more efficiently...
...put a fence up for the recycling area...

...and put in gravel in and around the area.
Wow! But wait, there's more! It still has to be stained! Jen started working on that.

What a big project, and it's moving along fast! Speaking of big projects, before camp started, the muffler on Tony's golf cart broke off of the engine. As a temporary fix, Tony took a small piece of metal piping and connected it from the exhaust to the engine with metal tape. It lasted for a while, but during camp, it broke off again. Marceaux has recently been working on it. He has ordered new parts so it works for a long time! Here is the new muffler next to the old one...
...What a difference!

Justin has been gone for a couple of weeks. When he got back, Papa Tony's new Mac mini computer was waiting to be set up. Papa Tony used to use a Windows computer, so Justin had to order new accounting software and convert all of his files to work on a Mac. It is finally done!

The Camp Daniel Appreciation Picnic is almost here (September 14th)! A lot of work needs to be done to the grounds before then. Tony and the guys planted forty more trees; Trish has been mowing, fertilizing, and weeding; and Jen and Molly have been weeding.

The Able Attack Special Olympics team will begin their Family Nights (practice, pizza, and bible study) again on September 10th. To kick things off, we will be having our annual picnic after practices. Jen has been very busy getting things ready to start the season.
