Don Nead & Team will present a series on the various issues that come with the end of life – legal, medical, nitty-gritty issues and will offer suggestion and information about how to deal with them as well as how to discuss them with family and friends.
The more decisions we make about end of life issues, the easier it is for our survivors.
And folks, we are all going to do it, it is just a question of WHEN!

Campers will arrive at their leisure on Friday. Saturday there will be hiking and other activities, as desired. We have reserved a shelter for all-day Saturday, where people can congregate and visit. In the evening we will once again have a potluck communal dinner to which any and everyone is invited to come down for and join us; this is always one of the highlights of the camp out weekend!
There are also still rooms available at the Turkey Run Inn. So, even if you are not a camper, consider joining us for an enjoyable weekend of fun and fellowship. (These rooms fill up fast, though, so consider making reservations now!)
If you are interested in camping, please contact Laura Ward or you may call 765-420-7219 to make arrangements, or with any questions.
