Drumming Camp Notes
It can best be summed up by Kim’s statement!
What a week, huh?! The sweetest kids ever and beautiful weather made this week’s camp one to remember, and to top it off we had an amazing team of leaders and volunteers. I’m still singing the drumming tunes in my head (boom, boom, bucket, boom boom!) and reveling in the joy of Saturday’s great turnout of families and parishioners.
What a wonderful program from the magic in the kitchen with Sarah Ruth to the clean up crew and volunteers.
Thanks to everyone at St. Stephen’s who helped make it a great success. The children had a wonderful experience learning to drum, making creative art projects, and eating scrumptious food. Also a big thank you to Ya Ya for his outstanding job of culminating the children’s week long efforts with a grand finale!
Our deepest thanks. – Fran, Gary and Susan.
