The Cedar Rapids Thursday Noon Optimist have been long time supporters of the Camp Courageous. I fondly remember splitting wood by hand with Gary Kouba (front left…former WMT staffer) and the rest of the club, back in about 1980. Much of their club members help at the camp’s open houses and other events. Super group!
Thank you to our friends at the 1st Ave. Wells Fargo Bank in Cedar Rapids for donating their 2013 Horse, “Shamrock” to camp. For years Tom & Barb Eggleston would stop by for this donation for the Pineapple Gala…now they are both gone…but their legacy lives on. Thank you Wells Fargo!
Thank you to Al & Jan Wicks and the Iowa City Old Capitol Kiwanis for donating cases of plasticware, along with a monetary donation. This is the group where years ago we met Eldon Stutsman and Ted Rettinmeyer….two super Camp Courageous supporters, both gone now….but their legacies live on.
Thank you to Cecil Hoon and the Davenport Breakfast Lions Club for inviting Camp Courageous to give them a program. We appreciate their continued support!
Continuing the tradition, the Regis 8th grade Girl’s Basketball team came out to Camp to help peel apples again this year. The team has been helping for several years. They always get a lot accomplished and they are a great help to camp.
