Theresa Hansen (L) and Sindy McDonnell (R) traveled to camp with a car load of assorted clothing, household items, food and kitchen supplies, and paper. Residing in De Witt, It was wonderful to meet these ladies. Camp is truly appreciative of their generosity
Thank you to Dennis Shaffer for making the call, and long time supporters of Camp Courageous, the Alburnett Lions Club, for inviting camp to present a program to their group. A group that together, and individually have provided a great fountain of support to the camp. (Far left)…always a treat to see George and Charlotte Machacek…in their 90s…they never miss a breakfast. President of their Lions (standing center) is Gene Neighbor…long time friend of the camp.
Thank you to the Alburnett United Methodist Church for this donation from their Easter Offering. These wonderful ladies were preparing a delicious meal for the Alburnette Lions, when they presented this check.
Over 25-years ago Leigh Clark came to us, willing to give Camp Courageous his secret fruitcake recipe if Camp would take it on as a fund raiser. Personally, I thought he was kidding as I bit my cheeks so I won’t laugh. Well, he wasn’t kidding and the next thing you know we were in the fruitcake business. We needed massive amounts of ingredients…so the first place we went was Davenports Sam’s Club, which had just opened. It was extra special to go back to the Davenport Sam’s…where there still are four of the original employees and share with them their role in what has become a great fund raiser. We thank them for their support and congratulate them on 25-years! Here are some of the staff, with Chad Porter, Store Manager in the middle. cwb
(L-R) Board Member Steve Carter, Duane Mosser, Board President Winnie Williams, and Aly Jobson present Duane and the Anamosa Family Food with the camp Trail Blazer Award. This is camp’s 40th Anniversary, and back during camp’s earliest years the Family Foods Store in Anamosa started supporting the camp. Duane Mosser and his staff do a super job and for being a fairly small operation, they are wonderful about giving back to their community & area. Duane supplied all the cases of green peppers and the 150 pounds of onions that went into feeding as many as 3,000 folks for this year’s omelet breakfast. Duane is super!
