Our Green Chair Fundraiser is off to GREAT start. 12 chairs have already been sold in less than a week! A big THANK YOU to all who have purchased a green chair so far. We still have many more chairs that we hope to sell so keep passing the word along!!!
The green Adirondack chairs at Camp Christian have become almost a tradition at Camp. The conversations and fellowship that happens around the circles of these chairs during the summer is regularly listed as a favorite amongst Campers.
Every summer the campers express a desire for more green chair circles. With this in mind, the Camp Christian Committee has put together a fundraiser to include the whole region as we provide chairs for the campers while raising needed funds for camp.
Our plan is to make 45 chairs (20 to stay at camp, the other 25 going to peoples’ homes) andto raise $10,000.
The funds raised will go to Camp Operations (repairs, general maintenance, utilities, kitchen needs, and supporting staff members).
We are building and want to obtain sponsors for 20 chairs that would ultimately remain at camp. We will also take orders for up to 25 more chairs that people can buy for their own use. Sponsored chairs staying at camp would include a dedication plate on them with wording chosen by the sponsor.
Ordering will end when all the chairs are sponsored or sold, or the end of April. Credit cards are accepted. Purchased chairs may be picked up at camp during the Camp Christian Market Day on May 2, or delivered to your church in late May, if you prefer.

Late this past fall a big project began to help fix the drainage problem around the gym and around the cabin clusters on that same side of camp. The project was completed and now things are draining around those buildings the way they should be. This was a very necessary step that was taken in order to keep those buildings safe and in good working condition.
BUT…camp could REALLY use more gravel. If you are interested in giving to help meet this need, please contact Ted Nelson, Camp Christian CampSite Manager. His contact information can found on the regional website at http://www.ccinoh.com

Each Ohio Disciples Congregation will also receive a packet of hard copies of the forms and information in the mail over the next week or so. I just wanted to be sure you knew where to access them online in the meantime. We are looking forward to having another wonderful Summer at Camp Christian!!
This past weekend, not only did Advance Conference have their annual Winter Retreat at camp, but the first Work Day of the New Year year took place as well. With only a handful of volunteers a lot was accomplished in just one day. A big THANK YOU to those who gave their time this past Sunday, to help begin the clean up projects at camp. The next work day is scheduled for Saturday, February 8th.
