Took Brenda and her canine ward, Lucy, up to the Episcopal Church Camp of Illinois session at East Bay Camp a few miles north of Bloomington. Archdeacon Shawn and Mary Anne Denney were there, along with Diocesan Administrator Sue Spring and her husband Dave, as well as a handful of parishioners from St Luke's in Springfield--all gathered to serve boxes of KFC chicken and goodies to three groups of hungry campers and counselors. It was a good visit to a much-beloved summer camping program for children and youth that has touched countless lives over a period of several decades. And how grateful we are for better (cooler) weather this year than the last couple.
