Today's News
YES!!!!! Well, I know we are all just a bit excited. I understand there was quite the celebration last night once everyone got back to the housing site. ‘Wish I was there.

It seems like the first camp was not all that long ago. It’s hard to believe we are here already; the last day of this season. And what a season it was!

GO RED TEAM!!

Happy birthday to Dan “the Britt” and Luba!
