Snow, Snow, and More Snow
Beginning, April 15, through Monday, April 18, a total of 38 inches of snow fell at RMMC. With the Spring Mennonite Quilters retreat at camp that weekend, there was plenty to shovel and plow to make it possible for the quilters to get to and from the Dining Hall where their quilting stations were. Many of the quilters didn’t mind being snow in – it gave them an excuse to quilt longer! The photo shown was taken Sunday morning as we worked to uncover the cars in the parking lot. “Everyone was cheerful and helpful AND we could enjoy the snow even though we know it was a BIG job for the guys and gals that shoveled snow. WHAT PAMPERING!!” – a quilter’s response on the evaluation

You’ve Been Spotted!

We spotted Dave Miller (Greeley, CO) wearing his RMMC t-shirt. Dave, pictured here with his wife Linda, took this photo in Manarola, Italy while on vacation there this past year. Dave currently serves on the RMMC board and has been a faithful volunteer at camp (when he’s not on vacation!) We also spotted Steve Buller (Blair, NE) wearing his RMMC hat. Steve was in Ireland and posed to take this photo near the St Kevins Monastery in Glendalough. Steve and his family have attended RMMC’s Family Camp for many years.  Thanks, Dave and Steve, for sharing RMMC with Europe!
