We need volunteers at Shelter Neck UU Camp for the next two Saturdays!
November 3 and 10 to attempt to complete tearing out walls to prepare to sanitize and treat wood with a mold treatment! This must happen prior to lifting buildings and restoration. Your help will allow us to move our restoration forward so we can be of service to the areas so seriously impacted by Florence! Sign Up Here.
Thank you from the Shelter Neck UU Camp Board

Yesterday was a busy day at Shelter Neck. Continued work on tearing out the walls at Dix House. We were particularly happy to welcome Allison, Ethan and Logan who are counselors and former campers from Shelter Neck UU Summer Camp. They were on fall break this week and made some time to come to Shelter Neck. Thanks, friends.
