Dozens of Volunteers Help Out at Lake Logan

By Sinclaire Sparkman, Diocesan Missioner for Communication

The sounds of chainsaws, leaf blowers, and laughter rang out at Lake Logan this weekend as about 80 volunteers showed up to help with improvement projects at Lake Logan and Camp Henry.

"It's a great chance for a lot of adults and a few kids to go back to Camp for the weekend. Just sing songs and play and have fun and get some work done," said Michelle Minks, a weekend volunteer and parishioner at Trinty, Asheville.

Major projects included cleaning up the burn pile near the Alpine Tower, organizing the maintenance shed, getting the Boojum ready for camp this summer, clearing a sight line to the Lake from the main office, along with several other projects.

"A really important focus of this (and all future) volunteer weekends was the intentionality of making connections between Camp Henry campers, staff and alumni and our Lake Logan folks. We had volunteers from 8 years old to 81 and every age in between. It was really fun to witness everyone sharing their love of this truly amazing place by giving back and working alongside each other. The Saturday night bluegrass band and square dance really capped the weekend with tons of laughter and good times. We look forward to seeing everyone back at the Lake for our next Volunteer Weekend in November," said Lake Logan Director Laura Elliot.
