Come work and play in the mountains of Kentucky! We drive over on Sunday afternoon and return Wednesday afternoon. This intergenerational trip has over 20 years of history at BRP. The kids must be rising 6th graders and the adults don’t need special skills. Well, except Joe Anne, who works her magic keeping us nourished.
We stay at guest houses at Buckhorn State Park. It’s a perfect retreat after a hard days’ work. There’s a pool. There’s the lake. There are deer; all of this and mini golf. Our efforts benefit the staff and recovering children who live and work at the Buckhorn Children’s Center. We usually paint, clean or spruce up the grounds. We are welcomed like big city cousins.
Expected costs (for food and comfortable lodging):
Adults $75: Youth $60 Assistance is available.
Call Mary Nebelsick or Jennie Guelda (558-8151).

Presbyterian churches in the area are joining together once again this year to sponsor a new house with Habitat for Humanity.

This year's house will begin in July, and Bardstown Road Presbyterian's turn to send volunteers to the site will be Saturday, July 28.
