On route to our Lake Country Go Wild Camp, our youth programs team were involved in a car accident. While no one was badly hurt, we regret that we had to cancel the Lake Country program.
We’d like to put out another thank-you to all those who assisted our youth programs Coordinator, Chris Lim, and his team after the incident. Thank-you Bob and Rhonda Everett of the OCEOLA club for letting Chris stay with you for a brief time. Thank-you Sam Badminton and Robert Gordon for going out and helping unload all our youth program equipment from the truck. We’d also like to thank Barb König and Pat Whittingham for checking on Chris and Derek while they were at the hospital. We’d also like to thank Dave Carleton for going out and grabbing the undamaged canopy from the truck.
Another thank-you goes out to Jocelyne Velando of Avis Car Rental and Danny Coyne of Budget Car Rental, and all those who have sent your kind words and support. Thank-you! “We’d like to say a special thanks to everyone who assisted us after our accident, especially Bob and Rhonda who gave Derek and I a place to stay last week while we were recovering from the accident. We’d also like to thank the Kettle Wildlife Association who have brought in extra volunteers: Les Best, Julian Willsey, Scott Douglas, Jim, Rick, Ron and Mary to help with our Rock Creek Go Wild camp, as Derek and I continue to heal.
The Rock Creek Camp is going well, the kids are having fun, and we couldn’t have done it without all the extra support. Derek and I want to also send out our sincerest apology for not being able to put on our Go Wild Camp in Lake Country. We know several boys and girls were looking forward to it and we are sorry we had to cancel the camp.
-Chris Lim, Youth Program Coordinator
The Rock Creek Go Wild Camp was able to go as scheduled with volunteers from the Kettle Wildlife Association pitching in an extra helping hand to our Youth Program leaders.
