Many thanks to Tim Bell and the Men’s Retreat committee for the wonderful retreat they put together. It was a fulfilling blessing from start to finish. Congratulations to Tim “Robin Hood” Smitley for a dead on shot with his bow on a two inch iron disc at forty yards; a shot that was challenging, even for the fellas shooting 22′s. His carbon arrow didn’t survive the impact, but the impact of his shot will survive in our minds for a long, long, time.
We want to thank the churches and donors toward the new addition of the Men’s Retreat work project. We received $640 toward the $800 Nelson cabin roof project and so were unable to do the project at Men’s Retreat. But as the remainder funds come in we are planning to complete the project before snow flys. But the men still had a mind to work anyway, and so they went to plan B and cut and delivered about 6 face cords of firewood to a family that was very grateful.
