FUEL:
FUEL is just 3 weeks away; this year’s them is EPIC.  Guthrie Grove pays ½ of the tuition at the EARLY-BIRD registration price.  If you haven’t registered, see Rebecca/Nikki ASAP.  Youth workers (23 & older) are encouraged to attend, and we encourage contributions to the Beth Simpson Camp Fund or the BYF, to help aid in upcoming FUEL tuition/transportation costs.
