  • Fishing if time to spare
Remember to bring:

Skits if you have for the camp fire (you don’t have to mark those!)Star gazing (beautiful place for it) – IF ANYONE HAS A TELESCOPE, PLEASE BRING IT
For our hosts:
Bill Mureiko and his family are being incredibly kind to us, and are basically giving us their whole day.  I offered some kind of compensation besides the service project, without success. They produce their own meat (sausage, bacon, etc…, processed in town).  They sent me home with some when I went to visit the place.  It is delicious!  After I gently insisted on doing something for them, Bill suggested that if people were so inclined, they could stop by their property store on the way out.  I think it is a fantastic idea, and a useful way to thank them and “bring home the bacon!”  Please keep that in mind.  Thank you.

 

 

BIG CHANGE FROM THE USUAL: NO MASS OR CONFESSIONS SATURDAY; MASS SUNDAY AT 1100 AT THE THIEN TAM MONASTERY (5 MIN AWAY).

This is the place, but do not enter here.  Enter at the next dirt road on the right hand-side (next pic).

At the end of the dirt road, make a right through the gate (see next picture) and look for the TSG1 sign for camping area, across from the house in this picture. Drop your stuff off then return to this area and park your vehicle back to the left side of the house.  If the grounds are wet, we will stay on the dirt road.

This is the path to the camping area.  Look for the sign.  The trailer will NOT be there (it will be farther down by the campfire area).
