Our eldest daughter Erica is spending about 8 weeks working at Marmon Valley Farm, where we spent much of last summer. She’s in a Junior Staff position, working as a stable hand and kitchen staff.
We’re immensely proud of her, even if it did entail putting her on a plane by herself from Tulsa to Columbus. I wasn’t quite ready for the emotions there, but that’s life. We know the staff and the farm there, and she worked there last summer (along with us) for a couple of months, so she knows the place, the work, the people, and the horses. Still….
At any rate, MVF has an evening gathering where they pass out mail sent to campers and staff (including emails sent through the CampEmail system). Every night a camper or staff member gets more than 3 messages or pieces of mail (or 1 package), they have to sing in the All-Mail choir, made up of everyone who receives mail that day. They hold this gathering Every. Night. Of. Camp.
Awww! She’s feeling forgotten and left out! Now lest you think we’re being horrible parents, we’ve talked to her three times since she’s arrived at camp on 2 June, and I’ve emailed her twice. But if she wants mail, give her mail!
Her address, in case you can’t make it out in the image, is
Marmon Valley Ministries
7754 State Route 292
Zanesfield, OH 46330
If you use CampEmail, use “Unknown” as her cabin. CampEmail messages get printed out and delivered with evening mail, so these count towards the singing eligibility.
Feel free to share this post with your friends. I want to make sure she gets lots of mail!
