Update from the Occupation – Sunday, June 18

Occupation Day 16

Camp seemed in much better shape to face the rain today. Thanks so much for the storage bins!

Despite the drizzle, or perhaps because of it, we had a lovely dinner. There was a rainbow again and Dorothy brought delicious daal and rice.

Jessica brought bananas and watermelon to share. And gifted camp a large cooler!

There has been a call for workers to help with lawn care and the sign move tomorrow at 10 am. Kelli is leading that effort, with the support of her husband, Steve. (FYI, the long measuring tape was in the tool box when I left today!)

I’ll be off site all day tomorrow. Please sign up for shifts!

In solidarity,
