One Month to Go!

Are you all getting excited yet?  Have you planned what you are going to work on?  Have you made your reservations... be they at a hotel, motel or perhaps a relatives house?  Have you made some cards for OWH, or at least thought about what you will make for them at camp?

Sadly, Elizabeth had to drop out of camp due to physical therapy for her shoulder. We wish her a speedy recovery and will certainly miss her at camp this year. 

As some of you may know... there will be some "activities" at camp so you will not have the entire camp time to work on your own projects.  Just know that there will be some additional things to do.  

As always, if you have any questions don't hesitate to e-mail me, call me, send me a card (LOL).

See you soon!

Food Options at Camp

I contacted a friend who is vegetarian and lives near Scrapbook Island. Here are some suggestions from her regarding vegetarian fare at camp.

 Whole Foods. The big one is at Blossom Hill and Almaden.

The best vegetarian restaurant around is The Vegetarian House downtown- it's a full menu, sit down with a real restaurant feel. 520 East Santa Clara Street  San Jose, CA 95112
(408) 292-3798

There is also the Happy Bamboo which is near the hwy 85/camden ramp:
1711 Branham Ln # A9  San Jose, CA 95118
(408) 694-0740

There is fast food vegan at Loving Hut in Oakridge mall and other places in town- it is a chain. 

There is the new Sunflower store on Branham near Amaden where the old OSH used to be. 

I'll update with more food options as we get closer, but just want to have a place to list some ideas for places near the Island.

Let me know if you have a favorite in the area :-)

Camp Updates

Well, while JJ is off camping (the real kind) I thought you might want an update on how things are coming along for our own camp!  It's just a little over six weeks until we all meet up for camp, getting excited?

 Have you made some cards for the special Operation Write Home project?  Bring them along, or some good ideas to make some at camp!  Raffle tickets for the "grand prize" are given out for cards brought to camp ( 2 cards = 1 ticket) and those made at camp (1 card = 1 ticket).  Cardstock and a limited selection of stamps will be available at camp.  I'd really like people to at least make some Any Hero cards!

I know one camper who has made her plane reservations, and I think most everyone who is staying at a hotel has made theirs also.

Many of the things planned for camp are complete or on their way to completion.  JJ has all the ________ and is working on some ____________. Tracy is working on ______& ______.  Nancy finished up the ________ and is working on _______. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail  Nancy   nancine at sbcglobal dot net.

There are no swap items that YOU the camper need worry about making.
