Memorial Day Weekend – Saturday Night at the Tent

Memorial Day Weekend came to a close at Indian Creek Baptist Church with three great artists on Saturday night – Gold City, Tim Lovelace and Triumphant Quartet.  Once again, we were blessed by hearing from one of the campers as the evening began.

Singing At Sea Cruise | Thursday

Singing At Sea Cruise | Chichen Itza
