Sioux City Camp Taking Time to Celebrate

Those awards honor the volunteers who demonstrated outstanding service to the camp for people with disabilities. In 2015, nearly 200 people volunteered to help in some way at the Camp. Volunteers spent more than 1,500 hours at the camp.

CEO Ali Langseth says these people are incredibly important. "Without volunteers, we would not exist, we would not be able to sustain. It just would not be possible. So for us to take just one day out and thank them to say, you make a difference to us you make our camp possible."

Inspiration from nature: Is it for the birds or not?

For the past two weeks, I have been watching a bird in my back yard while I drink my morning coffee.  At first, I thought it was just one of the pesky birds waiting for me to go inside so it could enjoy the cat food in the automatic feeder set out for the feral kitties who live in our back yard.  Over a couple of days, I noticed a pattern to this bird’s activities that didn’t have anything to do with cat food.  This bird was building a nest in the Ficus tree.
