When a friend of Highland saw the improvements we were adding at Mt Everett campground last year, they decided to give financially towards the project. Months later, we learned that their gift had been matched by an area business, doubling its value.
With these funds in place and with much help from volunteers, we trenched to add water and 30 amp electric to the three newest campsites at Mt Everett. Remaining funds helped add two stainless serving tables and a dishwashing station on the back of the pavilion.
Then, when we thought the job was finished for the year, a church offered labor and funds to do even more! The result was the addition of a deck and ramp on the side of the pavilion, improving access to the women’s bathhouse and smoothing the transition to the ground below.
At Highland we often have more vision than funds. It is always a blessing when guests, volunteers, and donors help us determine our next steps!
