We had a VERY successful auction this April! Between the live, silent, and online auction, we made almost exactly $14,000 for Camp Mardela! We are thrilled with this outcome, as this was our fundraising goal for this event. A BIG thank you to Alan Hutchison for volunteering his time to conduct the auction, the Thursday men for helping move and distribute items, the Easton women for helping sort and display the items, Amy Hutchison and crew for providing food, and the many other volunteers who made this possible.
Easter SON-rise Service
On Easter morning, April 9th, Denton COB, Ridgely COB, and Easton COB presented an Easter SON-rise service for the community to enjoy. We had between 30-40 people come for the service and for breakfast. It was a blessing to see this tradition return to Camp Mardela, and hope to continue it in future years. Thanks to Meghan Knight, Ken George, and Jody Gunn and the many other church volunteers who helped make this event possible.
Yard Sale & BBQ Chicken
On April 22nd we had a Yard Sale & BBQ Chicken Sandwich sale. We made about $2,200, and many new people came through this event. Of the roughly 200 people who came, nearly 60% of them were new to Camp Mardela! This was a great fundraiser AND community event! A big thank you to Amy & Paul Hutchison, Judy & Bob Musch, Jane Marshall, Anne Harvey, and all the others for making this possible.
Chick-fil-a Spirit Night
On May 1st we started the month at the Seaford Chick-fil-a for a "spirit night" where $1 from each purchase between 5pm-8pm was donated back to Camp Mardela. We had several supporters dine-in, and many more in the drive-thru. There were also many others who learned about camp for the first time through this event as well! We raised $380.00 through this fundraiser! We hope to host more restaurant fundraisers like this. Thanks to Sara Potvin and the Fundraising Committee for making this possible.
Camp Clean-Up Day
On May 13th many came to help clean and prepare camp for summer! We had 40-50 volunteers come throughout the course of the day. Many were from the local Brethren churches, helping clean
