RV Park and Campground Briefs
From a news release:
Cape May’s David and Maggy Robinson, owners of Holly Shores Camping Resort, recently made a generous donation of $1,500 to the Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) of Cape May County.
Volunteers in Medicine of Cape May County provides primary care and most medications at no cost to uninsured patients. Their experienced cadre of more than 100 physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, ophthalmologists, registered nurses and administrative personnel volunteer their time, skill and energy to care for patients.
Since its beginning in 2002, VIM has cared for over 3,500 patients with more than 18,000 patient visits. To celebrate 10 years of “Neighbors Caring for Neighbors” VIM hosted a Celebration Brunch at the Avalon Links Golf Club on March 11. In attendance was Sarah Mathis, marketing director of Holly Shores, on behalf of David and Maggy Robinson. They are proud supporters of VIM and have been donating to this great cause since 2002.
From CKOM-Radio, Saskatoon:
Campsites officially went on sale Tuesday (March 20) for the Craven Country Jamboree, scheduled for July 12-15 near Craven Saskatchewan. There are a few spots left in the reserve area and general camping passes are available.
Last year, the campgrounds were actually off site, because the normal location was completely flooded. This year is a different story.
“We didn’t get a lot of snow this year. There’s not going to be a lot of runoff from Long Lake,” said Kim Blevins, who is with the Craven Country Jamboree.
Because of that, Blevins with the jamboree says they'll be back in the usual spot this year. And the campground area has been improved.
“We built some of our roads out there and then we went across the entire campground (and) we leveled it out, seeded and then overseeded,” she said.
Blevins jokes that they do kind of feel like farmers now, hoping that it will rain a little bit so the grass will actually grow.
Despite the struggles last year, Blevins says the changes made to the site will make them better prepared any potential major future floods.
Three to four inches of rain have already fallen since Monday in north-central Arkansas, and forecasters are expecting more in the next two days. Because of that heavy rainfall, several campgrounds in the Ozark-St. Francis national forests are closed at least through Thursday (March 22). They are: Haw Creek Falls Recreation Area, Horsehead Lake Recreation Area, Redding Recreation Area and Wolf Pen Recreation Area.
