Re: [IPp] Camp fees



Hi Joyce.  Do you mean camp needlepoint in Hudson, WI?  We only live about 15 
minutes from there.  We were going to send Jacob there this year (this would 
be the first year he can go) but with the pump start and everything I just 
thought that it would be too hard.  I was just wondering.
