After being postponed from the original date in May, the LWR drive was held at Mount Olive’s parking lot on July 11. Twenty Lutheran churches from southern Montana and northern Wyoming brought 621 boxes weighing 15,008 lbs. of quilts and kits. Mount Olive LWML and quilters donated 138 quilts, 35 personal care kits, and 71 school kits. Many thanks to Grace Lardy, Rachelle Sparks, Kyle Armstong, and Chris Johns for their help in weighing and labeling the 45 boxes from Mount Olive before the drive. And a big thank you to Jason and Lukas Johnson, Kyle Armstrong, Jonathan besel, Nicole Rodriguez, Jamie Robertson, and Chris Johns for their help in loading the 621 boxes into the semi; also, thank you to Lorli Mercer for her help with the paper work. Without all the help from these individuals, it would be impossible for me to do this job. ~ Donnaleen Ganskop, LWML, Southern Zone Coordinator~

Instead of our usualo, %75 deposit, we have lowered that to a $10 non-refundable registration fee whe you register your camper. In the event that your camp is cancelled due to the Covid-19, we will mail you an awesome 2020 camp t-shirt. See the www.trinitylutherancamp.org/camp for more information.
If the camp is opened we will offer a family camp on the weekend of June 19-21. Families will be able to assume the responsibility for the risk of staying together in cabins. We will inform our congregations about this as soon as possible. Kids camp may not be available this year. Montana District LCMS.
