Heritage Fair & Diamond Dash - Sept. 21
Heritage Fair is the place to see friends old and new, eat great food, have fun, fill your pantry and enjoy camp!  For the Middle PA Churches it’s also a time to raise funds for CBD and Middle District ministries.  

For children there’s a special area with scarecrow making, face painting, a bounce house, the sawdust pile, and lots of games and activities. Adults and youth can enjoy musicians, food and craft booths, displays, the Diamond Dash 5K run/walk, the Dunk Tank, Dance Dance Revolution, 4-Square and GaGa. The Heritage Fair Team hopes your church is thinking Heritage Fair and is making plans on how to participate with a booth and donated auction items.

For those who want to stay overnight Friday and/or Saturday, lodging is available in the Lodge ($24 each), summer camp cabins ($12 each, minimum $48) and the newly improved RV campground, which now has 30 & 50 amp service on all sites ($22, $26 or $30/night, depending on hook-ups).

Camp Blue Diamond Hoss Event Thank You!
Thanks to all who attended the June 9th Hoss Event at the Duncansville, Lewistown, Huntingdon and Bedford Hoss's Restaurants. Nearly $2000 was raised for Camp Blue Diamond. The proceeds raised will go to replace the Heritage House pavilion which sits across from the Ouch House. The Heritage House pavilion is used for summer camp Bible studies and while camper groups wait to check in with the camp nurse. Outdoor School uses the pavilion as class space, and it is a focal point of Heritage Fair too. Enjoy the pictures of those who attended the Event!
