UOO 2009 Camp - Day 2

Today the kids started out with a trip to Miller farms to pick huge, yummy vegetables. As always, this is a huge event because Ukrainian kids love vegetables. The Miller farm grows 'em big, too! Pictured above, Ryha Stoesz leads the way for us! Picture below, there's always time for a pedal-tractor race at Miller Farms!

Most of these veggies end up in our annual community dinner, which is scheduled this year for July 12th from 5-9 pm. Do come out for it if you can. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Kids are free! So come feed the family, meet the kids, and enjoy some good times!

More down time was in order as the kids returned to the Lake house for more boat rides and swimming. We ended the day with a meal provided by one of our many volunteers. Thank you all, this camp couldn't happen without your support!

UOO 2009 Camp - Day 1

After a night of rest, it was exciting to meet our new guests. We had long ago planned down time the first day to let them acclimate to after a grueling 14+ hours of flying, a huge time change, and lack of sleep. Here they are at the Carman's lake home in Loveland, looking chipper as ever. They are (listed from left to right, front row then back row): Vova, Sasha, "Little" Dima, "Little" Yulia, Olya & "Big" Dima, Tatianna (chaperon), Nastya, "Big" Yulia (chaperon) and Marina. With them are Eric Carman, Clarke & Amanda Stoesz of UOO.
