As part of their week at camp High School youth group campers made fleece tie blankets. These were part of their service projects while at Sugar Creek, as well as Mississippi River clean-up.
The blankets were donated to Sleep in Heavenly Peace, Vernon County, WI, an organization that provides beds for children without a place to sleep. Please check out their FaceBook page in the link provided.
Only $15 to attend. Price covers program, refreshments, pastry, and lunch.
Call 608-734-3113, or email to save your spot.

Looking for a Few Good Homes
Do you love horses? Have extra space in your barn or pasture? Ever thought about having a horse of your own? Why don't you try boarding a horse from Sugar Creek over the winter to try it out first?
We are looking for a safe loving environment for our horses to be sheltered through fall, winter and into spring. You can pick-up or we can deliver. We will provide tack for you.
Call the Sugar Creek office at 608-734-3113 if you are interested and we will talk about the options. Thank You!
Grateful! Thankful! Blessed!
