December Share the Plate – Camp de Benneville Pines
Our Share the Plate organization in December is Camp de Benneville Pines, located in the San Bernardino National Forest east of Los Angeles. Many members of UUCP have enjoyed the camp and its programs since its founding in 1961 by our former minister, the Rev. Ray Manker. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the camp had to cease operations in March. Then in September the El Dorado fire threatened to destroy it. Fire crews saved the buildings but there is the possibility of flood damage this winter. An “Emergency Fund” was started to pay for operational expenses and efforts to protect the camp and preserve it until it can re-open.
Please note SHARE THE PLATE in the check Memo or drop-down.
