Every semester the North Carolina Chapter gets the privilege
to head out towards our coast and participate in a service event at the quaint
Roanoke Christian Service Camp. Over the many years we have done various
projects for the camp to prepare for the coming summer season, so much so that
we believe we have basically built the camp ourselves. This semester, on
February 4th, we continued with a project we had started during the
fall semester. The camp director had decided that the boy’s dormitory was too
dark and wanted to paint it a light blue to help lighten it up. We were able to
add another layer to the paint and also painted the doors and door frames of the
many rooms white. While there we were also able to help the director clean out
a room and hang some new LED light fixtures in the dorm. It is always a joy to
volunteer at the camp because of the beautiful view of the sound it provides.
Even though we were only there for a few hours we were able to help the camp
director achieve a few different projects that would have taken him at least a
week to do by himself. It’s always a good feeling to help make a difference and
to bond as a brotherhood at the same time.
