Celebration for the Life of Gus Deeds on May 3

Please join us for a celebration of the life of Gus Deeds on Saturday, 3 May 2014, at Nature Camp.  We will gather in the Reeves Memorial Chapel at 3:00 PM to share stories, memories, and music.  A reception and potluck supper will follow (please bring a dish to share for the latter; Nature Camp will supply beverages).  For those who would like to stay and continue the celebration, overnight accommodations will be available in the bunkhouses (minors must be accompanied by a parent or designated guardian), and a simple brunch will be served on Sunday morning.  Because parking is limited in Nature Camp, please consider using the shuttle service available from the Vesuvius Baptist Church (directions below).  Shuttles will operate continuously from 1:45 to 2:45 and then again from 5:00 to 6:30.
