Camp Elk Shoals, West Jefferson, Ashe County, North Carolina
Saturday 10 May 2014
A group of singers met at Boondocks in West Jefferson for lunch. There were enough of us that they gave us a separate space with tables pushed together. Of course we sang - so they closed the doors to our space. :) (It was a good singing space, too!)

After lunch we went to Camp Elk Shoals for the Memorial Service in the Chapel on the New there.
