Annual Meeting

Saturday, February 7 VLM's delegates and supporters will gather at First Lutheran Church in Aitkin for the Annual Meeting of the Corporation. All are invited to join us as we gather to celebrate the ministry and the mission of VLM. We will review the past year and look forward to the year to come.

We especially invite you to lift up in prayer VLM's delegates, board of directors, volunteers, and staff. Pray for guidance and wisdom as as together we do the work of Camp Hiawatha and Camp Vermilion and make important decisions about the future and direction of our ministry.
