Bluegrass Basket Challenge for Member Congregations

Mark your calendars! This summer the Bluegrass Festival will be Saturday, July 26th at Camp Vermilion!


As part of the Bluegrass Festival, VLM will have a basket raffle to raise funds to get more kids to camp. We have challenged each member congregation to put together a basket for the raffle. If you want to be part of this challenge, we encourage you to contact your church's VLM delegate or email Laura from the Bluegrass Committee. The basket that raises the most money will earn their congregation a free overnight retreat at Camp Hiawatha or Camp Vermilion next winter. So work together with your church to put together an awesome basket, and be sure to join us this July at the Bluegrass Festival!
