Our very last stop on the tour was spent with the leadership team in our hometown of Bellingham, Washington. Becca Johnson invited Allan and I to attend their barbeque and share a little about the RFK tour. We showed the map displaying the 62 events we attended, including visits to 22 camps in session. Since our skit with the Three-headed Counselor was such a hit at all the camps, we selected three leadership team members to participate…to great applause! Becca asked us to honor her co-director, Kim Smith for being an outstanding volunteer, going above and beyond anything that needed to be done. Kim’s mom Nancy, was known as “The Tie-Dye” lady, so we gave her a large box of tie-dye supplies donated by Tulip crafts.
It was a bittersweet moment as we shared stories about all the amazing campers and volunteers we met on our six month, 15,000 mile RV trip around the US. Everywhere we went, we met volunteers giving their time and talents to better the lives of campers. We felt honored to “come full circle” and return to the town where we first got connected with Royal Family KIDS. The group prayed for us as we head off to another chapter in our lives, with positive memories of Royal Family KIDS.
