Sugar Bush camp was run by Elder Porky White.Now his relatives, who are running the camp, are in danger of public domain taking the land for development of park and bike trails...We have very few sugar bush camps left.
please help...sent letters attend the meeting in Jan...this is terrible...please pass this along to all who have been involved with the camp..and those that are sick of development taking things for public domain..Peace Debbra
