As we mentioned yesterday, all campers must pitch in and help keep their cabins clean, but this duty extends beyond the four walls of their little brown cabins around the upper and lower sports fields. Prior to and following each meal, one of the ten teams is assigned “mess hall duty” to help set the tables and set the food on the tables prior to the meal, then they remain to clean up the mess hall once the other nine teams are dismissed from the mess hall. If you’ve ever been around MSC Sr. Week, then you know that Ms. Belinda and her kitchen staff love to hear the campers singing hymns as they enter the mess hall for each meal, and continue to sing a few additional hymns prior to the prayer and eating the meal.
This morning’s mess hall duty team, the Navy team led by Craig & Ronna Howell, went above and beyond the call of duty once they had returned the mess hall to a spic-and-span condition. As tradition goes, with their sacrificial attitude of servitude, the kitchen staff waits until each meal is complete and the campers have vacated the mess hall before they sit down to eat. While they were eating, the Navy team surrounded the kitchen staff table as they ate and sang “Light the Fire” as an appreciation for all their hard work.
Huge kudos go out to Katie Colvin, Kollin Sokeland, Olivia Stout, Aaron Ottersbach, Jason Jarrels, ALana Dickey, Shelby King, Dillon Boling, Isaac Hathaway, Parker Niemeier, Amari Howard, Sarah Smith, Jacob Lanius, Tori Baber, Tiara Collier, Avery Hosfield, Mitchell King, Jacob Seidel, Briley Farkas, Maddy Provines, James Evans, and Craig & Ronna for being such encouragers and shining examples. Please continue to display your admirable attitude of gratitude.
