April Benevolence: Camp Lebanon Baptist Camp & Conference Center is a 110 acre hideaway located in  Lebanon NJ. We are owned and operated by the American Baptist Churches of New Jersey. Camp Lebanon has been a favorite site for campers since 1949. From June to September Camp Lebanon offers over night camp for children from 1st through 12th grade.  Counselors from across the nation and from many foreign countries come to Camp Lebanon for many reasons, but primarily they find it to be a place to become closer to God and to share His love with the campers. Children enjoy the love, warmth, laughter, tears, friendships, fun, and memories which remain throughout the years. http://www.camplebanon.com

Riverview Photo Book Riverview Estates is celebrating 50 years of ministry in 2014! To celebrate they are putting together a new photo-book for their community, but they need OUR help to make it a success. On May 10, from 10AM to 5PM, Riverview is looking for volunteers to help check people in for their sittings. The job is easy, and the benefit for Riverview is HUGE. So please, sign up for an hour or two - and bring a friend to be your partner! In addition, you may reserve a slot for your OWN sitting!  You'll be able to say if you want your picture to appear in the book or not, but either way you will receive a photo (with the option to order a package, of course).  If Riverview registers 200 sittings, their photo-book becomes hard-bound.
