For the Camino Community Action Committee, 2012 was a busy year from our first Apple Blossom Flea Market, to our annual Camino Cleanup. Along the way the CCAC continued our Camino Serves Nights that raised funds to provide supplies for Camino School and seed money for the Camino Cares project. National Night Out in Camino is always an anticipated neighborhood gathering. The CCAC may be proudest of Camino Cares, our Christmas giving project that helped 42 families and over 110 members of our community.
Thank you to our community members who have donated their time and money, especially the Forester Restaurant, for letting us serve dinners and keep the tips for Camino Serves. We couldn’t hold our annual Camino Cleanup in May without the assistance of El Dorado Disposal in providing dumpsters and Sierra Pacific Industries by allowing us to use their property. We appreciate Apple Mill Storage for allowing us to hold our Apple Blossom Days Flea Market in its storage area.
A very special appreciation goes to the Van Gilder family, whose teenage son, Nick, started Camino Cares to help the less fortunate in our community, and to Nick’s sister, Kristen, who is ensuring the continued success of the program. Thanks also go to the Camino Parent-Teacher Organization for donating books to Camino Cares families.
Lastly, thank you to Vicini Construction Inc., Doug Veerkamp Construction, Snows Quarry, and EID, for donating their time and low-cost materials to help us repair and upgrade the track at Camino School.
We look forward to continuing to help our community in 2013. It takes a community with heart and Camino has that.
Thank you all.
