Last Thursday, members of the WES K-Kids club making “tumbleweeds “ for Camp Boggy Creek, a Paul Newman ‘SeriousFun’ camp.  The goal of Camp Boggy Creek is to provide a fun escape for children with serious illnesses, and their families. Boggy Creek gives the children and families a chance to reach beyond illness, and discover joy, confidence, and a new world of opportunities. Camp Boggy Creek is free of charge for the families. 
The ‘tumbleweeds’ help to recognize, and reward a camper for doing a good deed, doing something nice for/to someone at camp. The hope is that by the end of the camp session the tumbleweeds will be gone, but the pieces of yarn will have been tied to someone’s lanyard to recognize the good deeds!
The K-Kids made 51 ‘tumbleweeds’ at Thursday’s meeting!  This beats the 40 tumble week effort made by Siesta Key Kiwanis members at a recent meeting when they tried their hand a Tumbleweed production.
