Yes, Due to unforseen circumstances - the amount of fun that was had at the 2013 retreat at Walnut Place was so overwhelming that we are unable to describe to anyone what went on... but we would like all to know - that although it has been previously reported that the retreat in the year 2013 was to be the last - we are having another retreat in 2014.... 

More news to come - what goes on at Walnut Place Retreat Stays at Walnut Place Retreat...

There are some leaks from Walnut Place - be aware that we will not say whether they are truthful or not - just watch for them....

Can't wait Thea!  You stay well so those leaks could be authenticated in a timely manner.

OK ladies, I have booked the retreat center in Story City for next year - September 24 - 28, 2014!!! This place is larger and everything is on one level. There is also more space and sleeping arrangements, so we will be able to open up the retreat to more people! We will have room for an additional 6 people, so spread the word!

I did have to pay a deposit on this retreat center, so I am going to ask everyone to pay a $25 deposit. Then the final fee will be determined by how many people we have attend. The total cost is $1520 whether there are 10 people or 20. I am hoping to get at least 15 people, so then the cost would be 101.33/person. You can make the deposit check out to me and send it to PO Box 467, Roland, IA 50236.

I wish I could sign up...but this falls right during our fiscal year end and there is no way the boss will let me take time off.  Darn it!

Judy, I have told myself every day for weeks to get this check in the mail - so today instead of saying when I get up and around to grab my purse - I just did it - it will be winging its way to you today...it is truly in the mailbox and the mailman should pick it up shortly.

I have put in a little extra for Barbara - if she is able to get there - I should be able to help out a little more towards her cost soon but I am not sure where I will be so she will have to find transportation if anyone in her area could pick her up???

Judy, put me down. I may have to fly in though unless I can get to Missouri and ride with someone from there. I'll get a check in the mail tomorrow if the postman comes by. It's icy today!

Great to have you join us Roxana! I'll put you on the list! I know Isabella files into Des Moines, maybe you could coordinate flights and ride up together.

You've got ice in Hot Springs? My mom lives in Rogers and I know she said they've had snow on the ground for a couple weeks now. Very unusual for that area!!

Roxana, if you make your way to liberty, MO you can ride with me and Barbara, if she's planning to go by then. We will just have to pack light, as I have a ford escape and it's not huge. Well talk closer to the time.

Elaine, that sounds wonderful. We could take my car from there is need be. I'd just have to have driving help. Keep me in mind and, yes, we can talk more the closer to time. Thanks.

This is being held at a church camp near Story City, Iowa. It is about 45 miles north of Des Moines. We have a few spots open still :)
