What an outstanding night in Jacksonville, FL! There were many Falling Creek Camp families who came to the Athey’s (Stephanie Jarvis’ parents) beautiful home on the water. Many thanks to Stephanie and Todd Jarvis who joined with her parents to host tonight. It was truly wonderful. Ward and Walker Jarvis are long time FCC campers and are planning to return to main camp next summer.
