e-Buddies Speak Out!

What is "e-Buddies Speak Out!"? We want to hear from you! So, each quarter, we pose a different question to you -- the e-Buddies Community -- and we publish your responses!

This month, we asked:

"What are your plans for the summer?"

Here's what you said:

Tony T. from New York says:
"My plans for the summer I will play paint ball all summer long. I will ride my 4 wheeler all summer long and in the mud."

--

Robin F. from Maryland says (via her friend, Debbie):
"Robin plans to attend a summer camp through Christian Records. She has done this for the last few years and thoroughly enjoyed it. Last year it was at Pine Lake in Florida, but it will not be held there this year. There are multiple options, and she is in the process of deciding. The campers participate in swimming, crafts, tubing, singing, and have programs where they discuss the Bible. One of the best activities is a talent show where Robin gets to sing. (She has a great voice!)"

Wendy B. from Ontario says:
This summer i am going to Camp Bellwood. I am going the last week of July and the first week of August. The camp is near Fergus, Ontario. I do many activities when i am there. I swim, make crafts and sing around a campfire. This year I will participate in a walk-a-thon. I am hoping to fill my sponsor sheet. I am looking forward to going. I always have fun. I will also be visiting my parents in Collingwood. We plan to do this in August. I swim with my parents. Sometimes my dad watches us, if the water is too cold. We shop at Zellers and eat out. I stay there for 1 week. It is always nice to be at home. My birthday is on July 9 and this year I am planning a party at my apartment. This will be my first time not going out for my birthday. I will celebrate my fifty third birthday with friends, and maybe my parents. I have a very busy summer planned and it will go very fast.
