Happy New Year friends,

May the year 2017 be full of health and happiness for you and your families. Below are updates on camp needs, next location, and the January 20 Art Show and Sale by Daniel Cottrell and Dawn Goldsmith of Camp Unity.  Please share with others.

Shower trailer fund:   Funds are still needed to reach our goal of $2,000 to buy a replacement trailer to haul the shower and install it.   If you can help, please mail your donation to Camp Unity Eastside, PO Box 342, Redmond, WA 98073, and note that it is for the trailer fund.  THANK YOU to those who have donated so far.

Camp meals:   Thank you also to everyone who brought meals, donations, and friendship to the campers in December. Very special!  Looking ahead at the meals calendar, there are openings this week and later in January if anyone would like to sign up or spread the word.  Or, if you can drop by the camp with protein items such as hamburger or bacon that campers can use to prepare a meal, that helps too.

Camp location:  Also – a huge thank you to Kirkland Congregational Church for hosting Camp Unity.  The camp will be there until February 3 and the proposed next location is St. Jude Parish, 10526 166th Ave NE, Redmond.  Volunteers are especially needed for the next move on Feb 3 and 4.  If you can help, please contact Mark Van Wormer at or 206-963-1694.

Camp capacity:  There are about 14 campers now and the camp has capacity for additional men or women who need shelter in a drug and alcohol free environment.   If you’re aware of or meet someone who is homeless, you can let them know they can call the camp at 425-652-9170. The camp supervisors on duty will assist them.

Current Camp Needs:  Hand and toe warmers, bottled water, paper towels, AAA and D batteries, a replacement shower curtain and plastic rings.  Thermal underwear tops and bottoms in extra large sizes:   XL to XXXL for several men and large to XXXL for the couple women.   Please bring any donations to the camp at Kirkland Congregational Church, 106 5th Avenue.

Art Show and Sale – Friday, January 20, 2017:  With the close of 2016, the visions that Daniel Cottrell and Dawn Goldsmith of Camp Unity created this past summer will be displayed and available at St. Bartholomew Church.  Church address is 14821 Avondale Rd. NE, Woodinville and the show is from 3 pm to 7 pm

Daniel and Dawn invite you to the show and to take this journey with them.  The Art displayed at the show will be a depiction of this.

Daniel Cottrell’s days are full with working and painting these dreams of days present and past and with each creation he has made, you will see the detailing of whimsies and so much more.  Daniel’s unique look at anime art and conventional art depictions will leave the viewers breathless, with his overall flow and insight.

Artist Dawn Goldsmith at the intermediate stage of acrylic medium, has also detailed her visions of this past summer, her highs and lows through these feeling are depicted in her art.  Dawn’s art will have small inserts relaying her thoughts at these moments.

They would love for our community to see what can be created with small blessings. Previews of Art Works on display at the show will be uploaded to the Camp Unity website on January 13, 2017.   For more information please contact either Dawn at 206-457-7301 or Daniel at 425-260-0721.  Hope to see you there!
