  3. I was wondering if you need volunteers for the family education camp out I’m great for cooking organizing young people activities and any number of things. I would love to get very involved I just moved back to Utah after 4 years and a large part of why is because of the careless auctioning off of our heritage. Let me know if there is anything I can do whether it be alternative energy demonstrations such as solar oven building and cooking or various alternatives such as wind water or solar powered small generators. I sincerely hope to hear from you. My kids and I will be there regardless. Have a blessed day!
