Vern Hart, acting director of the state park authority, also stressed the importance of the association. He said there were several million dollars of federal funds available and the funds could be used for Lovewell but they had to be matched on a 50-50 basis with state funds. This fiscal year the park authority asked for $77,000 to improve Lovewell but was given only SHOO0. Paul Hallard, fiscal officer for the park authority, assured the group that as he prepared the 1974 budget he would again request funds for Lovewell.

The same can be said for the Catholic mass held every Saturday evening at 8 p.m. Catholic services have been held the past four years for the campers at the lake and the protestant services are now in their third year. Attendance at the Sunday morning service varies from a low of 10 to more than 100. This past Sunday, nearly 80 campers crowded into the old schoolhouse. Some brought their own chairs and bad a place to sit while many of the younger ones stretched out on blankets spead on the floor. A few even set in the openings which were once windows, along the walls. Even though it was an in- formal worship service, the spirit of Christ was evident. Those attending services looked like the true campers they were. Most were dressed in shorts or slacks and sandals, but bare feet were more common than dresses and neckties. Many of the men hadn't shaved. Mrs. Burton Gerrard of Concordia was the one that recognized the need for a place for the campers to attend church on Sunday mornings-- many are reluctant to attend formal church services which require formal dress.

Glenn Claycamp, former minister who is now farming during the week and supply preaching on Sundays was the minister last week. It was his first time at the lakeside ser- vices but Ray. Claycamp was quick to explain he welcomed the invitation to speak. He told how one of the great in- spirations of his life was when he attended a similar service in the Rocky Mountains. Mrs. Gerrard told the Ex- press photographer that she really has little trouble finding someone to be in charge of the services. Last week it was a Concordia Sunday school class of which Rev. Claycamp was a member. Next week it may be a youth group but someone is always willing.. Following the services, 15 to 20 younsgters gather in the old schoolhouse for Sunday school.
