Members of Amador County Council 1849, Knights of Columbus, spent a day earlier this month at the Silver Lake Chapel restoring the paint on much of the chapel, including the steeple. The weather does take a toll on the facility.

The Silver Lake Chapel is a non-denominational church located at the western end of Silver Lake next to Plasse Resort. It is in use from Fourth of July through Labor Day each year. Several services are provided each Sunday including the local churches in Amador County, and including St. Katharine Drexel...

“I have been to lots of VBS’s (vacation Bible schools), said one happy camper, “but this one is way the best.” When asked why, she replied, “because all the leaders are our age!” Another camper added, “No one tells us to ‘shush’ or ‘stop running. And the snacks are great!””

The “leaders our age” were five young adults from Mt. Cross Outdoor Ministries in Felton (near Santa Cruz): Team leader Whitney “Pennies” Holder, and counselors Kevin “Kauai” Schoby, Daniel”Samson” Sorrick, Shelby “Snaps” Harrah-Ferguson and Andrew “Einstein”...
