Steve Ewert of the PCCC outlined their plans for developments inside the 320-acre Center, located on the back side of the State Park. They intend to spread out the camp, add an 80-person youth camp in Strawberry Flats, replace some galvanized iron Quonset huts with cabins, and build a gymnasium. The changes would in fact reduce the number of approved beds from the 500 in their most recent master plan (1969) to 400. During 1996, the PCCC hosted 9000 overnight guests. Mr. Ewert invited the PMPO board to visit and the PMPO will do so on July 26.
Annual meeting May 24, 1997; tour of Christian Conference Center July 26.
The meeting was adjourned at 11:54.
Michael E. Pique, Secretary.
