This week, I wanted to pass along something from my Chaplain. Sandy Cove is a vacation spot offering a free stay for veterans of OIF/ OEF and their families. Fully paid for through some generous donations. See the full story below:
Great opportunity for families to rest and reconnect after a deployment. More details go to www.sandycove.org/oasis.
Sandy Cove is serenely situated halfway between Baltimore and Philadelphia near the town of North East, Maryland, just 10 minutes south of I-95, and 1 hour south of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, via Route 272.
Any service man or woman in uniform, including those in the Reserve and National Guard, returning home from deployment in support of OIF, OEF or Operation New Dawn can come to Sandy Cove with their immediate family for FREE! This includes comfortable accommodations in the Chesapeake Lodge or Pioneer Campground cabins, all meals, recreation and program if scheduled. Five nights for a family of four would normally cost up to $2980, but through generous donations, Sandy Cove is able to offer this as a FREE gift to military families to help you bond together and relax in a Christian atmosphere. One FREE visit per family.
Operation Oasis is 100% funded by those who appreciate the protection and freedoms our military provides. Because you care and wish to join us in saying to our brave men and women in uniform, “Thank You and Welcome Home!” we are able to say “Yes” to those who wish to come to Sandy Cove.
