Junior Auxiliary of Searcy Gets Artistic with the Sunshine School at Camp Wyldewood



The Junior Auxiliary of Searcy (JA) pitched in with  Sunshine School Summer Camp by assisting the students with painting  serving platters, bowls, saucers and cups.

Each year the Sunshine School holds a three-day summer  camp at Searcy’s Camp Wyldewood, located at 155 Riverside Park Road  and each year JA shows support for the school by participating in the  camp.

“We are so honored to be able to come out to Camp  Wyldewood for the Sunshine School’s summer camp.  It’s a fun  way to wrap up the summer and we always feel blessed for having been  a part of the camp in a small way,” said JA Sunshine School Chairperson  Kristi Valencia.
