Camel races top off VBS event

It’s not a common sport in this part of the world, but if you had been at Solon Center Wesleyan Church on June 18 you would have seen two good-natured guys racing each other on camels.

The church held their Vacation Bible School June 14 through 18 called “God’s Treehouse,” where “kids learned how might God is.”

According to Marcia Helton, they had a goal of raising $500 at VBS to be able to purchase Christmas presents for needy families. “If we raised the money, then our pastors would race the camels,” she explained.

The kids came through, and they raised $501 to purchase Christmas presents.

They ended the VBS on Friday night with a family night, which included an ice cream social and the camel race. Kids were also able to ride the camels.

Pastor Tom Holloway raced against stand-in Todd Huizen, since Pastor Doug DiBell was sick. The Post was not told who won the race. It might have been the camel. But overall, we think it was the families who gave, and the needy families who will benefit that are the real winners!
