PC&R 6th Annual Camp Pickett comes to a close

PC&R 6th Annual Camp  Pickett comes to a closePickett Care & Rehab's 6th Annual Camp Pickett program has officially come to a close. We celebrated the fun-filled summer with a banquet on Friday, August 3 at the First United Methodist Church. Each of the 26 campers and six volunteers were recognized and presented with a Camp Pickett shirt, water bottle, and certificate.
Volunteer Jada York received a $750 scholarship in recognition for her dedication this summer, which included a total of 254 hours.
We would like to thank First Baptist Church, First United Methodist Church, Pickett County Board of Education, and all others who had a hand in making our 2013 Camp Pickett program a success!
