AOI and Redcloud’s 25th Year Co-Op Celebration

Posted by on Sep 16, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

Happy anniversary!!

August marked AOI’s 25th year of doing Family Mountain Adventures at Camp Redcloud. A lot of people think that AOI owns or runs Redcloud, but we are totally separate ministries. We have just had a good and long association with Redcloud.

To help celebrate the 25th anniversary camp in cooperation with Redcloud, our staff surprised Mary Jo & I by having Redcloud bake a special anniversary cake and then, at the variety show, sang a song with special lyrics they wrote. The tune of the song was from a country western style song that Buddy Davis sings called “I Don’t Believe in Evolution.” During the song, they held up caricatures drawn by our volunteer Chelleston of Mary Jo & I.

It was a fun time, and we thank our staff and volunteers, and the cake bakers/decorators who took a lot of time putting it all together. Here are the lyrics and some photos of the celebration.


A special song for Dave and Mary Jo...

I believe that God above created Redcloud too,

So praise His name for Mary Jo,

Give credit for Dave too!

I don’t believe in Evolution,I know AOI is true!

Verse 1:

I like to canoe out in the pond

And swing down from a pole

Climbing biking, hiking (pause)

Is all I like to do.

Redcloud pro-vides everything

In six days we are through

So the Texas heat is just a dud

But Red cloud’s just for you (Chorus)

Verse 2

Dave and Mary Jo in Art

Fly fishing from the pond,

But Mary Jo would rather hike

To the chapel and beyond.

Rich will teach deep into the night,

For even one or two

But Mr. Dave is the only Nut…

That I’m going to listen to! (Chorus)(Chorus)

Dave Nutting
