prize. Should you make a donation for the calendar, we will list your business and raffle item on

by volunteers, we have very few expenses, with all of the profits benefiting students attending
Nature’s Classroom Outdoor Program in the spring. Located in Freedom, NH, Camp Cody

emotional learning, science and engineering skills, and adventure education. Proceeds will
offset the cost for each student and provide scholarships for those unable to pay the full cost.

estimated retail value to the following address no later than November 12, 2021:
