Hello all!! Here’s a great Corn Bread recipe that is simple to make and delicious addition to a hearty Fall meal. Please note, before you start making the recipe, that this style of making corn bread requires a cast iron skillet. I have not tested it in any other baking dish or pan. […]

Thought of the Day

By | September 14th, 2012|

Strats' Tower of  Strength COURAGE gives me the strength to put worthwhile ideas into action. COMPETENCE is the ability to perform honestly the job for which I am suited.

Last week over 45 families chose to spend their Labor Day Weekend here at Ockanickon for our bi-annual Family Camp. There was swimming, boating, challenge course, Gaga, and more. One of the less glamorous side notes to operating a facility like this is our use of water. While at camp guests take showers, brush their teeth, hydrate, and go to the bathroom. On the Ockanickon side of the property, we [...]
