Chuck Winter and Collin Curfman from the Grace Brethren Church in Sunnyside, Washington, have been doing a little historical research on Camp Clear Lake, the Grace Brethren camp sponsored by the churches in the northwest US.
This photo of Earl Reed (left) and Robert Culver (right) was taken at Camp Clear Lake sometime in the early 1940s–perhaps 1944 or 1946, according to Dr. Culver’s memory. Earl Reed was pastor of the Sunnyside church from 1934-46. The chapel at camp is named the Earl Reed Memorial Chapel.
Culver, 92, who will be preaching at the Harrah, Washington, Grace Brethren Church this Sunday, is holding a hammer in his right hand. Culver says, “I had driven up to Clear Lake from Harrah/Wapato to help Rev. Reed nail cedar shingles on the roof of the first building. Those shingles are still there beneath new roofing.”
