Grimes Parker Camp Invictus 2010
Cooleemee Elementary's 1st Annual Basketball Camp
by Karen Chandler Smith
A small town had their first annual basketball camp due to a a person's desire to help the kids by creating an awareness of recreation and to nurture their self esteem and athletic abilities. This person, Steve Fleming, grew up in Cooleemee and was shocked to see the condition of the town when he came home for Christmas in 2009. He met with his childhood mentor, Grimes Parker, and they put on a camp to help out the kids and to let them know someone cared. The camp was an amazing event and the kids will treasure this opportunity for a lifetime.
Bringing out the beauty in every image is my goal and those images may be of children, models, families, engaged couples, landscapes or travel. My studio is under construction in Cooleemee, North Carolina. I bought an old cotton mill home and the updating will make a unique studio. I have created a blog: cooleemeegirl.wordpress.com, so those interested can follow my progress. If you love bead board and beautiful photos, you will want to visit my website often.
