Lake Hickory Adventures

On September 8, 2018, Chad and Lisa Burel, owners of Lake Hickory Adventures, along with their friends from Mountain View Baptist Church treated 13 of our children along with the Southmountain Children and Family Services’ Recreation Department staff to a fun-filled day on Lake Hickory. Our kids had a blast riding in their speed boat; tubing and swimming in the lake; and having their faces painted. We also got to enjoy making crafts, decorating goody bags to take home, playing horseshoes, and blowing a bazillion bubbles! Another highlight of the day was singing with and listening to Luke Burel and his church worship team friends.
The Burls generously provided a fantastic lunch spread for all to enjoy! What a kind, joyful, and generous bunch are Chad, Lisa, Jesse, Luke, and their friends from Mountain View Baptist Church in Hickory! They continue to remind us of what community love and support look like in action. Southmountain is blessed to have them as friends!
