This photo depicts three of our youth on a canoe trip (or was it 2 youth and an adult - who can tell) as part of the very first Peace UMC Vacation Bible School held June 22 - 26, 1992, at Waterbridge Elementary School, located near the Southeast corner of John Young Parkway just off of Central Florida Parkway. 130 kids attended! Not bad for our inaugural VBS! Now for the toughie - can anyone identify the people in the canoe and what they were doing?

Long story short, this photo came from an article in the Hunter's Creek News, published in Vol 4, Issue No. 6, from July/August of 1992. It was a great article that showcased our young, growing church and it's new pastor, Rev. Bob Bushong.
