  • Campers repair 3 area homes

    John Dixon’s Van Wyck home has been in his family for years, but the home he grew up in had fallen into disrepair.
    Without help, Dixon wouldn’t have been able to fix the place up, he said, but thanks to the Catawba Salkehatchie Camp, his home was transformed last week.
    A group of 10 volunteers showed up at Dixon’s house June 17 to start the repairs, which included painting, installing insulation and replacing all the windows of the house.
