Join Us for the 4th Annual OCF Southeast Family Reunion
ROTC Cadets from CRU Valor will join us this year!
This weekend is an opportunity to be encouraged by some great teaching, rekindle old friendships and build some new ones. Prepare to leave this weekend refreshed and with a renewed vision for serving Christ in the military society. The weekend starts Friday night at 6PM (EST) with a sandwich buffet at the Uchee Creek Lodge. Two speaker sessions are planned for Saturday morning followed by a group lunch and then an afternoon of fun enjoying all that Uchee Creek has to offer.
