Class News: Travel Stories and Pictures by Camilla Ramborger

We traveled KY, OHIO, MICHIGAN, WISCONSIN, MINNESOTA, IOWA, ILLINOIS, & INDIANA in our RV for a month.  We stayed in Amana, Iowa for National Campvention of the Deaf for a week.  423 campers/visitors were registered . The Amana Colony has 7 different villages and I really love Amana, a very cute village.   Very nice atmosphere and weather.  Had a wonderful journey.
