(Wife of the late Rev. Henry Sapp)
I have many memories of the Hortense Camp Meeting. It was the first camp I had ever been to, and since my husband's grandfather got it started, it holds a special place in my heart. I went to camp meeting in 19434 for the first time, and it was a great experience. I had not been raised in a Christian home, so to me, camp meeting was wonderful.
We ate lunch in the dining hall, or kitchen, which was downstairs in the two-story building.
Years later, Henry was working, so all five of our children and I camped in one of the first cabins that Henry's grandfather helped to build. We enjoyed that very much.
I still enjoy camp meeting and I come as often as I can.
