On June 24, 2010 the IPPCA Top Guns will converge on Lincoln , Nebraska to rework an existing pond at the New Covenant Church at the fifth annual Ponditat™ for Humanity event hosted by the IPPCA. IPPCA Contractor members who attend this event, known as Top Guns, will add bog filtration along with a face lift and a waterfall. The existing pond was built by a local congregational member and business owner several years ago to greet the congregation as it enters the facilities for worship services. Work will also be done, time permitted, on another pond-less water feature on the premises that is leaking badly.
IPaWGS member (the hobbyist side of IPPCA), Danny Keelan, member of the New Covenant Church, nominated his church for the Ponditat For Humanity 2010 project. IPPCA President Rocke’ Huntington is also an IPaWGS member and assists Mr. Keelan from time to time on his personal pond. Both gentlemen were picked by Ponds USA as Midwest Pond Contractors in January, 2007. Rocke’ agrees that the New Covenant Church was a great choice for the 2010 Ponditat For Humanity recipient, as it is in dire need of filtration and a face lift.
The New Covenant Church helps the community with their many services such as Celebrate Recovery, Community Corrections Ministry, Royal Family Kid’s Camp, Step Out and Serve (SOS) and We Love Lincoln Outreach.
On Thursday, June 24 IPPCA Top Guns will begin the revitalization of the New Covenant Church pond and will finish up the project on Saturday, June 26. The IPPCA has once again negotiated a lower than normal room rate for all IPPCA Top Gun Attendees. Please contact IPPCA for the special code to book your room in the IPPCA block. All rooms must be booked by June 12, 2010 to receive the special discount.
