"I have volunteered the past two years at Camp Chula Vista in Pell City, AL. Camp Chula Vista is the Church of God camp in Alabama. My grandfather Wilburn Williams owns Branchwood Farms in Holly Pond, AL. There we raise Tennessee Walking Horses. Every summer we take about 10 horses to the camp for all the campers to ride. We start the first week in June and end the last week. The campers range from 6-18 years old. I was raised around these beautiful animals, and I have been so blessed to have had the opportunity to e around them, that I want others to know what it is to have one even for just a day."
