Volunteers in Action – 2016

NOMADS return to Dooly

Twice each year RVs roll into Dooly Campground and a team of NOMADS (Nomads On a Mission Active in Divine Service) works for three weeks on a variety of building projects. Their labor is free, and many of them learn on the job.

The latest team to visit has just completed the installation of dry wall to create several individual bathrooms in two dormitories that are used by campers. Previously, the bathrooms were communal with showers, sinks and toilets in one large room.


Jim Montstream and Bill Roberts install drywall in one of the bathrooms.

Now, however, they will be more private, but no mirrors will be installed in these individual bathrooms, so hair drying, make-up application, etc

Jim Bixler and his wife.

Jim Bixler served as leader of the most recent NOMADS team to work at Dooly Campground. Here he and his wife, Chic are finishing up drywall work in one of the dormitories.

Jim Bixler who led the team says he and his wife, Chic who have a home in Indiana joined the NOMADS in 2004. This is their first stop in Dooly County, but they have worked on more than 20 projects throughout the U. S. since they began.

NOMADS started as a ministry of the United Methodist Church when several retirees got bored and asked their church if there wasnt something more constructive they could do with their time. Now they are involved in new construction, remodeling and repairs for churches, childrens homes, camps, colleges, outreach missions and disaster rebuilding primarily in the southern U.S. during the winter months and other parts of the country the remainder of the year.

Team members perform general maintenance, cleaning, painting, electrical work, drywall installation, sewing and flooring work. With Gods help,their website says, NOMADS pretty much do it all.

This gives us something useful to do in our retirement,adds Bixler. As an added bonus, they get to see the country and make lots of friends.

It sure beats going to Florida and playing shuffleboard or cards all day,says Bill Roberts whose home is in New York.

The seven-person team which also includes Jim and Barbara Montstream of Connecticut and Hank and Karen Cheney of Vermont worked on a job in Florida before coming to Dooly. When they left, they headed to Mississippi where they are helping to restore a historic black Methodist church that will be utilized as a neighborhood center for tutoring and other activities for young people.

This is our second year working on the Mississippi project,Bixler says. We enjoy what we do. It gives us a purpose.

Karen Cheney

Karen Cheney and her husband, Hank traveled from Vermont to work at Dooly.


Barbara Montstream says she really likes coming to Dooly. This is her second trip.

As a member of the Dooly board of trustees, Bert Gregory coordinates the work at the campground. Chic Bixler says, Bert tells us things that need doing, and sometimes, we find things that he had not thought about. That means we have lots of unexpected little jobs to come up.

NOMADS brings people from all walks of life together, according to Mrs. Bixler. Team members dont necessarily have to be retired, but many are. Often, we have an opportunity to tell people who we are and what we do and recruit new members in the process.

While the projects on which NOMADS work are connected to the United Methodist Church, members from any faith are welcome to join. The main stipulation is that they have an RV and that they are at least 18 years of age.

Anyone who is interested in joining the nationwide organization is encouraged to visit the website to learn more.

That website also provides an opportunity for making donations to the 501(c)(3) group which means all gifts are tax deductible. More than 84% of the organizations budget is spent in direct support of its projects.
