Several people have asked me what I want them to write about. Of course I want them to write about memories that mean the most to them. Below I have put together a list, just some ideas. Please add to the list and help me with spelling!!
I also have an idea about how to credit and give a context to each author. My idea is to encourage people to tell stories about camp and downplay the "How I have been such a success after". But we also want to know about people. What do you think of this? At the end of each memory will be a short paragraph with the authors name, their camp affiliations and one sentence about what they are doing now?
Mine might be:
Tom Pears Camper/Councilor 55-67 Sailing.
After teaching high school for 12 years and spending 20 years in high tech, I am now hoping to return to teaching in the Boston area.
Jock Duncan's is:
Jock Duncan 48-56 Maroon Captain 1952
For 25 years I have loved having a second home in Rangeley Maine and being so close to camp.
David Jeffrey's is:
David Jeffrey: Camper at Kawanhee, 1950 (Panther Lodge), 1951 (Pine Tree Lodge) and 1955 (Green Barn).
After getting an M.Div. degree from Union Theological Seminary and an MBA from Columbia University my career has been as a financial analyst at a bank and, since 1979, at a small consulting firm that trains other financial professionals. Semi-retired now, I happily spend volunteer time with several non-profit organizations.
John Willis's is:
John Willis Camper/Councilor 58-68 Boating/Campcraft.
After Cornell and Vanderbilt [motto: "Harvard: the
Vanderbilt of the North"] and decades working in
schools, I'm in private practice doing assessments for
special needs students from my home in Peterborough NH
and teaching graduate students to do the same thing so
I can retire.
If I had been a great and famous man, I would have
owed it all to Kawanhee.
Just some suggestions to poke your memory.
