Camp Reunion Huge Success and Boy Was It Fun!

2017 Camp Eberhart Alumni Association Reunion:

The reunion was, again, a great success with approximately 30 alumni present from the age of 17 year to……..  Golf was played, work was completed and fun was had by all. One of the best memories, in my mind, was watching a group of alumni (no names) playing human fuse ball. What a sight!!

 Our annual meeting was held and your current board was retained. We have two new members, Liz Simeri and Jean Magrane, welcome. Updates on the YMCA, Camp Eberhart, and the capital campaign were presented to the group at Chapel.

 Thanks-you to all who came out. I would like to continue to grow this event and importantly grow it with our younger membership!

 Thanks,

 Chris
