Thanks to all that attended and participated in the first fall work weekend for camp of 2010! The weekend also included the Smith Park Annual meeting where we welcomed in two new board members, Amy M. and John W. They both have been involved with camp for years and are a welcome addition to the board. Congrats to Amy and John! As it was a work weekend, we managed to get some work done too! This included some painting of cabin doorways as well as trim on the Beacon. The big project however for the weekend was pulling in the docks which is always an adventure! Anchors were pulled and slowly but surely all docks made it to the shore. With some maneuvering, the log was brought in as well. We even managed to get some work done on Sunday with cleaning up and moving and storing many kitchen items in the walk-in cooler (to protect them from the animals seeking a home for the winter). Thanks again to all that pitched in! Here's a few pics from the weekend.
Work getting done-
A different kind of Tug-A-War? No- just bringing in the log for the winter.

Always time for fun!

Of course we're spelling out YMCA!
More spelling- This time it's ? (put your guesses in the comments!)
