It's three posts for the price of one! The first part of this post is Part Two of the conversation with Skip Falk and it's ready to view, this time on YouTube. In this edition, Skip talks about the hurricane that hit Segowea in 1976, resident camping for kids and reflects on another Camp director, Beth Koloski Hodos (now on the Smith Park Board). It's about 12 minutes in length and takes a little time to download, so please be patient! The link for that is:
The second part of this post is it's just a couple days before the Wa Wa Leadership Rally coming up on Saturday! It will take place in Albany at the YMCA Administrative Office on New Karner Road starting at noontime. Hope you can make it! For further details, please see the previous post in the blog.
And the final part is to report on the progress that has been taking place in the reconstruction of the Property Director's House. Norm and Dianne have been really busy! This past weekend, we were able to gradually lower the roof to actually become the second floor and hope to begin shortly on building the new roof. It's taking quite a bit of time and effort and will be well worth it when complete! Here's just a few pictures to see the progress.

I had a conversation recently with former Camp Director Dave "Skip" Falk. During this talk, Skip reminisced about his time at camp, how he got his start there, right up to visiting this past summer. This blog post is Part One of Two containing excerpts of that conversation and pictures of old and more recent. Unfortunately the file size is too large for this blog, but you can hear it and see it by going to my site-
