So I know I am a little bit late, but Happy New Year! I hope 2010 brings everyone much happiness and a great rest of the school year until CAMP!! Of course, it’s an exciting year for me as it’s the year of my marriage to Robin Hasson, camp’s Girls Head Counselor. Speaking of Robin, I spent 10-days down in Florida and while you would think it should be warm, it was COOOLLLLDDDD! Well, not as cold as Philly, but 40s overnight, and that’s just wrong.
While I was in Florida, we had tons of great meetings, appointments, meals, etc. First we saw Harold and Phyllis (camp’s baker and his wife) for brunch one morning. Harold took us to a deli, and they had the best omelets ever! Great choice Harold. Next, we saw 2010 first-time camper Leah Otner, her mom, and grandma. Since she is a first-time camper and she happened to be right nearby Robin’s house, I wanted her to meet with Robin before summer began. We had a GREAT meeting and Leah is so excited for camp. She is going to be such a wonderful addition to our theater program at camp, both on-stage and behind the scenes amongst other activities. So, welcome Leah to the Canadensis Family!
We also interview a new nurse at camp. No worries- Betty (our head nurse) will be back for her 5th summer at Canadensis as well as Bonnie and Mary. Anyway, Fredericka is going to be a great addition to our returning health center team and she is highly qualified! Robin and I also had dinner with Programming Director Roy Faden and his wife Lisa.
Finally, we met up with a company who helps us bid out our food and paper good products to different vendors. Alan and Carol (H &H Purchasing) have become good friends of ours and they hosted us at their house for a pool party (but it was too cold) and a great BBQ. We also tried to see Geo (last summer’s hockey director), but we couldn’t coordinate our schedules.
So, it was a busy busy trip to Florida, but very productive! Now, things are busy in the office preparing for the reunion and upcoming Sixers game night. If you need more info about either, email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take some time to watch the videos below. Once again, great job Jaycal. He will be at the reunion with his camera (duh) as will Will Armon and I, so you know what that means- CANADENSIS TODAY ON LOCATION!!
Check back tomorrow for my airline bumping story on my return flight to Philly (I know the suspense is really killing y’all!)
