Letter: Green Mountain camp gives thanks

Posted

Editor of the Reformer:

Although many people aren't yet thinking about summer plans, we have been very busy at Green Mountail Camp, preparing for our best summer yet! One of the many tasks we are focusing on now, even before the mud is gone, is raising funds to ensure that this unique camp can continue to thrive. Toward that end, several local businesses and organizations have partnered with us as we gear up for our centennial next year ... celebrating 100 years of memories.

We are most grateful to the Dummerston Congregational Church who hosted a family concert on March 12 featuring folk singers Putnam Smith and Ashley Storrow and a bake sale that helped GMC in their fundraising efforts. They also sponsor scholarships so more girls, regardless of family circumstances, get to experience a week of carefree childhood fun!

Just a few days later, the Sunrise Rotary was generous enough to name GMC as the recipient of their fun-tastic Trivia Night proceeds and it turned out to be a very fun (and delicious) evening. Over 75 people showed up March 14, in spite of the rain and wintry mix weather and had a wonderful time. Entera Catering provided a scrumptious meal and the winners of the 50-50 raffle and the evening's top trivia prize also donated their winnings to the camp.

These events and the generosity of so many friends of GMC, both individuals and businesses, remind us how fortunate we are to live in a community that is so supportive of all the good works done by the many non-profits in our area!

Green Mountain Camp opens June 20 and offers both day camp and overnight options for girls ages 5 to 13 but we could not do it without the support of this amazing community — thank you to all who help make another season possible!

Billie Slade Executive Director Green Mountain Camp, March 20
