December Camp News

Welcome to the December CAW Blog, Now that December has arrived you can expect to soon receive your invitation to the Camp Reunion.  As always, it will be held on the day after Christmas (Dec. 26th) at Center Church House (60 Gold St, Hartford) from 2 to 4.  Adults from camp will be out on the sidewalk from 1:45 to 2:15 and from 4:00 until 4:15 to facilitate your getting into the building and then back into the right car.

This year, for our entertainment, we will have a fantastic magician, Jonathan Jacques, who will astound us with his amazing feats of magic.  There will also be games and dessert and most importantly a chance to reconnect with camp friends.  Hope you can come and be a part of the gathering.  Check out the link on the website to RSVP.  Please remember to send me the names and addresses of friends/relatives who may be interested in attending Asto Wamah in 2012 so they can be on the mailing list to receive the 2012 brochure in February.

Thought you might be interested in seeing the status of the lake in winter so I have included a few photos.  It is drained down 8 feet in the fall so that docks (like ours) don’t get destroyed by the ice as it moves and shifts.  It has also been proven to be an effective way to make sure that Columbia Lake maintains its clean and clear qualities.  We are definitely in favor of that!

At the end of November, the 2 composters were delivered for our new bathroom.  There are so many people who are helping to make this “green” bathroom a reality.  I am most grateful for Maggie and Jack Whitney’s dad who has been of immense help throughout this project.  I trust there will be a lot more to report at the beginning of January. Progress is pretty much up to Mother Nature at this point.

December is always a busy month, with so much to do.  I hope this month will be filled with all good things for you and your family.  What a perfect time of year to Remember the Other Fellow.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and a Holiday Season of Peace and Good Cheer,
