Kamp Kiwani reunion ~ faces!

Anne (Kanga), Cedar and me.
Cedar is well-loved by the hundreds of girls and staff who have spent summers at Kiwani.
Cedar directed camp and waterfront for many years.
Now a retired teacher, Cedar loves camp and is dear to our hearts!

Group photo!
It was fun to gather by "era" and snap some photos.
Girls of the 70's!

This is Pat. She has a huge heart for Kamp Kiwani
and its girls. "Always about the girls!" she told us.
Pat is special to my sister and me because she
knew our mother and worked with her as a Girl Scout volunteer.
It was precious to hear her memories of Mom.

Oh, Donut! I can't begin to express how special it was to
see you standing at the trading post, hug and then catch up on
each other's lives. Thirty-five years is a lot of catching up.
You're amazing, you're like a sister; love you!

And dear sis, thanks for pushing me to meet you at Kiwani.
I loved it ... and love you!

Day is done, gone the sun,
from the lake, from the hill, from the sky.
All is well, safely rest. God is nigh.

The closing fire always made me cry. When I take the kids camping we always sing green trees and taps. I send them to bed and sit in front of the fire thinking of those long ago summers at Kiwani.
