Opening weekend, with enthusiastic volunteers braving the heat wave to replace the shingles on Rock Ledge 1 and 3, is behind us, Croo Week is already a few days old as I write this, and Week 1 will start in a few days. I just received my copy of the summer newsletter in the mail (available here in PDF format). An important item mentioned there is that the island will no longer have an epi-pen on hand for the use of campers, because of a change in New Hampshire law. If you need one, make sure to bring it with you, and tell us about it.
Three Mile Island Camp is a family-oriented facility of the Appalachian Mountain Club. Located on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith, NH, Three Mile Island welcomes AMC members and the general public to summer and fall vacation opportunities. Situated on an island of 43 rocky woodland acres, this shorefront camp offers families a delightful recreational experience in the heart of New Hampshire's lake district. Exploration of the woods, swimming, boating, and conservation programs are just a sampling of the pleasures this island getaway offers. Meals are served family style in a warm, social atmosphere. Three Mile Island camp is open for nine summer weeks and four fall weekends.
This year's joke was on our home page for about two weeks. If you missed it, we saved it here. Thanks to Don Perley for supplying this year's prank.
The TMI Committee has developed criteria and an application for those who wish to host a group on Three Mile Island during the off season.
Walter Lind, long time Week 3 camper, passed away at home on September 21 after a too short, relentless battle with pancreatic cancer. His service was held September 28 at the First Church of Belmont, Unitarian Universalist, where he and his wife Kathy were long-time members. Thanks so much for the large outpouring of support from his many Three Mile friends. Walter will be fondly remembered for his grace and good humor, his daily swim around the island, his quick wit and wacky skits, and for his commitment to strong friendships that he shared with so many. The family requests that donations in lieu of flowers be made to their church, 404 Concord Ave, Belmont, MA 02478.
