We are sad to report that Frank Woods died on Tuesday, December 14. For many years, Frank served as the off-season manager of Three Mile Island. The Woods family has scheduled a memorial service and celebration of Frank's life for Saturday, January 22. There will be a memorial Mass at 10 am in the St. Dennis Church in Hanover, NH followed by a celebration/reception at the Norwich, VT Town Hall from 11:30 to 2pm. More details will follow in the next week or two.
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.

The proposed Sustainability Plan was created by our Island Educator, Jamie McMillan, during the summer of 2008, with input from campers, staff, and Committee members. It is a proposal for actions TMI might consider taking in order to become more environmentally sustainable. Some of the proposed actions are easy to implement, while others are more complex and would require discussion and consensus.
The Committee and Staff invite all TMIers to read this report, and welcome your feedback and suggestions. Please send comments to Heather Pembrook.
