Woodcutter's Ball 2019
Updated: Oct 21, 2019
Nearly 100 volunteers gathered for a wonderful Woodcutter's Ball on October 19, 2019. Once again, the Monroe Kiwanis Club sponsored our annual fall event which saw near record turnout for the fall work day. Projects completed ranged from felling trees, roofing the Jamboree Cabin, putting nearly final touches on the brand new Indian Point Trail, and most importantly, cutting wood for the winter season! These projects and a few more were completed due to the generosity of the Monroe Kiwanians, friends of Canyon Camp, and camp staff and alumni.
Lunch remarks included a sincere thank you and historical background of the Woodcutter's Ball by Monroe Kiwanian and co-camp director, Lee Binkley. He then asked co-camp director Dick Reynolds to share an update for the 2020 camping season which is forecasting to be yet again another exciting summer of camping at Canyon Camp. Monroe Kiwanian and Canyon Camp alumnus Ron Spielman then shared a brief overview of the Spirit of Canyon Camp Scholarships. Concluding remarks included a special thank you to Canyon Camp program director, Seth Kannarr for being one of more than 40 young alumni/friend donors to help raise over $7,000 for the most recent named scholarship. There was much to be thankful for and excited about for the future of Canyon Camp.
The weather was nearly perfect until the "heavy dew" began in the late afternoon. Even better than the weather though was the fellowship had by all in attendance. We appreciate all that you do to ensure the Spirit of Canyon Camp continues to strengthen for the many youth we serve each year! Please do mark your calendar for the annual spring work weekend to be held May 2, 2020.
