Funeral

I just got back from Grandpa Raymond’s funeral. There were quite a few people there, and his service to camp was mentioned several times, which was nice. CJ, who was my CIT director and one of the best men to work at camp in my experience, spoke (he was a relative of him). It was paticularly hard to see him break down while talking.
There were some other staff there from camp, as well as Dan and Nate Raymond, his grandchildren, who also worked at Abanki. Dan and I were fairly good friends while he worked here, and it was good to see him, abit briefly. He’s in the Army, and must have gotten an emergency leave to come. Hopefully they’ll all stop by and visit. I miss them.

My job at camp, since Sara asked, is thus: I’m a village director- I’m in charge of one of the four villages at camp, primarily with the staff, but also with the campers. It’s a different job than being a counselor, but just as interesting.

Sigh.

  1. “I’m a village director- I’m in charge of one of the four villages at camp, primarily with the staff, but also with the campers. It’s a different job than being a counselor, but just as interesting.” so.. your staff.. are they your village people?

  2. Not really – they really can’t sing very well. We finally adjusted our counselor staff, now that we’ve had a week with them, and we have set campers and counselors in each village. More on that later.

  3. Finished watching the first season of Green Wing & I’m totally hooked! I NEED MORE!!! Just wish I had a tv so I could see season two. Thanks for the tip on that one, too good to have missed!

  4. Sorry to hear about Grandpa Raymond … probably one of those persons that was an icon of the camp. Sounds like it was a nice moment for him.
