Dear Ruskoka Camp Volunteers,
Thank you to Victor, Kira, Nika, Dennis, George, Misha, Alesha, Nastya, Masha, Marina, Roma, Alik, Maxine, Andrew, Sophia, Natasha and Max. The first work weekend of 2012 was enjoyable and productive. All of the buildings were opened and cleaned, the water systems turned on, and lots of raking and clearing branches. We met with contractors, got all of the maintenance equipment working and fixed the recently acquired second ATV, burned a mountain of brush, cleaned up the pit near the fire, cleaned the camp office and the house, and prepared delicious meals. A superb dinner feast was prepared to mark Maxine’s birthday on Saturday, followed by cake and mud facials for all! A couple brave counselors even went for a swim! A great start to the 2012 camp season.
For the next work weekend, we expect a good turnout of counselors, so please let me know in advance if and when you plan to arrive.
Reply to let me know you are coming so we can plan the food and accommodations. Indoor accommodations for everyone.
