-Heather suggested to Dawn that the group picture this year be done on Saturday instead of at the closing on Sunday. Many people either don’t show up on Sunday or leave early on Sunday to get ready for the weekly grind. Several others voiced that this was a good idea.

-Peggy mentioned a ‘party’ for the hosts, Ken offered more information that it was a sort of pool party that evolved into the hosts and workers of the campground and all members of the friends group are invited to the pool party of Friday the 9th at 6-8 pm. Others emphasized to Peggy that the group recognizes the campground hosts every year around September.
