The New Orleans show was hosted by Kathleen and Charlie Van Horn. A lot of folks came out to support Falling Creek. Jon Atkinson, who was a former camper and on paddling staff in 2006 and 2007 came as he moved to New Orleans a year ago pursuing a finance job. Justin Schmidt, whose son is coming back for his 3rd summer, also attended with his wife Mary. Justin was on the swim staff with Marisa and Jim in 1989 and is a native of New Orleans.
Thanks to Hal and Paula Mentz for hosting the Houston show. Their three sons are Falling Creek campers. Laffy Herring, a Houston native who was an FCC camper in the 70’s, brought his son who will be returning for his 2nd year. Yates enjoyed seeing everyone in Houston before heading to Dallas.
