On Sunday, November 1, Yates traveled to Montgomery to show the camp movies at David and Leslie Little’s home. Their sons, Mason and Tucker, have been going to FCC for several years.
Joining the group of boys who came to reconnect and learn more about Falling Creek were alumni, Brooke Lawson and Walton Vaughan. Both were campers in the 70’s and 80’s. What a thrill it is for their sons to now have the chance to go to FCC like they did.
Yates met up with a large group in Jacksonville on Tuesday at Cindy and John Glover’s home. Their boys, Patrick and Christian are veteran FCC campers.
In a combination of inspiration from Patrick’s great uncle, a famous artisan blacksmith, and his experiences blacksmithing at Falling Creek, Patrick has created his own shop at his home and is busy working on projects. He hopes to launch a website soon. Congratulations Patrick.
The next stop was on Wednesday, where Yates visited Ormond Beach. Fred Share, whose three oldest boys went to Falling Creek in the early 2000s, is happy that his youngest son, Kevin and several of his friends will be going this summer for their first time.
Yates then drove up to Columbia on Thursday, where Robert and Shana Adams hosted the Falling Creek movies. Young Robert and Joel will be returning for another summer at FCC.
Robert was a camper at Camp Deerwood with Frank Tindall and also served as program director there for a few summers.
Billy Cantey, an FCC camper in the 80’s was happy to introduce his family to everyone who attended. His oldest son will be going to Falling Creek for his first time this summer.
Will Adams (no relation), who was a top Falling Creek counselor this summer, took time out of his busy college schedule to come visit. Will is a senior at the University of South Carolina, and congratulations are in order as he recently announced that his engagement with plans set for June.
