Marisa and the girls and I traveled to Atlanta, GA on Sunday, October 29 where the Millings hosted two camp “movie” shows at 4:30pm and 6:30pm in their home. It was an outstanding opportunity to meet new families and catch up with alumni and current campers.

(l to r) front row: Jack, Mary, Yates Pharr, Will & Fred Conklin; back row: Clay Milling, Clay & Collins.

Alumni who attended included Clay Milling, who was a Camper and Counselor at Falling Creek in the 70’s and 80’s. In fact, Clay and I were on the Canoeing staff together. Fred Conklin was a Camper and C.I.T. with me in the 80’s. Both dads are very pleased that their sons are now getting a chance to have their own experience as a part of the Falling Creek Camp community.

Come join us at the Falling Creek “Movies” in your area soon. I will be in Greenville, SC on Thursday, November 2 at 6pm. Stephen and Eliza Gray will be hosting the camp movies at their home. Marisa and the girls and I will be in Charlotte on Sunday, November 5 at 4pm at the O’Brien’s home. At literally the same day and time, Chris will be traveling to New York City on that Sunday, November 5 to show movies at the Brumback’s home at 3:30pm. Then he will be in Greenwich, CT on Monday, November 6 at 6:30pm at The Saer’s home.

We are also excited about several opportunities to catch up with FCC staff and have the opportunity to meet new folks. Chris will be catching up with FCC staff while in New York. He and Phil will be on the NC State Campus on Wednesday, November 8 at 7pm in Carmichael Gym, Room 2036 to meet potential new summer 2007 staff. They will both travel to Winthrop University on Thursday, November 9 to meet new staff at an event on campus at 12:30pm. If you are interested in being a part of the FCC Community this summer and want to catch up with Chris and Phil, please contact them by calling 828-692-0262 or send them an e-mail.

We are looking forward to seeing you on the road!
