A large group of families interested in learning more about Falling Creek came to Alex and Katie Howard’s home last night for the Augusta, GA camp “movies”. A big thanks goes to Daniel, Bailey and Charles who were a big help to their parents in graciously hosting the show. Current campers and alumni came to reunite and join the new families in seeing the brand new 2007 camp DVD. We were excited to see alumni Fred Sims. Fred was an FCC camper in the 70’s and brought his son Franklin who has been going to Falling Creek for two years.

Mark Shaefer, a Catawba Tribe counselor and Sailing Instructor this past summer came to share his experiences with the boys and their parents. Mark recently graduated from Mercer University and grew up Augusta. He is happy to report serious talks with three top notch pharmaceutical companies as he interviews for a sales position with one of them. We are also pleased that Charlie and Nan Shaefer, Mark’s parents, came to enthusiastically offer their support for Falling Creek.

I will be heading to Robert Adams home tonight in Columbia, SC for the Falling Creek “movies” to be shown at 6:30pm. Come see us! – Yates
