Yates was excited to visit Weston & Rose Newton’s home in Bluffton, SC on Wednesday, September 29.
Weston is a Falling Creek alumnus and was joined by Lawson Lowrey, also a prior camper at FCC. Both the Newton’s and Lowrey’s sons are current campers, Lawson’s son coming back for his 5th summer in 2011.
They were joined by a large group of new families all who enjoyed watching the new camp movie that was just updated and has about 50% new footage in it this season.
Thanks to the Newton family for their wonderful hospitality.
Yates traveled to Charleston, SC on Thursday, September 30, for the Falling Creek Camp Reunion and to show the Falling Creek Movies at Jill and Billy Ford’s home.
It was a beautiful evening and the boys played ball together and ate pizza in the back yard while the parents enjoyed each others company and shared stories about camp. They all had a treat with being able to watch the new movie outside as it was projected onto a screen. Cool!
There were many new families who came to learn more about Falling Creek Camp. The current FCC campers who attended helped Yates to answer their good questions.
Yates was also pleased to be able to reconnect with Gray Tiller, who was a camper at Falling Creek when Yates was a counselor.
Gray was a big paddler and they both enjoyed many trips together for several summers. Gray later became a counselor at FCC and a paddling instructor. He is especially happy that his son is now going to be able to experience Falling Creek.
