Donnie and Yates have returned from several weeks on the road to numerous cities in three different states. "It is always a treat to see the current campers and learn of their school, sports and special activity news" said Yates.
Donnie and Yates were not only introduced to many new families interested in Falling Creek, but also reconnected with several alumni. John Barganier, a former camper in the early 80’s, attended Montgomery’s movies with his son Jack (camper in ‘05) and his family. Dusty Davis, a counselor and previous Associate Director for FCC in the 80’s came to see us in Birmingham with his three children, Chase, Honey, and Cole.
David Malone, a camper in the 80’s, joined us in Birmingham and shared stories from his years at FCC. Clay Milling (camper ?78 ? ?81 and counselor 85, 86 & 89), Newton Quantz (counselor in the 80’s), and Frank Jackson (camper/CIT ‘78-’85 and counselor 86-89) supported a large group of interested families in Atlanta. Alexander Thomas, a camper from 01 – 06 and member of the FCC Honor Council, provided some inspirational words to the younger boys in Atlanta who are considering coming to Falling Creek.
Fred Sims, a camper in the early 70’s attended the Augusta movies with his son Franklin , a camper in ‘05. Cindy Ross, a nurse from this past summer, is living in the Augusta area and came by to say hello and support the Augusta crowd. Charlotte welcomed Jess Belcher and Jimmy Robinson, both campers/CIT’s in the 80’s and counselor’s in the 90’s, and Stephen Pharr, a camper/CIT ’78-86.
Introducing Falling Creek to new families and providing the venue to see camp friends and alumni could not be accomplished without the assistance from our family representatives. We want to sincerely thank all of the family representatives for their dedication and continued support of Falling Creek.
Donnie, Chris and Yates look forward to an active upcoming tour to many cities and colleges across the country in the next 6 months. They will be traveling throughout the month of November and early December and hope that you will come join them when they are in your area.
