Yates made his way to his hometown of Charlotte, NC where CCDS classmate Howard and Stephanie Bissell hosted the Falling Creek Camp Movies & Reunion. It was an outstanding group with many new and returning FCC families, as well as staff and alumni who had the opportunity to connect.
Burns Bissell, Tribal Leader Andrew Maddox, Owen Bissell, and Rex Hallow were a huge help tonight by greeting families as they arrived. Nothing like some games before the show in the back yard. Many of the campers and boys who came to learn more about Falling Creek were joined in a big group photo by FCC staff who live in the area and dads who have attended Father/Son Weekends or were campers at FCC when they were young.
