Camp Sundown Hosts October Harvest Moon Camp
The long Columbus Day weekend provided the perfect time for a final session of Camp Sundown for 2014. Campers enjoyed the harvest season with pumpkin carving, costume creating and Halloween party, crafts and a lot of fun. We had a nice visit with Wendy Guntert and her beautiful dogs and a last night campfire featuring Billy Flash, his sons and our good friend Zach Nayer wrapped up the camp in fun style. Special thanks to our volunteers Laura, Susan, Matt, Shannon and Chris!
The Pawling Rotary Club held a "chocolate festival" fundraiser on November 15, 2014. The festival featured the most delicious assortment of chocolates, cakes and other sweets.
