TheZone Girls Division was honored with a visit from Town Supervisor Tony van Glad. The girls wowed the supervisor with an impressive display of the camp song, showing off their camp spirit.
Rabbi Avraham Krawiec, camp director, presented Tony with a donation of $7,500 in recognition of services that the town provides our camp, such as fire and emergency services. He then introduced Tony, amid enthusiastic cheers of “Tony! Tony!” from the girls.
Tony acknowledged the generous donation and said he was happy to have such a great camp in his town. He assured the campers that he wouldn’t do anything boring with this donation, like building roads. The dining room exploded with cheers of “amusement park! amusement park!” Tony laughed and said a park might just be in the plans.
The presentation was a true Kiddush Hashem, showing the local populace what a special camp lies in their midst.
