Greetings from the Getaway.
Susette and I have just returned. The fun of course is still raging out there on the West River.
As you may have seen, the campus is quite beautiful, with river shore and a small bay filled with sailboats for scenary. The cabins are quite warm (good news for aging bones). Each cabin is named for a translation of Peace: Paz; Shalom; etc. There are eight cabins, four on each side of a large common area with chairs and couches. The trees sit in the open woods, some with views of water.
There is a dining hall with cafeteria style food (remember elementary school food?). There are also a retreat center hall with a fairly large common room and a second room filled with Camsco records and the silent auction and registration, etc
You'll hear lots about the music, so my favorites were Sylvia Herold a beautiful singer and guitarist, her the swing workshop, Joe Newberry and his banjo workshop.
More later of course. You were missed.
