A small group of Southern Rensselaer County club members joined a cadre of Rotarians from the Lansingburgh/Troy and Hudson Shores clubs along with Assistant District Governor Bob Van Alstine to visit the Rotary Scout Reservation — a/k/a/ Camp Rotary — in Averill Park on Thursday evening.
(Unfortunately, we had eight dropouts from the original sign-up list.)
The Rotarians joined 168 campers plus several dozen staffers for a tasty chicken dinner in the mess hall, followed by the daily sunset flag-lowering ceremony. Those hardy enough to handle the hilly terrain then took a tour of the sprawling facilities.
My thanks to Bob and Karen Van Alstine, Ray and Lois Hannan, Dick Drumm, Pat Bailey and April Dowd for joining me in representing the club at this site, which the original Troy Rotary Club created 92 years ago.
Here are some scenes April captured of the evening:
