We received word of the home-going of Gary Collett. Gary was instrumental in helping Warm Beach Camp start a horse program in the early years of the Camp. Back then, the horse program consisted of three horses, and Gary and his co-workers would spend the summer walking in front and behind that string of three horses, giving trail rides all over the grounds. Later, he continued to help out from time to time, shoeing horses and helping with their care. Gary passed away on February 14, 2008, and was laid to rest in Hood River, Oregon.
Patrick Neill, on kitchen staff from ‘97 to ’01, and wife, Katharine, are delighted with the arrival of their third child, Eliza Caroline, born March 14, 2008. She joins older sister, Zoe, age four, and brother Jamin, age two. The Neills live in Lynnwood, Washington. This is another grandchild for Joanie Yonker, Executive Assistant and her husband Mike. That brings the total to eight grandchildren!
