Dear Timber Tops Family,
Greetings from Greeley and from the top of the winding road.
We are writing to let you know that two of our camp leaders, David and Gayle Schreiber, will be moving on to new ventures in the new year. We wish them well and know that they will continue to be a part of the extended Camp Timber Tops family. David has accepted a position to serve as director of a day camp not far from their home in New Jersey. They leave with our heartfelt gratitude and warmest wishes for success and happiness.
The strength of our leadership continues at Timber Tops. Missy Ruddick will be starting her 10th year as director. This summer she will be joined by her husband Andy, whom she met at camp and whom has been an assistant director at our brother camp, Lake Owego, for many years. This will be Missy’s 23rd summer at Timber Tops. She learned from the best, having worked closely with her uncle and aunt, and (still-involved) Directors Emeritus, Ted and Sue Weinstein. Both Andy and Missy are full-time elementary school teachers and they have two children, Ashley and Nicholas.
Working alongside Missy and Andy, our daughter Anna Black Morin, a Timber Tops veteran, will be the full-time, year-round Timber Tops director. Anna is a 4th generation camp director. Like Missy, Anna grew up at Timber Tops and served as a head counselor there for many summers. The CTT swimming pool is even named after her! Anna was a middle school teacher at the Horace Mann School, an independent school in New York City, before she became a full-time camp director. She is married to Eric Morin, whom she also met at camp.
So we say good-bye with great affection and appreciation to Gayle and David but know that Timber Tops is in good hands as we get ready for our 50th anniversary summer celebration.
We extend our best wishes to you and your family for a happy, healthy new year. Thank you for being a part of the Camp Timber Tops family.
Mickey and Barbara Black
