Dear loyal blog readers — sorry it’s been a few days. The weekend was so very full! But we had a wonderful time.
The middle weekend has traditionally started a little early, with Friday’s canoe trip on the Tuscarawas River about 80 miles north of here. We lucked out with the weather when a passing storm only sent down one thunder-lightning combo before moving out of our way and letting us get on the river. With the water high, it was a fast and fun trip.
Then on Saturday, we had our annual feast and good bye to the two-week campers. One of them performed the very poignant “You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone” — which we all do, for sure.
For the first time in many years, we were able to have our post-feast campfire outside! For those of you who have been following past years, we’ve had some very clever inside setups involving fans and tissue paper, but it was very nice to be able to be outside and have a real fire.
On Sunday, we had our second week big groups concert, followed by the two-weekers’ musical. They did a wonderful job — it’s hard to believe how much they can accomplish in just 10 rehearsals!
Now everyone’s getting ready for our benefit concert in Yellow Springs next weekend. If you’re in the area, we hope you’ll come see us. We’re making so much good music and really enjoying each others’ company.
