To the Editor:
For years now, I have been publishing letters on this page to publicize the amazing accomplishments of all those committed volunteers who have turned Cedar Point Boy Scout Camp into a truly top-notch place where our youth can gather and learn the lessons of nature. I feel very fortunate to have been involved with this remarkable renovation of a camp I used and visited as a boy. And I have been both honored and blessed to have worked with all those exemplary volunteers and Boy Scout leaders who have done what was once probably though impossible.
For 10 years, I have been involved in the effort to renovate, expand and improve Camp Cedar Point. Through my letters to the editor, I have often invited all of you in our community to participate in the events at Camp Cedar Point and to come see the exciting developments at the camp. I have also, on numerous occasions, asked for your monetary contributions, which you have so generously provided. I am so very thankful for your generosity, and I hope you continue to give as generously as you have in the past.
However, I am writing now to notify you that I am stepping down from my role with the Friends of Camp Cedar Point and that I will not be the one to whom you should send your future contributions. As I hope to remain on the board for Camp Cedar Point, I am resigning from my role as president. It is with reluctance and a certain degree of sadness that I retire from this exciting venture, but the recent health problems of my wife and the challenges we must now face together dictate that I devote more time to her and to our home. I wish all the best to the leaders and volunteers of Camp Cedar Point - it has been a great honor and privilege for me to be associated with you.
