READ PART 1 FIRST...UNDERNEATH!

When the owner of Briarwood saw the list of "his" counselors and junior counselors participating in SGF he was astounded. He called it the Dream Team. I felt so honored that they feel drawn in by the SGF spirit too.

I told a story about a boy, Bob Snyderman, who was made to feel special as the boy who was invited to go up in an airplane and throw candy down on SGF way back. He told me he told his mom how special he felt doing that! I felt special telling the story.

Thanks to all of you who made this happen. You are all special people. I love you all.

Spencer

So it's been about a week since the Firefly Ceremony at the SGF Overnighter. Each Overnighter seems to take on its own theme. This year's theme seemed to be about making everyone feel special.

I spoke about making the kids feel special on Friday night with the counselors. That they did! It was my privilege to watch them interact with the kids, work so hard, giving each boy memories to hold onto for a lifetime.

It is my privilege to work with my new brothers of SGF who meet throughout the year to make it better. We're all in are 50's or 60's now, yet I think we would all agree we get a chance at some point during that weekend to feel 11 or 12. I know I got that feeling playing water polo on Saturday. My arms are still sore as hell!

It made me feel special to see my nephew Sammy, at only 8 years old fitting in with everyone, and not having a homesick minute at all...and winning the Best Bunky award for Bunk Apache. End of Part 1

Sorry but I haven't been on here in a while. I know you guys had the summer camp again and i'm sure it was very successful. Please keep me informed of any other function. I sure do miss those days which were a big part of me growing up.

Sorry Eric! Well...your donation certainly helps. Thank you so much. Come on over anytime during the weekend, and see what's going on. Our Indian Ceremonial is Saturday night at about 8:00 PM. That's cool to see. Our SGF counselors do a great job! Spencer

Haven't been here in a while, and I see all old posts are gone. I'm on the Gulf Coast of Florida now, so any get-togethers will be difficult. But if you find yourself down here, give a holler!

One of my fondest memories -is missing home on the Ridge and loving it on the Hill. Also winning "best Bunkie" White Glove contest, wake win at 2 am with Pizza Delivery and then winning the Color war and going up on Shoulders for the Falsbury Flop and learning to swim and winning the Marathon and building a bridge over the creek and an overnighter thinking i was going to die in a tent from an Ax murderer and going to the Mess Hall for food and the friends that were exceptional people- it was all about hearing the laughter!

To all SGFers,


I have the sad duty to inform you that my long time friend and SGFer, Dave Charles passed away last night in Fort Lauderdale. Florida from long standing multiple medical issues.


His son, Dan, and daughter, Meredith, asked me to let you know. Some of you may already have heard from Dave’s family.


A memorial service will be held sometime in April, presumably in Fort Lauderdale.


You can reach Dave’s son at Dan@DanCharles.org


Contributions can be made to the American Cancer Society.

I'm signing into the guestbook just to get my name back in there. Sorry to see that the hundreds of previous posts are all gone. I really enjoy reading them all every once in a while. I'm wondering if there's a way to let everyone know that they need to get back into the guestbook.

I was a camper through most of the 1960's. It was absolutely the best of times for me when I spent my two or three weeks at SGF. One year I was lucky enough to go to two encampments. There will never be anything like it again.

Regards to Marc and many thanks for keeping the site up and running.

I bumped into Mike Epstein and Steve "Little Dempsey" Ettinger the other night at the theater. Great to see them. SGFers are everywhere.

Allen "Doc" Harberg and I go back before our days at SGF. We were campmates at Kamp Kewanee in northern PA in the '40s. At SGF he once played "Hannah," but that's another story... If anyone wants to know it. A soft-spoken, but effective leader. One of the "Good Guys."

Uncle "Doc" Harberg was a counselor the same time as I in the 50's. My memory of him is that he was a gentlemen's gentleman. He was one sweet guy! May he rest in peace.

[i][/i]I recall Doc Harberg in around 1953...I was an 8 year old camper...he helped me overcome my homesickness, as it was my first time away from home. I recall him like it was yesterday..wonderful man.......I was also a counselor at SGF in ' 63 and '64. Regards to anyone who remembers me.

(7) Allen Harberg—Uncle Doc—died this week. He was my first counselor when I was both eight and nine in 1951 and 1952. He was little more than a kid himself, but he had so much presence that I always remembered him as a man.

R.I.P., Uncle Doc.

Mark, Thanks for passing on Alex Shay's complimentary message, even if it is an exaggeration.

Alex, Thanks, also. I hope you and your brothers, Joe and Seymour are doing well. Visit the SGF-Briarwood Overnighter in 2016. It will bring back memories of your days at the "real" SGF.
