Recro Mikan

Where are the "old timers" who went to camp in the 50`s and 60`s -- Duke Miles the director, Jerry Spitzer,
Mrs Gutwillig (not sure of spelling), Luis the assistant cook, my good friend Louis Orenstein and so many others -- the socials on the basketball court, going over the hill etc

Hello Guys and Gals
I was a camper at Recro `62,`63,`64 and was a staff member `65,`66,`67 . I grew up in the Lillian Wald Houses and attended P.S.188 (the school where the camp buses left). I remember Stuie Nifoussi and I seem to recall that our mothers ran into each other at the bus stop and recognized each other from grade school on the lower east side. I also remember Mark Goodman,Bobby Sirota,Mike Cohen,Alan Arkan,and Gary Linton.See me on youtubeHowardNotowitz doing standup in Sarasota Florida.

Remembering the days of summer re 1957-1962. Steve wax singing by the camp fire. The light and the dark yes there was dark. Days of innocence for many but eye opening experience for others. Raise a glass to the the godesses of imagination Madge and Rona Feder. To the non leaders who made our lives safe the nurse, rose yavell and the laundry, Larry Ealy the cook. Bill Schoenfeld the entertainer. A big hello to doris Bedell and her son Louis. Following the lives of some as we became men and women, some who became pillars of society and a few who ended up in jail. To those who went in to their own niches like raising icelandic horses or singing their songs for the joy of it it like John Yavell and Clayton Culley. Summers of forest and lakes to the long and winding road through life. Raise a cup and embrace the life

I was a Recro camper from 1961 to 1963. My wife a Mikan camper in 1969. I visited camp yesterday for the first time in forever. It is now run by a church organization. The directors were on site and allowed us free access.

They tell me that next year a reunion is planned. If any of you know more information, please share it.
