Funny how people find your words on the Net minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and even years after you write them. An old friend from Kittatinny, Dick Berk [a few years my senior], has memories that cross, weave, and blend into my own (reprinted with permission):
I read the KLC from 11/06 and a few names jumped out. Since you mentioned Trout on the waterfront , it was Bob Smith (Old Joe Mulyavah) when I was there. Craig Pearson was one of the instigators of the 1999 reunion. I, too, am waiting for the next reunion but it takes someone on the East coast to do it since most of the people are there. According to Carole (Hoffman) Biron and George Biron, who were the area sponsors, getting a place for a reasonable amount of money as well as the required insurance and guarantees was extremely difficult.
Do you recall the Lock Haven counselors, all athletic and religious? Budd Beringer passed away in 2002 and George Dintamin is a retired professor, having been involved in speed training (he was a track, baseball, and football star at Lock Haven) and has a number of books to his credit. Chuck Bretzin was a catcher and also fit the same mold.
In 1960 a number of us were in Atlantic City and went out to dinner with a picture commemorating the event – Lenny Fairorth(?), Lew Gordon, John Harrison, Steve Rotman, myself and my brother Bob, and Jerry Blatt. It was before the big bucks hit town and walking the boards was the event at night.
Keep the news coming. Hopefully people will return to the Kittatinny Camp site on Google to continue the dialogue.
