http://www.kjonline.com/community/152233075.html Great photo of Rev. Walter Brown (a long-time friend of Mechuwana) at the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Randolph UMC. The church was rebuilt in 1961 after a fire.
We are sad to announce the passing of Anita Bailey, wife of Ray Bailey, camp's long-time maintenance director. Anita was also the grandmother of campers Ian and Steve-o Grima. Read the full obituary, including the very cool story about how Anita and Ray met, here http://obituaries.kjonline.com/obituaries/mainetoday-kennebecjournal/obituary.aspx?n=anita-m-bailey&pid=157557328. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Ray and Anita Bailey scholarship fund at Mechuwana or to Aldersgate UMC. Both addresses are at the end of the obituary. Anita, you will be missed...you were a very special part of camp's family.
Today's Kennebec Journal had an op-ed about sending underprivileged children to summer camp. Mechuwana was mentioned as being one of those camps where children will go as a result of local scholarships. Have you thought about sponsoring a child to come to Mechuwana for a week this summer? If you would like to do that, please call the camp office at 207.377.2924 or email camp at firstname.lastname@example.org. Help a child make a lifetime of memories by coming to camp for a week this summer.
