GRP Is On the Road!

By Sandy Schenck

Green River Road Show is making its way around the Southeast for reunions and open houses.  In September, Mason and Allison Tate hosted a home show in Orlando, Florida.  We had fun seeing Jack and Luke Hudson.  We had a great turn out and hope to see some of the wonderful people we met this summer!

Last weekend Case and Jane were in the Triangle area of North Carolina for two reunions and open houses in Chapel Hill and Raleigh. The Chapel Hill Reunion at The Loop Pizza brought lots of familiar camper and staff faces.  Lizzie, Caitlin, Hugh, and Amelia came out between classes to visit with Annie Wilcosky, Mady Luce, Kate Brack, Leah Hurwitz, Josh Leffler, Sam Viemont, Sabrina Sholeman, and Lily and Rebecca Posner-Hess.  On Friday night, we headed to Mellow Mushroom where Zac Wilson, Beñat Quartararo, Riley and Owen Wild, Nikki Maiorano, Ethan Goulian, Sarah and Will Appleyard, Rachel Rohde, and Savannah Lynn came to share stories from camp and even sing a few songs!  Thank you for everyone who came out; we love catching up with the GRP campers and staff outside of camp!

Coming up the week of October 25-27, Anne, Missy, Case, Jane, Moose, Bear, and Irie will be in Charleston for a few open houses and a reunion!  On Tuesday October 25 there are two events :  A camp open house at Buist Academy co-hosted by camper Emma Wallace and her mom, Martha, in Miss Hearn’s fifth grade classroom from 3 to 4PM.  Come by Hungry Monk Music, where Hazel Ketchum (the music teacher at The Cooper School) will co-host an open house from 4 to 7PM.  Hawk Hurst will be there to tell a story and play some music!  On Thursday, October 27, come to our Open House and Reunion at East Bay Playground from 4 to 6PM.  Come by and bring friends who are interested in learning more about GRP for some snacks, a Hawk story, and see camp friends!

In November, Case and Moose are heading to Virginia for the Virginia Independent School Conference in Richmond.  On the 13th, Harry and Edwards Morgan will host a camp show at their home in Suffolk.  Molly Wafle (GRP’s new Program Assistant) is having a camp show in her hometown of Fredericksburg.  Please contact the office for more information about these home shows.

While Case heads to Virginia, Jane and Bear will travel to Georgia for a camp home show in Macon with Greg Sutton and Graham Hefner.  On November 7, there will be an exhibitor at the Georgia Independent School Conference in Kennesaw.  We are making plans to visit the Kinneys in Rome and hope to visit Catherine Schenck in Atlanta.

On November 2, GRP will be in Charlotte for an Open House and Reunion at Fuel Pizza.  Please RSVP if you plan to come!  We are excited to see you!

Lots of traveling, but lots of fun in the coming months!  If you are interested spreading the word about GRP by hosting a camp open house please call us at 828.698.8828.
