On the Saturday in the middle of camp session 4, Frost Valley’s trustees, alumni, donors and other friends joined together for our annual meeting/get-together/celebration. We hear presentations by campers and staff. We award the annual Eric Blum Volunteer of the Year. And we induct people crucial to the history of Frost Valley into our Hall of Fame. Here are some photos taken during that weekend. So many good friends! So many people who have been good to Frost Valley—generous, loyal, focused on what kids and families need.
