So many alumni, so many memories… after an incredibly magical weekend at camp and a spirited and schmooze-filled banquet in Michigan, our 75th anniversary celebrations have come and gone. Because of so many of you, both events were huge hits and will long be remembered as wonderful Tamakwa memories. We thank each and every one of you who came to celebrate with us.
There are plenty of pictures documenting these two events.

We have heard from so many of you about how wonderful it was to be back at camp or just to reconnect with so many people from summers’ past. We would love to hear more from those in attendance at either event about why you felt it was so important for you to be there and what made the events so rewarding.
The Michigan event was filled with schmoozing, reconnecting, sing songs, a rockin’ Tamakwa Band, and lots of spontaneity from our very spirited alumni. While we loved every last schmooze, our planned evening program was slightly modified and we decided not to deliver any prepared speeches. We would still like to share (shortened) versions of them with those of you interested. Click Here for Vic’s edited speech and Click Here for Craig’s edited speech.
