Quite a few who have been instrumental in the ongoing success of San Jose Family Camp have announced they are no longer able to contribute at the levels they previously have. We would also like to thank them for all they so selflessly gave. We wish you well in all future endeavors, and please know you are always welcome to join us for work weekends!
Please stay tuned for updates regarding upcoming events, or if you want first hand knowledge, or to give input, join us for the next board meet! It will be held 14 February at Kelly Park. The meeting starts at 7. All members, or anyone interested in becoming a member is welcome!
The June, July, and August Board meetings are traditionally held at *Stanleys* Grill and Bar, the food outlet at the Ice Hockey Rink right around the corner from Kelly Park.
Upstairs, we get the private room off to the side across from the Air Hockey tables. Just ask if you can’t easily find us.
Meeting starts officially at 7- get there a little early and have a soft drink on us.
Should you wish to mesh our calendar with your own Google Calendar, our calendar is public at : email@example.com
Our normally wonderful site at Kelly Park is unavailable this month, so we are meeting at our alternative happy place. We have the back room reserved for our 7PM meeting this month. PLEASE feel free to come on down and hang out with us. We love new faces. And drinks are on us.
Members of “The Friends” are a pretty lucky bunch of folks. Not only do we volunteer during the winter here in town, raising money, doing outreach, hosting the BBQ Night, and setting up our plans for spring, but once the snows are gone, we get to go to CAMP!
Volunteers before or after the regular season stay in their choice of empty available cabins while they are up helping to set up, clean, repair, and add to the basics camp offers. During the season, we are also up at camp. Volunteers use our “Friends” tents at the end of camp and help out in the kitchen, serve meals, clean up areas, assist the staff when they need help, and also promote Friends with our Saturday Wine and Cheese outreaches when possible. We supplement staff when needed for special events and we host our own end of year camping weekend just for Friends that have volunteered that season.
Most work weekends we are done early enough to run into Yosemite and enjoy the scenery
There is nothing quite like a weekend in the mountains. Come join us.
