Camp New Day says thank you

To the Journal editor:

It has been a tough year for us all including Camp New Day. We were not able to hold our weeklong summer camp this year, but our board members traveled the U.P. this summer paying visits to all our campers. We provided them each with a “Camper Care Package” and spent some time visiting. We are currently planning more trips to spend a little more time with them.

As with most nonprofits, our finances have been negatively impacted by the pandemic. Several organizations that are facing some of the same funding challenges have still managed to donate to our mission. We would like to recognize and thank them along with a few friends.

The Frazier Fund, Ray and Peg Hirvonen Foundation, M&M Area Community Foundation, Superior Health Foundation Marquette County Community Foundation, Community Foundation for Delta County, Pioneer Kiwanis. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Marquette, Eastwood Nursing Center, Liz and Dennis Boe, Louise Wilcox

Our Board is moving forward and planning for next year’s camp and whatever day trips we will be able to do this fall and winter. Thank you for your support.
