2017 Corn Roast
September 17th, 2017
The Labour Day weekend continued with the hot summery weather, as the campers enjoyed the juicy and tender local corn that Sieffert's Farm is known for. John W. and John B. shucked 75 cobs of corn which were enjoyed by about 40 campers. Thanks to George B. for boiling up the delicious niblets and Brendan, Matthew and Wendy for the prepping and clean-up. What a wonderful end to the summer for many campers, but we still have some hardy souls planning to camp on the Thanksgiving weekend.

July 20th, 2017
There was considerable discussion for the past couple of mornings as some of the returning customers; 3 generations of Sharpe's (40 plus years) the Nelson's (29 years), Lindstrom's (20 plus years) and Defrias (15 years) were eagerly waiting for another long time customer Bill and Linda Whitten (40th year of returning to camp at the Beach) to show up in the hopes they will catch a few cod and pick a few blackberries. As they are known to cook deep fried cod balls and make blackberry crisp for their camping family.
On July 1st John Bates served up cake to all the campers on our 150th Birthday.
