Dear Girls and Boys:

    Once again it is our sad task to write our farewell message to our own Ranger boys and girls with whom we have lived so happily for the past eight weeks.

    The season just passed has been one of the happiest and healthiest that we have had in the 36 years of Ranger's existence.  We remember, with fond thoughts, all of the pleasant events of the season - the wonderful Circus and Carnival, which raised $500 for the UJA; the exciting trips to Gettysburg, Niagara Falls, Watkins Glen, West Point, and Catskill Game Farm; the outdoor barbecues (co-ed); water-skiing and sailing; the cookouts and sleepouts plus "skinny-dipping"; the excitement of the inter camp games; the roller skating; the bowling nights in town; the growing "Day With the Knicks" starring Willie Knalls and Johnny Green; the fine tennis clinic and exhibition by Eli Epstein, the pro at Grossinger; the wonderful "Aqua show"; the yummy "Sundaes on a Sunday"; the exciting "Ranger Raceway" night; the tremendous Red and Gray that was so closely contested all the way; the inspiring Friday evening services; the socials each week culminating in the extremely fine dress-up Proms; our superior dramatic programs featuring the excellent productions of "H.M.S. Pinafore", "The Wizard of Oz", "Best of Broadway", "South Pacific", and ending with a superb to "Flower Drum Song"; the wonderful feeling reliving our fine summer on "Ranger Memory Night"; and finally be "Annual Banquet" followed by the heart-warming candle lighting ceremony at the lake.

    To all of you - our campers and staff alike - we bid a fond farewell.  We hope that the friendships made here at camp this year and in the years gone by will continue for many years to come and will grow stronger with each passing year.

    We are looking forward to the great pleasure of seeing all of you again at our Annual Reunion which will be held on Sunday afternoon, January 28th, 1962 in the Penn Top Room at the Hotel Statler Hilton in New York City.  We also hope to have the added pleasure of having you with us again at Camp Ranger in 1962 for another enjoyable and exciting summer.

Very cordially yours,    

JERRY LORBER and    
LOU SILVERMAN
