A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTORS

Once again it is our sad task to write a 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 37 years of Ranger's existence. We remember with fond thoughts, all of the pleasant events of this season: the wonderful Circus and Carnival which raised $500 for the U.J.A.; the exciting trips to Gettysburg, Thousand Islands, Howe Caverns and West Point; the co-ed outdoor barbecues; water-skiing and sailing; the cook-outs and sleep-outs; the exciting inter-camp games; the roller skating; the bowling night in Liberty; the thrilling "Day with the Knicks" starring Johnny Green; a most exciting Red and Gray that was so closely contested all the way, ending with the fine sing; the yummy "Sundaes on a Sunday"; the thrilling "Ranger Raceway" night; the spectacular "Aquashow"; the fine tennis clinic and exhibition by Eli Epstein, the pro at Grossinger's; the inspiring Friday night services; the weekly socials culminating in the very formal dress-up "Final Proms"; the outdoor movies; the great Indian show put on by Chief Thunder Pony; our tremendous dramatic shows, which included "The King and I," "Peter Pan," "The Best of Broadway," "Li'l Abner," "Guys and Dolls," and the superb finale, "Brigadoon"; the end-of-season, two-day athletic competition with the Red and Gray spirit; the satisfying "Announcement of Awards" night; and, finally, the "Annual Banquet" followed by the heartwarming 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 Ranger not only during this season but in the seasons past 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 27th, 1963 in the Penn Top Room at the Hotel in New York City. We also hope to have the added pleasure of having you with us again at Camp Ranger in 1963 for another enjoyable and exciting summer.

Fondly,
Jerry Lorber and Lou Silverman
