DEAR BEAUTIFUL RANGER GIRLS,

AS I PACK UP OUR SUPPLIES FOR THE WINTER, I RECALL THE THINGS WE HAVE DONE THIS SUMMER. I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE WORK AND COOPERATION FROM YOU, AND I CERTAINLY HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED COMING TO THE ARTS AND CRAFTS SHOP FOR THE PAST EIGHT WEEKS.

A SPECIAL BRAVO GOES TO THE SENIOR GIRLS FOR THE BEAUTIFUL JOB THEY DID ON THEIR TAPESTRIES. THE PAPIER-MCH JEWELRY WAS EQUALLY WELL DONE AND VERY FASHIONABLE.

BUNK 14 MADE WAX CANDLES AND BUNKS15 AND 16 DID SOME FINE JOBS IN COPPER ETCHING.

OUR YOUNGEST BUNKS MADE PUPPETS OUT OF CIGARETTE BOXES AND USED UP ALL THE ODDS AND ENDS IN THEIR IMAGINATIVE JUNK AND COLLAGE SCULPTURES. LANYARDS, MOSAIC HOT PLATES, AND GRAVEL PICTURES WERE ALSO DONE BY THE INTER GROUP.

THE DEB TEENS WERE THIS YEAR'S CERAMIC EXPERTS. THEY ALSO EXCELLED IN BASKET WEAVING AND CLAY MODELING. THESE ENERGETIC LADIES BRANCHED OUT INTO GRAVEL PICTURES AND PAPIER-MCH JEWELRY TOO.

AT THIS POINT I'D LIKE TO THANK ALL THE COUNSELORS WHO HELPED ME IN THE SHOP. WITHOUT THEIR AID AND SUPPORT I'D HAVE BEEN LOST. THANK YOU GIRLS. SPECIAL APPRECIATION GOES TOO MARILYN COHEN, JANE SPITALNIK, AND ROZ BRILL FOR ACTING IN MY PLACE AND ASSISTING ME. THANKS A MILLION! I HOPE YOU DIDN'T MIND TOO MUCH.

TO SUM UP THIS SUMMER I'D SAY WE WERE A SUCCESS. BESIDES ALL OUR NEW PROJECTS WE HAD SOME GOOD OPTIONS INCLUDING FASHION DESIGNING, SKETCHING, AND SCULPTURE. WE ALSO HAD SOME GOOD FUN TOO.

I HOPE THAT ALL OF YOU ENJOYED YOURSELVES IN THE ARTS AND CRAFTS SHOP AND WILL REMEMBER IT FONDLY. THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY SUMMER AS THE ARTS AND CRAFTS COUNSELOR A REWARDING ONE AND I HOPE YOUR WINTER IS A HEALTHY AND HAPPY ONE!

WITH LOVE,

ILENE BECKER
