which was part of our ham radio program; the delicious "Sundae on Sundays" treat; the weekly movies, the great outdoor barbecues and lawn suppers; the inspiring Friday night services where we all learned something we just didn't realize before; the counselor concert that literally shook the Rec Hall that great counselor group; the fantastic Birthday Ball and how everybody joined in with such fun and excitement; the final Proms with that live band; the great dramatic program this year which included, "Grease", "Flower Drum Song", "Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs", "Finian's Rainbow'', "Pinafore", "CoIe Porter Revue". the counselor show, "Once Upon a Mattress'' played with such professionalism and dedication to the joy of everyone and the big show, "No, No, Nanette" which received a standing ovation by all; the professional demonstration by Bill Lloyd (by the way, he once beat Arthur Ashe) and the fake fight between the members of our Tennis Department, SoI Lesser and Larry Nieman, which startled everyone by breaking out in Color War at that most unsuspecting time; the fun filled and exciting color war that ended with a memorable sing and the four new plaques which now adorn our dining room walls; the relaxed, slow-paced Lazy Day which followed our color war and came right at the right moment; the competition which took place as well as all of the various hockey, baseball, basketball leagues, etc., which were so exciting and well played; the breathless excitement of the "Announcement of Awards and Ranger Memory Night"; the unveiling of our new Banquet procedure to honor 50 years of Camp Ranger's dedication to the welfare of children, the viewing of slides of the 1975 season by all of the campers; the moving and tender candle lighting ceremonies for 1975, accompanied by literal tears of joy and sadness for this beautiful and meaningful summer.

To all of you our campers and staff, we thank you and bid a fond farewell. We know that the friendships, made here at Camp Ranger this season as well as in the past will continue for many years to come and will be a bright and important part of your lives.

We are looking forward to the great pleasure of seeing all of you again at our annual reunion which will be held at the Terrace Ballroom of the Statler Hilton Hotel, New York City on January 11, 1976.

We look forward again to having the pleasure of having you back with us at Ranger in 1976.

We are in the process of planning an even more exciting and challenging summer in 1976 that we had in 1975, if that is possible.
