The Ahwahnee Dinner
Every year, camper donations and FOBTC send the staffers for an end of the season celebratory dinner at the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite. This year’s staff did not have the opportunity to go to the Ahwahnee but we wanted them to have a special dinner, not only for their own enjoyment but as a thank you for their hard work and efforts during those last days and minutes at BTC.
This year the staff dinner was at the Brazilian Room in Tilden Park. About 20 alumni staff showed up at the beginning of the evening to present the 2013 staff with a commemorative plaque and offer their heartfelt thanks. The evening included dinner and dancing and ended with a closing circle.
Many thanks to our camper volunteer, Katie Whitty, for the planning, time and energy she put into making this an exceptional event.
We also want to acknowledge and thank Campers & Friends who assisted in making this night happen.
