Minerva The 2012 Town of Minerva Youth Program wrapped up its six-week summer of sun and good times on Aug. 17 with a mostly noisy and all fun morning of skits, songs, awards and recognitions.
A good crowd of parents, guardians, friends, staff and campers showed that they were certainly ready for a great morning of endings, and beginnings. The summer was great at beautiful Minerva Lake, with its excellent beach, fine boat launch, wonderful concession stand and terrific atmosphere. Of course, the sunny weather didn’t hurt, either. All of these factors led to an entertaining and safe summer for the youth program campers.
The Minerva Youth Program (MYP) staff and support people did their usual wonderful job throughout the summer, keeping all the campers safe while allowing them to have fun. The summer program has fun as its bottom line, and this summer was no different. The weather was mostly cooperative — it was often a struggle to get the campers out of the water when the time came to gather at the pavilion for trips home on the buses or family/friend car.
The following is a wrap-up of the awards and recognitions that were given the morning of Aug. 17 at the Minerva Lake pavilion. After the Minerva Lake sailing program awards, Crazy Hat Day, Citizenship, and most improved swimmer awards were given out. First are the great Crazy Hat Day award winners!
