Alice!

Alice is a "lifer" in camp terms. She joined the CB crew this past September, straight from her position at Camp Oconto where she spent many fabulous years. You know how they say "a picture says a thousand words"...well, the picture below does a fine job of depicting Alice....someone who brings a great spirit and fun approach to the team, every day. We have had more decorations to celebrate holidays in our office since Alice (and Alison) joined than in the past 20 years combined!
