Yes! You heard right! It's time for the Lighting Round.
(Those familiar to Camp know the Lighting Round well! Whenever we're doing something that takes WAY MORE TIME THAN WE INITIALLY ANTICIPATED we throw in a Lighting Round to speed things up a bit. Not that that's what's happening now. This Lighting Round was always planned. It's not that we're getting way too close to the beginning of summer with way too many staff to still meet. That's not it.)
Any way! The Lighting Round!
And now Lightning Introductions to go with the Lighting Round!
Molly is from England! She came to Camp five years ago and refused to leave! She now runs our Environmental Education Department! Like she did last year! And the year before that!
Erika was a camper! Erika was a counselor! Erika was a lifeguard! Now Erika is in charge of the waterfront!
Rachel was a camper! Rachel was a counselor! Rachel was an archery instructor! Now she oversees the Recreation Department!
Carl is the head chef! Carl is the longest tenured member of the Camp team! He's been working here a long time! Like, a long time! Carl worked here when I was a camper! Which was not recently!
Julia Langone has also been here a long time! No where close to a "Carl" long time, but a long time! For a while she helped run our all-Camp programs! Now she helps run nearly everything there is!
And those are your Lightning Round Introductions!
Sure, you might wonder if the fact that all of these new "introductees" are members of our Senior Staff, therefore already here at Camp, therefore easy to clump together in this photo relay, had anything to do with this Lighting Round.
Nonsense, we'd say. Purely coincidental. Has nothing to do with it.
Next Time: All of the rest of the volumes all at once.
