Here are some of my bunkmates when I was a waiter. Johnny Kirp, Danny Reck, Louie Grable, Norman Green, Steve Stern, David Mandel, hmmm. I'll remember more later. My sister Margie Jacobs was at camp. I dated people like Barbara Kalmenson when I was ten. Carol Gelman when I was about 16. I believe Carol and I broke up in Jennifer Rains house in Teaneck. I used to tell To-loa stories in college and a female student from Phoenix used to laugh and laugh and tell me about a friend of hers who told similar stories about her camp. I finally met this woman and it turned out to be another To-loan named Newman. Her brother was named Paul Newman. Also when I was doing a series of reports on Woodstock I asked the author if he knew Bert Summer since he played at Woodstock. He laughed. I asked what was so funny. He said he had a friend in DC who went to camp with Bert. It was another To-loan who I did speak to but forget his name. Any thoughts on a To-loa reunion?

I too went to TOLOA, but don't remember the year(s). I was kind of young, but remember the experience.

Hi, enjoy the above. I was a camper in 1955 and 56, camper-waiter in 58, CIT '59 and Jr Counselor in '60. Unfortunately do not recognize your names from my 5 terrific summers there. Would love to hear from anyone else from that time. But, Carol Price: is your brother Arthur Price? he was in my cabin I think in '55 or maybe '56. If so, tell him hi!

My brothers Mark and Peter Van Name went there along with I in 1965. I remember the flag raising and morning assemblies, the lake with canoes, the mess hall, arts and crafts building with a kiln...but most of all the night raids on other bunks. April Fredricks ran the horse stable. That's where you could always find me. Dana was also a good friend. We played stickball and did summer theater. Saw my first Fender guitar that one of the counsellors owned. Yes special very. -Paul Van Name
