Pond Work Completed...
   As many of you may have known our pond in the lower
campground was in need of repair. Thanks to many local
contractors who lent Camp Winnebago their machinery,
the pond was completed in October of 2004.
   Camp Winnebago wishes to thank Tom Molling for the
use of his dozer, Jeff Kruckow for the use of his loader,
and a special thanks to Tom and Bob Burroughs for doing
the actual work on the project.
   Thanks to Keith Comstock of Comstock Trucking for
donating the sand to put in a volleyball net, and also thanks
to Lynn Goldsworthy and Kevin Ohm of the Rochester
Host Lions Club for re-doing the walking bridge in lower
  It is only through the kind contributions of individuals
and organizations like you, that we are able to continue to
provide and expand our services to persons with                           Rochester Host Lions—Lynn Goldsworthy and Kevin
developmental disabilities. Thank you!                                          Ohm, re-doing the snowmobile bridge.
