Alumni Work Weekend Wrap-Up

The 6th Annual Alumni Work Weekend may of been the finest to date! Was it the perfect weather? The 40+ alums and a few sons? Was it the BBQ feast at the waterfront? Was it the camaraderie of alums and staff? Was it the Al Piper Hamstring Softball Classic? All of these make-up this classic Tecumseh weekend, and as was noted throughout the weekend, many ask themselves “why have I not been doing this all along?”

Here’s a quick wrap-up. Attendance is listed below. Stand out project was the painting of the hitting wall up at the top of the hill (look at that job!). MVP went to Matt Mayock. Matt is an AWW stalwart. From his first-arrival status, to his commentary of the Al Piper Hamstring Softball Classic, to his workhorse mentality on the woodchip crew – Matt is everything you could ask for of a participant – works hard, shows up on time, good for a laugh, and gets things done when you arent looking. The LeastVP went to Jim Lamb. Now, take this the right way. The LVP is not about a lack of know-how, or interest, or energy, or strength – its simply the guy that just kind of really never owned any single project all weekend. Jim dabbled here, he dabbled there, but you never really knew what Jim was actually doing at any given moment. Newcomer went to Bill Neff. Bill drove up with Matt Mayock, so we knew he got 8 hours of inspirational talk, and he delivered the goods upon arrival. Quite simply, Bill would of wheedwhacked your leg if you got in his way. Are there any weeds left on campus…at all? Special shout-out in the newcomer award goes to Kevin KDOC Dougherty, who in typical Kev form, swam 3 islands, ran 5 high noons, lifted weights (in the re-furbed weight room, btw), AND, worked on the standout project of the weekend, the hitting wall – way to bring the heat Kev.

No award, but, the spirit of this weekend is quite simply found in the friendship between Peter Stanley and Richie Allman. For all AWW alums, you get it, because you’ve seen it. These guys show up every year early, sleep in a senior tent (their own little palace), work on projects (when they aren’t golfing), and do it all while barefoot the whole time! They introduce themselves as best friends and to see them in action it’s undeniable. The spirit of the weekend – the camaraderie, the spirit of service, the friendship, the love for Camp – Richie and Peter model that for all to see and it’s a very special thing.

All whom attend are worth of mention. It’s a truly special thing to see bonds created as grown people over this weekend, just as they are while Campers at Camp. Thank you to all that attended, and keep coming! Those whom always attend and had to miss, we will see you next year!

A HUGE thank you to Director Doug Knight and his staff for allowing us to roam free all weekend. Doug and his team are in great shape and are already into another fantastic summer. Camp is in trusty hand, that’s for sure!

Until next year…

CT Legend Dr. Peter J. Jannetta’s Legacy

Dr. Peter J. Jannetta, a neurosurgeon who as a medical resident half a century ago developed an innovative procedure to relieve an especially devastating type of facial pain, died on Monday in Pittsburgh. He was 84.

The cause was complications from a brain injury suffered in a recent fall, said Susan Jannetta, his daughter.

Dr. Jannetta, a retired faculty member of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, was considered one of the foremost neurosurgeons in the world.

A specialist in cranial nerve disorders, he was renowned in particular for having identified the minute culprit responsible for trigeminal neuralgia — a condition causing agonizing facial pain — and for developing a way to vanquish that culprit through microsurgery on the brain.
