Helping to Rebuild Wildwood
At our July 4th week-end at Wildwood Retreat Center, we were asked if we could make donations towards the rebuilding of the cook’s house, which was falling apart. We raised $4465 and here are some news about it:
Yes, Darleen’s cabin is being built. The structure is up and the windows are in and most of the siding is up now. It is going to be a great improvement over what she has lived in! The Body Electric group here this week is trying to raise the additional $2500 to be able to go ahead and put a working bathroom in for her. We’re hoping that will happen as that would be a huge convenience for her as well…….and a big upgrade.
Please convey our deepest gratitude to you and your guys that so generously donated the materials to make this happen. As you know, food is a very important part of the Wildwood experience and Darleen’s cooking is vital to making this place a great place to come.
President’s Day 2011
What an amazing weekend was had by 27 guys at the Discovery President’s Day Retreat at Westminster Woods in Occidental. This was the first winter retreat in four years. Most guys stayed in the lodges with all the comforts of home. A few late-birds were in the more rustic cabins. The topics of the workshops related to Lifelong Friendships – finding friends, managing friendships and special situations for gay friendships. With the cooperation of the weather, the group also enjoyed long hikes through the spectacular redwoods, a couple of very topical movies (Big Eden and Toy Story 3) and, of course, the talent/no talent show. There was plenty of talent to showcase – from coming out stories, to stand-up comedy, drag, singing and the bevvy of beauties. It was a pleasure to have a mix of long-time Discovery members and new people, including a terrific guy in a wheelchair, who taught the group a lot about the differently-abled. The Westminster Woods staff was on hand through out the weekend and could not have been more welcoming. The kitchen gave us good, hearty, nutritious meals. Our hostess, Malika, was a lot of fun and the techboy Randy was particularly easy on the eyes as he moved about the campground doing his chores. Planning will soon start for the Independence Day weekend retreat at Wildwood.

Our group wanted something different this time, instead of the traditional group holding the banner. I could also set the camera on a tripod and run to be part of it!
