HSRAA GATEWAY PROJECTS OK'D FOR CAMP HORSESHOE AND CAMP WARE

Missing...

From the October 2000 Octoraro Loop.

Dick Bensing, Committee Chairman for Special Projects, has been working with the Council's Camping and Property Committees to develop plans for significant gateways for both Camp Horseshoe and Camp John H. Ware, III. Preliminary plans have been approved. Final engineering drawings, materials list, timing, costs, etc. are being developed along with contractor bids. Each gateway is designed to have field stone bases with a bronze plaque embellished with the HSRAA logo and appropriate commemorative wording. Crossbars will suspend each camp's name-sign and special wording is planned for the reverse side.

Lists of other projects are being developed. Any person having a suggestion for special projects is invited to submit rough plans along with a justification of need. The committee will take suggestions into consideration and will respond accordingly.

HSRAA-FUNDED GATEWAYS FOR HSR DUE

From the March 2001 Octoraro Loop.

Missing... HSRAA Projects Chairman Dick Bensing reports that the HSRAA-funded new Gateways for entrances to Camp Horseshoe and Camp John H. Ware, III are due this summer. This is a significant project, the completion dates of which are during summer camp. It is hoped that one of the gateways will be ready for dedication at the HSRAA July 21, 2001 Reunion date. The gateways are designed to have field stone bases with a bronze plaque embellished with the HSRAA logo. A crossbar piece will be erected between the 12" x 12" support posts for each. The crossbar will carry a sign welcoming campers and visitors to the Camp. Initial cost estimates, based upon a prototype gateway, came in line with expectations. However, with appropriate modifications, judicious planning, etc., the cost is expected to be considerably less and closer to the budget of about $13,000.

HSRAA-FUNDED PROJECTS FOR HSR HERE

Missing...

From the July 2001 Octoraro Loop.

One of the highlights of the second annual HSRAA Reunion is the dedication of the first of two gateways funded by the Alumni/ae.

HSRAA Projects Chairman Dick Bensing reports that the HSRAA-funded Gateways for entrance to Camp Horseshoe and Camp John H. Ware, III are on target for this summer. The Camp Horseshoe gateway is ready for dedication at the HSRAA July 21, 2001 Reunion. Missing...

Each gateway is designed to have field stone bases and will have a bronze plaque embellished with the HSRAA logo. The crossbar will carry a sign welcoming campers and visitors to the respective Camp. The cost is expected to be considerably less and closer to the budget of about $13,000 for each gateway.

Because the site for the Camp John H. Ware, III Gateway requires a property easement and relocation of the camp road and with Camp in session, its construction will start later this year.
