Oct 24: Keewaydin Service Award Presented to Joe Fogg ’60

Earlier this week, Joe Fogg was presented the 2011 Keewaydin Service Award at the annual New York Keewaydin Alumni Reception.

Leslie and Joe Fogg with daughter-in-law, Darcy Fogg.

Hosted by Roger Smith Hotel owners Sue II and Jimmy Knowles, the party included a large number of Joe’s family, close friends, the Keewaydin camp directors and the Foundation Board, all on hand to celebrate Joe and all he’s done for Keewaydin.  Joe was a camper at both Dunmore (’60) and Temagami (’61-’62), Temagami staff (’63-’65, ’67), parent (’86-’92, ’99-’04), Co-Owner of Keewaydin Temagami (’90-’01), and a member of the Keewaydin Foundation Board (’01-’07).  In 1999 Joe, with his partner Lew Lehrman, started Songadeewin for girls on Devil’s Island.  In 2001, Joe and Lew generously donated Keewaydin Temagami to the Keewaydin Foundation, bringing back together the two camps after more than 60 years apart.

A copy of Joe’s remarks are here.  Congratulations Joe!
