Hi all,

This is Kris Fiore, the Director at Unirondack. I just got off the phone with the leaders of the various UUACCC camps and conference centers and wanted to share with you a thread woven throughout conversation as we talked everything from financial strategy, contingency planning, staffing questions, and just venting our personal feelings around the impact of the current events we're all facing.

The subtext in every topic we covered was that we just so deeply wish to be there for the people who love our centers.

In the past 10 years I've been lucky enough to visit the Rowe Center, Murray Grove, Star Island, UBarU, Ferry Beach, and The Mountain. (Don't worry DeBenniville Pines, Shelter Neck, and UniCamp, I'll come visit someday!) and what always strikes me the most is the connection between those who attend these centers and the place they love.

Times are tough right now but we want you to know there is no lack of motivation from any of us to be there for you and we are thinking of our communities near and dear. Much more information is sure to come in throughout the weeks and months but together we are committed to being there, somehow, someway.

Thanks for being a part of one of our centers. My heart is with Rowe Center Retreaters, Ferry Beach Families, Star Island Pelicans, The Mountain Staff, Unicampers, UBarU Board Members, Shelter Neck Volunteers, DeBenneville Pines Alumni, Murray Grove Members and all those who love and support these organizations. We're thinking of you and we're working hard to be there for you anyway we can.

-Kris Fiore, Director at Unirondack and grateful member of UUACCC
