Cheyenne Cunning and the Camp Howard Store


Cheyenne Cunning has been working at Camp Howard since she was old enough to walk! She graduated from college this spring so this is her last summer as a youth staff member at the camp.  She started out doing dishes, helped cook for rentals, was on the “Pop up Team” from Seton Catholic (came at a moments notice to help clean or do a special project at camp), and for the past three summers, has run the camp store.  She will be a big loss to the camp as she moves forward toward her career this year but the memories she has left behind will never be forgotten!  #sistersblog #cyocamphoward

Cinderella’s Glass Slipper Tea Huge Success!

Marian Hall at St. Joseph’s Parish in Vancouver was the site of the highly publicized Glass Slipper Tea, an event crafted to draw attention to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Prep’s first ever musical drama production which will take place February 22 & 23 at 7:00 pm and Sunday the 24th at 2:00 in the afternoon.  The Royal Durst Theater on Main Street in downtown Vancouver is the site of the presentation.  Tickets are available through the school and will be available at the door.

Several grade school girls, dressed in their favorite Cinderella costume, attended the tea with mothers, aunts and grandmothers.  Photo opportunities were available for the youth to pose with the “REAL” Cinderella and Prince Charming.  A delightful afternoon of tea, desserts, photos, dancing, silent auction,

The volunteer laden effort has been spearheaded by a few volunteers intent on thanking the first frosh through senior class at the school for making Seton Catholic their choice and foregoing a few of the programs available at more established schools.  The offerings at Seton have grown considerably in the past four years since it was established in 2009, but a musical drama is proving to be a popular event for the school.

The title role of Cinderella is being played by Senior, Madeline Hunter who hopes to embark on a career in drama.  The role of Prince Charming, is being played by Senior, John Tomassi.

Senior, Cheyenne Cunning has designed all of the sets which have been assembled and ready for paint.  Cunning hopes to make use of her exceptional artistic talent in the future with plans of studying a related field in college next year.  Cunning will also play the role of the Wicket Step-Mother!

Local Catholic School Girl Set to Marry Prince in February!

Seton Catholic High School is presenting their very first musical production CINDERELLA February 22,23,24th at the Royal Durst Theater in Vancouver, Washington!  My niece, Cheyenne Cunning, will be playing the wicked step-mother!  I would like to ask YOU to join me at one of the performances and help this new school by attending and lending the support of your good nature!

I will be helping at all three performances as a volunteer working on the production.  I have to tell you, it is not easy starting a new school.  Things we take for granted at our established schools are hardships for students in a new school without a theater for example.  The entire production is being produced by volunteer efforts including the rental of the local theater.

Madeleine Hunter, a senior at the school, with hopes of pursuing drama as a career choice following high school, will be playing the title role of Cinderella in this exciting musical production!  Prince Charming will be played by John Tomassi, also a talented actor and founding member, along with Hunter,  of the popular “Setonotes” a school a cappella  singing group.

You are in for a treat as this talented group of young people lend their talents to the production of the play.

Tickets are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for students.  Your attendance and generosity are most appreciated!
