6 Part Dedication of Mary’s Lodge – 1 The People – THANK YOU!


Some 250 – 300 people were present for the dedication of the new Mary’s Lodge at Camp Howard August 11, 2018.  The turnout exceeded expectations which thrilled the CYO/Camp Howard staff!

The event was catered for the purpose of allowing the hardworking camp cooks the opportunity to enjoy the day as well!  I might add they were all in attendance!

Special thanks to all of our friends for attending the dedication and sharing our joy!

Mary’s Lodge First Campers to Eat in the New Dining Hall


The first meal in the new Mary’s Lodge will long be remembered by the campers who ate the last meal in Gimpl Hall and the first meal in Mary’s Lodge!  One cabin group helped set up the dining hall for the first meal.  The Unit Directors sent the campers in groups by unit after they washed their hands in the new hand washing station!  Campers entered the building, eyes wide open looking at the newness of the facility while finding their seats for the morning meal.  As we checked on the kids during the meal our expectations were satisfied.  They loved it!

Mary’s Lodge Kitchen…First Meal


Wednesday August 8, 2018 we opened Mary’s Lodge for the first time and served the campers a very special pancake breakfast.  The campers love pancakes and it was a great meal to test the new equipment.  The pancakes all cooked at the same temperature, the new “combi” oven, a combination of heat and steam made for very moist and tasteful sausage links, strawberries, whipped cream, it was a great first meal.  No one went away dissatisfied!  Even the dishwashers were happy with their new equipment which includes a pot and pan cleaning station prior to going through the dishwasher!
