I recently held an annual meeting with Mike Drumm on February 23rd at Camp Fatima. We always meet to get ready for the Knights' “Annual Camp Fatima Work Day”. This year it will be held on May 19th 2018.
Much to my surprise, Mike informed me that back in October 2017 a micro-burst went through the camp. Luckily, most of the buildings only received minor damage. There was some damage to the chapel and a couple of the cabins along with outside activities area. But a lot of trees were taken down. The Camp had to hire people to remove the trees. This was a big expense for them.
My reason for this letter is to ask all of our New Hampshire Councils, to please consider making at least a $100.00 donation to help with these expenses. Camp Fatima is self-insured through the Diocese, although, the Diocesan deductible is very high and portion is assessed to the entity filling the claim.
If you can, please send a check made out to Camp Fatima and mail it to me.

We will have a lot of work on “Work Day” to help clean up the remains of the storm damage. Many hands make light work, so please plan ahead and consider helping in any way you can on that day, May 19th
Camp Fatima has always been good to the New Hampshire Knights, providing us the camp for our Camporee Weekend over Labor Day, as well as providing the Knights a place to hold our annual retreat.
Don't forget, any Knight in good standing that comes to Work Day can receive 20% discount to
send a child or grandchild to summer camp. Work Day also reserves your cabin for Camporee.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and help.
