Re: “The Selling of Forest Beach

I went to Forest Beach Camp in 1962 and 1963 with my then-best friend, Barb Belt (Ritchie). My counselor the first summer was Barb Orfield ("Orf") who went to St. Olaf's College during the school year. I remember it so fondly, despite the poison ivy debacle the second summer there, when some kids put a "bouquet" of it in the staff latrine and I got blamed for it because everyone knew I wasn't allergic to it. Other than that -- GOOD TIMES. I still have my Forest Beach button up sweat shirt with Orf's "self portrait" cartooned on the back. So sorry to hear it's gone.
