A small back story-
Thirty-five years ago, my family started their yearly treks to the catskills. My mother was in her late teens, at the time. They would go on vacation with a big group of people, the 3-H as they called themselves, a group of friends who would go to dinner and dancing, vacation and enjoy alcoholic libations together. My great grandmother was a founding member of this group. When the all the children grew up and got married, they joined the group and so on and so on.
It was 3 years of vacations before they found Sunny Hill. It was perfect- golf, the lake, the pool, shuffle board. As the original members of the group aged, they still came and the younger ones took their place causing mayhem. When i was 5 years old, i made my first memorable trip to Sunny Hill. It was there that I met my dearest and oldest friend, whose parents had joined the group, the only outsiders at the time.
Every Labor Day Weekend, our families made the trek up. As we got older, some of us didn't make it because or work or school, and i was no exception. I had managed to go spend a day there a few times since high school, but this past year, I made the journey up with my grandmother, now 5 quarters of an hour old, and my 2 year old daughter. Though the place has changed is focus, now on the children and families, less on the older folks and activities of days in he past, i still felt welcome. I still felt loved and Gary, Wayne and Gail still knew who i was.
I cannot wait to watch my daughter grow up there. She is the 5th generation, we can't stop going now.
