September 24, 1965

I had a great time at the dance tonight - no Vincent S.! Boy am I glad. It bothers me to see all the guys I used to hang around with in 7th and 8th grade now going off with other girls of --well-- uncertain morals! I did dance, though. I danced with Brian, Marcia's brother, he's 2 years younger than me but OK, and Ronny B., a colored boy. I was nervous about dancing with him, but I did -- 3 times.

September 23, 1965

Here I am again! It's been a long time. Marty is going to school here. I'm going to a dance tomorrow noght. I hope someone dances with me!! (No one in particular, though.) Marcia says Joe R. stares at me in history. Ron M., a sophomore, stares at me in Spanish. I do hope this means something good -- a change in me. Bob's happy in college, and Mom is ready to go back to work after an operation. Wish me luck tomorrow!

The last day. Today I say goodbye to Chris,Debbie, "Bubbles", Betty, Karen, and many more. I hope they're not my last campers.

August 13, 1965

Mom and Dad didn't come. too bad. It was real nice. All the time we were dancing I just couldn't wait to go home, but I was crying during the ceremony. I want to come back next year. Hope I can.

August 12, 1965

Dad's birthday. He'll be 44.

Well, Dad came to visit today, Mom too. I'm glad they came. In fact, I almost cried I was so happy to see them. I hope they come to the candlelight ceremony tomorrow night. I was initiated as an Indian. My name is Graceful Pine.

We went to Highland Lake (Taylor Brook) on our bike hike today (15 miles). We'll come back Thursday. I rode the whole way. I slept between Debbie and Bubbles. We swam 2 times and it was great. What a beautiful lake!

August 10, 1965

We were going to go on our bike hike today, but it was too rainy and such. Instead we hiked to Hall Meadow, a swimming area 3 miles from camp. I got a sunburn a little bit. We lost the Timbers-Rock softball game 5-1.

August 9, 1965

My day off today! I went home with Freckles (Donna) in Norfolk. I learned how to play Fan-Tan and went swimming at Tobey Lake. I love Freckle's family. They have 4 girls and 3 boys. I watched "The Man from UNCLE", too!

August 8, 1965

We had a Gay 90's day today at Waterfront! Our unit had a fun house and counselor sponge bath. I got sponged. The staff put on a melodrama. Donny played Lilly, Pip was the villain, Del was the mother, Sparki was the good guy and I was the villain's henchman. Everyone fell in the water 1/2 way through the thing.

June 16, 1965

I got 2 swim suits today!yellow and white. Marcia called. She went to Kirby's and Joey, Dennis and Rodney were there. Dennis likes her and Rodney asked her who the girl with the dress with the gold sunflowers was. IT WAS ME! She told him, when he asked how old I was and he asked if I was allowed to date.

Tonight we went. Marcia and I invited Bernadette, Susanne, Sandy S., Mary Ellen M.,Cindy J., Susy's sister and Marcia's brother, Brian. It was a blast. Rodney, the bass guitarist, kept looking at me. Dennis liked Marcia, and Joey was hypnotized by Susy (he's only 14). I danced with Brian and Kim H. Boy, does Kim dance c-l-o-s-e. I'll bet he knows now exactly how I looked undressed.

June 11, 1965

1st Exams - English and History. English was a breeze - HIstory was lousy! I'll bet I flunked (or almost did). I stayed over at Matcia's house. At 6, Mrs. Parker told Marcia that "she and her friends" had been invited to Durward Kirby's son's dance, but couldn't go. At 9, Mr. Parker came and took us! It was, however, the wrong night. We saw a rehearsal of the band. The lead guitar is Dennis Kirby, and the rhythm and lead singer is Joey Kennedy, who's been in "Oliver" and "Sound of Music" and the drummer is only 12 years old!

June 10, 1965

Last real day of school! The reason I haven't written much is that nothing has happened. It's all review and study - BLAH! We got our yearbooks. It's a nice one - black and gold. Bob, of course, if the best-looking guy in the class. All that's ;eft now is exam week.
