The annual Kamp Kiwanis Open House took place Saturday, May 14, at the Kamp. Several dedications and acknowledgments took place.
'Jim's Marina' Dedicated
The marina at Kamp Kiwanis was dedicated to Past Gov. Jim Yochum. In addition to being past governor, Yochum served many years as the treasurer of the New York District Foundation, which operates the kamp, and had served in many other roles during his years in Kiwanis.
Pictured from left, are Yochum's son, Steve and his wife, Jenn; Jim's widow, Mary; Lindy Marrazzo, immediate past president of the foundation, and Sal Anelli, foundation president. The sign over the entrance to the marina features three figures, representing Jim and two of his grandchildren fishing as shown on an actual picture which is displayed on the post next to Anelli. In the picture, from left, are Mikey Yochum, TJ Yochum and Jim.
