The Herb Cohen Memorial Fund (HCMF) was established in memory of Herb Cohen, who spent over 40 years at Camp Saginaw as a counselor, head counselor, teacher, mentor and friend. Herb felt strongly that all children should have the opportunity to attend summer camp. To that end, one of the goals of the fund is to provide support for children who otherwise would not be able to attend camp.
Once again, the HCMF will be sponsoring the Hill-IJ and the Acropolis-IJ games on Saturday, August 8, 2015. Alumni twenty-one (21) years and older are invited to join us. Please remember that camp is in session, so we kindly ask you not to arrive before 10:00 a.m. and to depart in a timely fashion at the conclusion of the games. Event times are:
- 10:00 a.m. – Acropolis-IJ game
*Immediately following the Acropolis-IJ game – Tree Planting & Remembrance in Honor of Debbie Fink Green
- 1:00 p.m. – Lunch
- 2:00 p.m. – Hill-IJ game
Debbie Fink Green attended Saginaw from 1984-1993 as a camper and counselor. She reconnected with Dave Green (1984-1991) at the 2008 reunion. Over Memorial Day weekend in 2011, surrounded by friends, family and Saginaw alumni, they celebrated their love for each other and camp by saying their vows in the Dell followed by a reception in Saniford Hall. Debbie passed away on April 1, 2015 after a three-year battle with appendiceal cancer.
A minimum donation of $20 is requested to attend the day. Please make checks payable to the Herb Cohen Memorial Fund. Your donation will be collected upon your entry into camp.
We look forward to seeing you on August 8th.
