That Damn DAM - Camp Baum

You have all had the pleasure of spending time at Camp Baum and whether you've been up there once or go every summer you know how special it really is.

Grandpa has had an ongoing battle with that, "DAMN DAM," and if there is anything in his life that isn't finished this is it. So, we're looking at all our Camp Baum family to help out!

The premise - The dam is going to cost around $30,000 to repair and only $12,000 or so is left to pay. Lermond Pond and Alfred Lake will be running a fundraiser at some point for it, but we think it would be pretty cool to have one big donation from Camp Baum!

The idea is to have everyone donate on this site we have set up, and no donation is too small but we are going to give out prizes to those who INDIVIDUALLY donate $100 or above! Hopefully we will be able to reach our goal of $3,000 and even pass it! All those who donate will get their name on a plaque we are going to hang-up in Grandpa's Camp. 

We kindly ask that all donations be in by December 15th so we can give this to Grandpa at Christmas. Along with donating we think it would be awesome to write a thank you note as well for opening up his camp for all those to enjoy, and of course for making approximately 1 million pancakes. You may write your note on here OR you can mail one to Grandpa's DAMN DAM/Diane Baum 11 Mast Road Scarborough, Me 04074.

Another favor to ask - we would like to keep this a surprise for Grandpa so no spilling the beans!!!!

And don't worry, we will video record Grandpa being presented with the check along with the thank you notes! 

Thank you all so much in advance! You are all family and we love you!
