This is in reference to The Foundation's Pirate Day at Happiness is Camping.
Unfortunately, we have just been apprised by the Director of the camp regarding "the measles outbreak in the Northeast and the fact that its effects could have a devastating impact on our campers on active treatment. Therefore, we are requiring all visitors to camp to be vaccinated for measles." According to their Medical Director, it takes 3 weeks for the vaccine to immunize them. Therefore, if any volunteers aren't immunized at this point then, unfortunately, they won't be able to come.
Sadly, as a result of this unfortunate turn of events, we will cancel the event this year. We will still deliver the goody bags to Happiness, leaving them with the guard at the entrance, earlier that week.
Remember, we have another summer event on August 1 at Hilltop School in Haverstraw, NY. We hope you consider joining us there.
Very truly yours,
Idelle Schwinder & Sharon Schiffelhuber
