Breaking News!

Mindy (Dorman) Cohen is having a Reunion on Sunday, July 19, 2015. This happens to be the 75th Anniversary of the creation of Camp TARIGO. Check out the FACEBOOK TARIGO Group for more details.

Hi All:
As it stands now, the plan is to meet and hang out on the grounds at Camp Tarigo and then have a barbecue lunch. I have found an incredible place near the camp where we can eat, drink and make new memories. "SPILLIAN" "A Place To Revel" located on Rte 28 in Fleischmann's. ( You must check out their website).

Here's the thing, they will only allow me to book the entire place on a Sunday. I need to know how many of you would be available on July 19th. They require a deposit, so I need your responses rather quickly.

Anyone who would want to come up on Saturday night, there are many hotels, motels and Bed & Breakfast Inns in the surrounding area. We could meet for dinner Saturday night in a place to be determined. Phoenicia has some nice restaurants and of course there is Peekamoose.

Can't wait to reunite with everyone.
Mindy (Dorman) Cohen

WHAT BEGAN AS A WELCOME TO FLORIDA LUNCH FOR THREE OF US, TURNED INTO THE FIRST ANNUAL REUNION OF 10 TARIGOITES, CIRCA 1940'S AND 1950'S.

FOR THESE "GENTLEMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE", WHO OFTEN HAVE DIFFICULTY REMEMBERING WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY, IT WAS QUITE REMARKABLE HOW WE SPENT OVER FOUR HOURS REMEMBERING THE MOST MINUTE DETAILS FROM BACK THEN.

THE EVENT, WHICH WE AGREED WOULD BECOME AN ANNUAL GATHERING, HAD US "ANCIENTS" TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE AND STORIES FROM 60+ YEARS AGO, AS IF THEY HAD JUST HAPPENED.

WE HOPE THAT THOSE READING THIS "LOVE LETTER" TO THE "HILLS OF HEALTH" PASS IT ON TO OTHER TARIGO MEN, AND WOMEN.....WHO WERE NOT THERE FROM '47 TO 54,AND HOPE THAT MORE OF YOU CAN JOIN US IN THE FUTURE...
