South Hero Historical Society Program-”Eagle Camp”--7 pm, Fri., July 11, 2014--Folsom School

South Hero Historical Society Program-”Eagle Camp”--7 pm, Fri., July 11, 2014--Folsom School Do you think you know anyone in these pictures of Eagle Camp youngsters? The South Hero Historical Society’s monthly program was about Eagle Camp, a family camp which has been in South Hero for 124 years. Our presenter was William Drury whose great-grandfather started Eagle Camp and whose parents, Robert and Alice Drury, served as managers while Bill was growing up in South Hero. He talked about the origins of Eagle Camp and his recollections of times past. Eagle Camp has been managed by members of the Perry family for its entire existence except for a six-year period in the early 70s. Many people here in the Islands worked at Camp waiting tables, changing beds, and making the place run smoothly for vacationing families. Some of those families ended up living in the Islands.
