Would you be kind enough to indulge me for a moment?
My name is Rick, and yeah Cindy Crawford's picture is on my post. I bet you're wondering why?
I am a Director of Operations at a Camp that is pure magic. We do all kinds of fun for kids all summer and all year long. There is one thing that most of our campers and our organization have in common, and that is ...very little in resources.
I have been the Camp Director for the last 7 years and have transitioned to this new role overseeing our entire 77 acres ... in many ways ... alone.
We have all kinds of summer programming staff that pitch in and great high school students who mow lawns part time. And family members and volunteer groups that help with little to no pay. But I have never enjoyed my work more, and at the same time had so many things coming at me at once:
rentals, and wedding questions, and pool startups, and door handles, and toilets, and burst pipes, and mice and volunteer projects and poison ivy ...and the list keeps going on.
I told my wife, Shari, I sometime feel like the last guy on the Titanic and I've been given a little sand pail to save the day.
i've come to the understanding that we all must ask for help and Camp Blodgett is in need of help. I ask 2 things:
1. Would you consider sharing this post on your page in search of a seasonal candidate from now until September, that would be an outstanding handyman to get dirty, take the edge off the work, and assist me with keeping a great camp in great condition. Resumes can be sent to me at email@example.com and we can discuss wages at that time.
2. We are desperately hoping to make this seasonal position into a year round position to treat this property and our campers with excellence and justice. If you can't give with labor, would you give with funds to our fund raising campaign, so we can do more good for the children of West Michigan? You can give at:
Like, Share, Love, and Give! Friends, I know you're out there and we ... I could use your help.
