Hall of Famer

23 Jul

If you know anything about DB it’s that he really peaked when he attended Tyler Hill Camp for thirteen summers as a camper, counselor, color war general and eventually administrator. He loved spending his summers in Tyler Hill, PA and has nothing but the fondest memories of his days at camp.

So it really came as no surprise a few months ago when DB got the call that he was being inducted into Tyler Hill’s Hall of Fame.  His impact on the campers, staff and administrators through the years made him a worthy candidate for the class of 2012.

Most of the inductees participated in a smaller ceremony in front of a small group, but DB’s legendary status had him front and center in front of the whole camp.

When it was his time, a long time friend and fellow counselor, Ryan and DB’s favorite camper, Ben, gave him quite the introduction.  After a thunderous applause, DB got up on stage and being the great extemporaneous speaker that he is, delivered an inspiring acceptance speech.  You can check out some pics below, but your best bet is to view the whole thing on YouTube right here.  (Note: We were informed the mic cuts in and out but stick through the video, it’s great!)

The historic plaque where DB’s name will live on forever

Look at that pride

In just a few short months I will be married to a legend.

Can’t wait to display this plaque in our apartment, right next to DB’s math trophy.  Mazel Tov!  xoxo db2be

    Not sure if this works, but nicely done David. I watched the entire video. Pretty fun. Must be nice to be a new plaque owner. 🙂
