Looking for Wel-Met Memorabilia!

Are you still holding onto old Wel-Met stuff?

I am looking for anything W/M related that you'd be willing to share with me for a few months. I'm looking for pictures from all locations and divisions- from the 30's, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s- preferably with dates but that's not essential. Does anyone have a picture of the old "Pebble Park" from Barryville or Herman's in Yulan? Do you have copies of letters or postcards that you sent home as a camper? old western trip schedules? Were you on the only W/M European trip and have some pictures? Do you have a bunk schedule (remember program planning?), a "work wheel", camper lists, staff lists, your end of summer camper evaluation, canteen lists, your card from the Infirmary, scripts of camp plays or from Friday Night Cultural Arts Programs or Forum, or a W/M songbook? Do you have an old "Mess Kit", W/M pencils, banner or anything "official" written on W/M stationery? Do have one of those rare engraved W/M ashtrays? I'm looking for everything and anything Wel-Met. Nothing is too insignificant. If you've got it, I want to borrow it for a few months.

If you have something you are willing to share, please e-mail me at MHMCMWB@aol.com. I promise 2 things-1)I will reimburse you the cost of sending it to me and, 2) I will return it to you in several months in the condition in which it was received.

Thanks.

I recently had dinner with friends from junior high school and earlier. One had actually saved the letters we'd all written each other as kids, including ones I'd sent from Wel-met. It was mind-blowing to me, seeing myself as a 12 year old, but may be painfully boring to you.

Would you be interested? Will you accept photocopies?


I also have the history of Wel-met that I got at the silent auction at the reunion in NYC a couple of years ago. Are you interested in that?

We only shipped home the good stuff

Hey Marty,

I'll put together a package of some historic memorabilia. Don't hold your breath on the ashtrays. No one is gonna lend one of those. Too rare.

Marty:

I have a sealed package of parking passes from 1975. We never distributed them and I carried them around the world once or twice. Also, the universal joint and a small piece of drive shaft from the 1954 Chevrolet pick-up that served Silver Lake until my driving took it out of commission in 1974. In addition, I have pdf versions of several camper lists and a newsletter or two. And the piece de resistance - a complete set of AA keys (copies, not the originals) along with two official boat hooks. I can't part with the brass one but you are welcom to the stainless steel one. I"ll email you directly.
