In what we hope is one last bit of sad news, we are all thinking of Steve Bolton who was an ever present smile at Point O’Pines Camp for 47 years.
Steve passed away this Saturday after a long period of illness that had kept him from camp last summer, but the Point remained in his heart. Steve kept a collection of Point O’Pines keepsakes close to him throughout his illness. Steve, born in 1948, joined camp’s maintenance staff as a young man of high school age, and continued loyally as long as he could. In his early years, he was known to all for his incredible strength as everyone pitched in to make camp beautiful. Steve was meticulous, reliable and was always there when his help was needed in a way that set a standard for the next generation that had to fill his shoes. He never advertised his contributions, but everyone at camp enjoyed so many of the rewards of Steve’s effort and love for the Point. Steve dedicated his entire career to camp and the campers.
Steve, you will be forever be in our hearts.
