The pandemic dealt a mighty blow to the Windham-Tolland 4-H Camp, forcing it to close in-person camp in the summer of 2020. Board members, staff and 4-H friends donated extraordinary hours of service this past year to keep the camp afloat and ready to re-open for campers June 2021.
At this year’s virtual annual meeting of the Windham County 4-H Foundation, two local businesses were given Community Spirit Awards to acknowledge their extremely generous support during this difficult year.  Both businesses were recently awarded plaques to display that recognize their efforts.
Buck’s Soft Serve offered the Windham-Tolland 4-H camp the opportunity to sell water to patrons of their rich ice cream concoctions.   The $1 price was often rounded up to $10 by generous patrons.   The donations jar to support the camp was in prominent display at the check- out area and owners Judy Buell and Emilie Hebert were also frequent contributors.  
Buzzy Balogh of Mansfield Tree Service donated many hours of crews and equipment service clearing dead trees away from buildings, the ropes course and the walking paths to make the campus a safer place.  As an added bonus, volunteers and staff cut up the downed trees and sold cords of firewood to make some extra money to pay the bills.
