Another Space Center Milestone....

Kade's Rank Paper. Our First 21st Century Camper!

Hello Troops,
It happened two weeks ago. A young man walked up to my desk during Overnight Camp Sign In's and presented his Rank Paper.
"Is your name spelled correctly?" I asked.
He looked at the spelling of his name and replied, "Yes."
"Staying overnight or going home?" I asked as I went through my checklist of questions. "Overnight," he said.

I gave him the Rules Paper and directed him to take a seat on the stage steps. That's when I noticed something about his paper I'd never seen before. This young man, Kade, was the very first student from this new century to attend one of our camps.

Last year I saw my first camper with a birthday of 2000. But the year 2000 was the last year of the 20th Century. Kade, was our very very first camper born in the 21st Century.

It's just one of those interesting milestones I thought I'd share with you.

Simply,
Mr. Williamson
