September 16, 2014 by Doug Webster

Saturday morning, alumni and families gathered at the Dorset Heritage Museum for a brief presentation program and a chance to tour the many exhibits at the museum including current displays about Camp Otter and other summer camps in the Haliburton/Muskoka area.  Included in the audience were some area residents who knew of Camp Otter and in at least one case, had worked at the Camp as kitchen staff.

During the opening ceremonies, alumni presented Museum Board Members Kerry Lock and Norman MacKay with framed documents:  A biography of beloved camp caretaker and mentor Bill Crewson and his family, and a history of the Camp and its owners and directors from its founding in 1910 to its closing in 1970.  Also donated was the camp’s bell, used to summon campers to the Main Lodge for meals and other important events (kept all these years by Jim Boguslawski) along with a mounting pole and a commemorative plaque, and a paddle signed by all reunion attendees.

After the presentations, alumni and guests spent the rest of the morning touring the museum and enjoying the exhibits.
