Message to Campers from Kathy Sommer Zimpfer

Hello Fiddleheads Campers, 


After long consideration it is with sweet sadness that I have decided to end my time as co-organizer of Fiddleheads Camp. This is merely a matter of putting my energy elsewhere after 23 years. I had planned to make an announcement during the camp weekend but that couldn't happen. Because this had been on my mind, last year we included Melissa Bragdon Caron in the camp preparations even though the camp weekend fizzled due to Covid. Melissa began learning the ropes and she is now on board as my successor. So Ellen and Melissa will be your new organizers!  


As you would assume, I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the camp grow through the years and am deeply pleased that the camp is valuable and exciting and that we have all made such wonderful music and friendships. I am completely, utterly proud of how Ellen and I have worked so amiably together through the years and be assured that our personal and musical friendship continues on happily.  


I'll miss you all!  Hopefully you'll miss me too but now that the digital age is with us in full force I am accessible and will contribute to the camp if I am needed – maybe as a coach! Please welcome Melissa into my place.


I will certainly consider being part of this year's weekend by Zoom or could even stop by in person if I am in New Hampshire at that time.


Thank you for so many wonderful weekends everyone!
