Steve Di Campo was diagnosed with lung cancer in July 2010. In December 2010, a benefit was held to help Steve with his battle. I talked several times with Steve after the benefit and he was so overwhelmed with the outpouring of support that he was struggling with putting his gratitude in words. The monetary help was great, but what really blew him away was the number of friends that showed up for him.

The New Castle Cub Scouts Pack 221 really appreciate all the hard work and helping hands from Tom Hays, his maintenance staff, and the Sunlight Mountain Resort ski patrol for making our annual Snowbox Derby another real success. Sunlight is always our favorite mountain, and it’s because of a host of great people who work there. Thanks to everyone.
