Changes for 2017

2017 Theme

LIVE WINNI — Sharing Our Treasures
Building off of our 100th Anniversary celebration last year and our theme of “Live Winni” – this year’s theme encourages the exploration of how our Winni experience nurtures us during the week to “Live Winni” during the year. “Sharing Our Treasures” asks how is it that we share who we are – our culture, values, beliefs, and resources with one another to nurture and support one another and how we can continue to grow to “share our treasures” in uncertain and challenging times. Please use the theme to help you shape your focus for the week and to inspire conversation and learning from one ...

I was Thinking

A Hundred Years from Now

This is a snapshot of an article that appeared in
the "Post GEMS" for 2016
full article here.

I was thinking, it was, indeed, a grand celebration this year of our 100th Anniversary. ... [and] how I don’t know the names or actions of the folks who founded NNESRE 100 years ago. And I wondered what they would think if they if they were to have attended our conference this year.
. . .
100 years from now, folks really won’t know too much about us. ... Hopefully our great-great-great grandkids will still be coming to Winni and will just be saying “our family has always come here.” ...if you are the GEMS Editor in 2116, and you are poking ...

Build Camaraderie & NNESRE funds  

Dearest dear Winnites, (I don’t throw the double dear around very often so you know this is an important occasion!) Now is the time for all good Winni-ers to come to the aid of your NNESRE.  We have a special year and we don’t come around knocking too often – so please hear my awesome opportunity of a pledge drive.

We are using the occasion of NNESRE’s 100th Anniversary to have a FUN-RAISER!  What’s the difference between a Fundraiser and a Fun-Raiser, you ask?  For the traditional "raiser," you give till it hurts — for this, give just to be part of the party!  This is not a high stress, high stakes request – but one to ...

Dean Survey

July 6, 2016 @ 10:52 AM

Hello Winnites,

Here we go again with an “I have a Winni Dream” idea and I need everybody’s help – whether you are going to camp this year or not, and it will only take 2 minutes of your time.  I would like to put together a Powerpoint presentation with a scrolling vision of what Winni means to everyone and some of your favorite Winni memories.  That’s it and it’s that easy! 

So I would like to ask you to...  — EVERYONE – especially folks who aren’t going to camp so we can include you in this.


Take a deep breath n’ relax.  ∞  Put yourself in a Winni state o’ mind...

Still room for more!

July 1, 2016 @ 6:00 PM

We have grown to 299 campers! But there is still room for more! — up from 276 last year. I have Stateline (1), Trees (1), Geneva Woods, and tenting available. Please don't forget to give generously to the scholarship fund (we are about 50% there) and send in those final payments by July 15th (we are about 45% there).

Also, we have been given the go ahead to sell single cabins in Geneva Woods for $650 each (they sleep 8 people, which is only $81.25 per person!).

Thanks, Leslie
Business Manager
