In July, Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA welcomed over 160 alumni, parents and staff to Chimney Corners Camp for the 2012 Annual Luncheon. Hosts CEO Phil Connor and Board of Trustee Chair Jack Sharry welcomed special guest speaker and former Camp Becket Executive Director Lloyd Griffith who spoke on taking over the reins following Don Shellenberger.
