Hi Fellow Betar Campers,
Was just surfing the web (I know, that term really dates me!) on a lazy afternoon and came across the Betar blog. On the next to last pic in Canada, I think I am the ? In the caption.....seated with glasses. I think it was ‘67 or ‘68. Very fond memories of the Canada trip (sneaking out of camp, soccer game, etc) and also of the entire summer.
Best to all,
Leo Bressman
