We managed to assemble most of the volunteers and committee on the steps right after breakfast.
Three Mile Island Camp is a family-oriented facility of the Appalachian Mountain Club. Located on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith, NH, Three Mile Island welcomes AMC members and the general public to summer and fall vacation opportunities. Situated on an island of 43 rocky woodland acres, this shorefront camp offers families a delightful recreational experience in the heart of New Hampshire's lake district. Exploration of the woods, swimming, boating, and conservation programs are just a sampling of the pleasures this island getaway offers. Meals are served family style in a warm, social atmosphere. Three Mile Island camp is open for nine summer weeks and four fall weekends.
End of the day on the dock, closing weekend 2012. The Mount Washington floats by in the distance.

Willem Lange, the host of New Hampshire Public Television's Windows to the Wild, brought a crew to Three Mile Island in July to film an episode of his popular series. Far more than visually capturing the TMI experience, he also wrote down his observations in his syndicated newspaper column A Yankee Notebook. The following article was published in the papers that carry him on July 15. It is reprinted here with Will's kind permission. Please visit his web site, http://willemlange.com, to read his other columns and check for the eventual broadcast date for his Three Mile Island visit.
