Important Administrative Team News!

We hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season and that you’re gearing up for 2024 and all that’s in store. We’re counting down the days until summer, and in the next few weeks, registered families will receive more information regarding paperwork and other summertime logistics. In the meantime, we have some important administrative information to share with you all.


Personnel Changes

Our longtime Office Manager, Louise Dawson, has taken a new job and has stepped down from her Office Manager position with Alleghany. Louise worked tirelessly with us for over a decade, and we are beyond grateful for her years of hard work, dedication, loyalty, and service to Alleghany. It’s been a hard pill to swallow for all of us, but we celebrate her next steps and wish her the best!

Our former Administrative Assistant, Mary-Curtis Powell, is now our Office Manager, and we are thrilled she is joining our team in this position! We welcome her with open arms and are excited to work with her.

And Louise actually isn’t totally disappearing, she will be retaining the part-time role of Financial Manager for Alleghany and will remain behind the scenes on the business side of things. 


Communication Changes

What does this mean for you all as camp families? Mainly communication. Most of you all will be familiar with Louise’s email address, We ask that you discontinue using that email address, as it will only be used moving forward for financial and internal business purposes.

Thank you for partnering with us and let the summertime countdown begin!
