*** I neglected to mention the surprisingly pleasant weekend before last, where we took the new Scouts on a skill-building camping trip to a wooded area behind Pohick Church (the church where George and Martha worshipped). Normally we spend a long time in the car trying to get out of Washington on a Friday afternoon, but we had just a short ten minute drive to get to our camping area. We had some good training; I cooked a couple of Dutch oven deserts on Friday, and baked a homemade beef pot pie on Saturday. The rain held off and the kids had fun, no injuries, no meltdowns, not crises. Next event is the Project SOAR (Save Our American Resources) Camporee at Sky Meadows State Park.

About the church: Vestrymen George Washington, George Mason and George William Fairfax supervised the construction, which was completed in 1774, just before the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. See more at http://www.pohick.org/history.html.

*** Laura and I traveled to Farmville to take Barbara to visit Longwood University, where she will attend this fall as a freshman. Barbara will be enrolling in a five-year program that will give her a BS in liberal studies, an MS in special education, and a special ed teaching certificate for K-12.

http://www.longwood.edu/CEHS/education/undergraduate/ls_sped/index.htm

It was Spring Weekend at Longwood, and we saw teams playing ooze-ball, which is volleyball in a mud pit. There was a concert that night that we couldn’t stay for, but Barbara really wanted to see Story of the Year (http://www.storyoftheyear.net/).

60.) Senior Writer – Development, Marketing and Communications, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL

Medical Center Development (MCD) at the University of Chicago is a robust and successful fundraising team. This pace is evident in MCD’s recent fundraising accomplishment: fifteen months ahead of schedule, MCD completed its $700M campaign, which is a part of the University’s $2B campaign. We have raised $763M to date. Recently, three donor families made extraordinary gifts – of $25M and greater – to the Medical Center.

The Senior Writer will be working with those creating a forward thinking research agenda commensurate with the University’s stature. These ideas will become the visionary and fundraising themes for a UCMC fundraising campaign of $1B-plus.
