GRINCH STOLE FREEDOM

Waskowitz Outdoor School Winter Wonderland 2012 fundraiser event

We sent photographer Jerry Gay up to North Bend on Sunday, Dec. 2 to check out the Waskowitz Outdoor School Winter Wonderland 2012 fundraiser event.

Anyone who has attended sixth grade in the Highline School District remembers attending Camp Waskowitz and learning about the outdoors.

Now staffers are raising money for outdoor school scholarships for those who cannot afford to attend.

Nostalgic ex-Waskowitz campers and others may donate at 425-888-0681.

In the first photo, Dumit Malacon pleads to get out of jail but The Grinch zealously guards his prisoner. Actually, The Grinch is Dumit’s brother, Tony Malacon and they are raising money for outdoor school scholarships.

In the second photo, Santa (sometimes known as Erick Mickelson of North Bend) and his helper elf, Missy Basnight of Burien were part of the Waskowitz Outdoor School Winter Wonderland 2012 event near North Bend.
