|The calm before the storm
By the end of the day, over 700 children and counselors from the Greater Boston area had made it to the BCYF Curley Center for face painting, fishing, swimming and a hot dog lunch. I was on the welcome committee out front, checking people in and helping groups that might have gotten a little lost on the way to the beach. It was really cool to so many groups that have come out on All Access back again for the Bash, and I know the kids all had an amazing time.

Before rushing into the cool water and making an enormous splash, David Coffin led all the children and staffers in a rousing rendition of "Haul Away Joe" (even though his voice was a little off) and Will Clark joined in with his famous Save the Harbor rap -- I'm sure all the kids were singing it on the bus rides home.
