Ellen, you're taking me to places "where no woman has gone before...", at least I sure haven't. This website is amazing. Can we add Leslie Rosenblum,  Paula Kaplan, Noreen Galitin, Susie Shapiro, Suzie Sacks, Paula Steinberg, Inez Arenstough (sp?) to our missing link? Thanks sooooo much!

Ellen and Barb,

This was my first time visiting the website. It totally blew me away. Kudos to both of you for creating the site, and slide show. It brought back so many warm memories. I only wish that I had grabbed my 'yearbooks' when my parents moved in the late 1970's and my mom tossed the books. I was living in Cincinnati at the time, and forgot to remind her to hold on to the books for me. But looking at this, as I have already said, brought back lots of good memories, that I will always hold close to my heart.

Be well,

Barb Milter

The slideshow, with the tearjerking music - ah - the braided girls that were and are still us. Thank you Barb.

Just got a chance to watch the whole video that Barb put together. I am so moved and in awe of this gorgeous expression of the joy and friendship that we felt and still feel when it comes to Wingfoot. Many blessings to Barb and anyone who contributed to this. Thanks and love,

Just want to inform you that my fabulous friend Ellen Bernstein (Godolphin) passed away last year.  She was trying to find Mimi Becker- does anyone have any info about her? Also Paula Kaplan.

Ellen Ehrenreich (Barker) (1967)


Thank you for joining and letting us know about Ellen Bernstein's passing. So very sorry. Mimi Becker is on this site and on LinkedIn, so you can reach her at either. I don't have any information about Paula Kaplan.

Diane, I am sorry to hear about Ellen.  I hope you are well.  I'm still in Chevy Chase.

Diane,  Sorry to hear about Ellen. I remember her well from Wingfoot days. Those friendships were the strongest. 

Lshana tova to you and your family. Not sure where you all live since the Buffalo diaspora. I am in Naples Florida after 40 years in Boston.  Wendy is also in Naples and Michael is in LA.

Hi Ellen,


I am in Elba, Italy, met a woman from Pittsburgh & in less than 2 minutes, figured out that we

had both gone to Wingfoot at the same time. She is from Pittsburgh,

Sarah Rosen. She is 4 years younger than us & she remembers Marty Heil.

How do I post this on our FB page?


06/07/15 01:25 PM #20    

Ellen Ehrenreich (Barker) (1967)


Any member of the Wingfoot FB group can post on the page. So you can put it here. Let me know if you can't figure it out and I can post it for you.

Hello, 1966-1972 Wingfoot Staff

I have been a very passive participant on the Wingfoot website that Ellen took an incrdible number of hours to establish for us.  I will check in more often now that I'm retired .

Not sure what I'll be doing with the majority of my time, but, isn't that the point of retirement?

Take care, my friends.  I'll be reading the message board every few weeks.

So great to hear from you Marcy.  I think you may be the first staff member to join in.  Sounds like you are doing well.  Happy retirement.

Sara Swicegood

Hello to all Wingfooters from 1966-1972


I just ready Marcy's response and I agree. Ellen, you did a fantastic job getting this together. I too have retired and am loving it. Playing lots of golf and wishing I could play every day! It is so great to remember all the great times at WIngfoot. It was a very special time in my life. I would love to hear from any campers or staff that share memories with me.

Wingfooters are a special group of ladies.

Great to reconnect, Sara, with you and other Wingfooters. 

Since I was never able to attend camp as a child, the experience

as an adult was critical for me. My days as a counselor, to

working with Jan Dale & Smiddie on programming, made me a

better teacher & coach during the year!

Thank you to Carol Heil, counsellors & campers! The Wingfoot

Family and those memories have positively impacted every

phase of my life!

Love you, still. 

Marcy (1966-72)

Wendy Haas (Patterson) (1970)

Hi Campers!  I was so excited to see posts from Marcy and Sara recently.  Both were my close friends for

all those summers at WIngfoot.  Wingfoot had a very important influence on my life, in every aspect.

I have only a few pictures, but my memories are wonderfully vivid.  Since my camp days, I have

always enjoyed working with children.  As an empty nester, I have re-discovered horseback riding

(English, of course) and am the proud Mommy of a quarter-horse, Petie. Petie and I jump and show

locally here in Florida. I remember my Boots and Saddles Days as I tack up my horse and work on

my equitation.  I have also discovered my artistic side.... even though I have ALWAYS loved "arts and crafts..."

My main focus is animal portraits: cats, dogs and...... horses.....  It's a passion. 

Every summer, I go to "Camp Wendy."  We have only one camper (me),  but the activities are much like they

were back at Wingfoot..... including REST period!!   I miss you all.... please stay in touch.

Hi Wendy,

Just curious, where do you live in Florida? I'm in Weston. Nice to hear about you! So exciting to hear that you're riding again!

Warmest Regards,
