Membership remains a key emphasis with the YAA and your participation and attendance at Yawgoog Days is important. Our founder, H. Cushman “Gus” Anthony led and guided us for years. It is now time for following generations to become actively involved and insure that the YAA continues to be a strong voice in carrying out the work and dedication of our founder.
Mark your calendar for YAA’s 37th reunion! Contact everyone you know who camped at Yawgoog and encourage them to attend. Reach out to former Yawgoog staff members and invite them to attend as well.
