Pine Tree Camp Director Has Long-Lasting Love for Camp, Egg Ride
Dawn Willard-Robinson is a ‘lifer’ at Pine Tree Camp. Or as she states it, accepted a full-time position with Pine Tree Camp in 2004 and "stayed forever."
But her association with the camp goes back even further. When she was a college student, back in the '80s, she worked as a counselor at Pine Tree Camp.
And she has passed along the love of Camp to her son, Gareth, who has worked there since he was 15.
Dawn became an Egg Rider 5 years ago and is now a ‘lifer’ as a rider too.
And she brings a passion to the event every year.
Dawn has come up with costumes to wear. Whether it’s a chicken on top of the snowmobile helmet or a cute onesie to put over the snowmobile suits before we "egg up."
Dawn grew up riding snowmobiles with her family, but might be the most cautious -- read slow -- rider that has ever been in the Q106.5 Egg Ride.
She knows that, and requests to be at the back of the pack at the start so she’s not slowing anyone down.
Could be that she is just enjoying winter, her favorite season, and loves being out on the trails inhaling the fresh winter air.
Dawn was on the QJ106.5 Morning Show, sharing her passion for all things Pine Tree Camp this morning, and I.C.Y.M.I.., here’s the audio"
Pine Tree Camp does most of its winter programs in the month of February, so it seems appropriate that The Q106.5 Egg Ride kicks off the month.
Here are the details about everything to do with the event and how to help out Pine Tree Camp with a donation.
If you want to make the donation on Dawn’s Fund Raising page, here is that link.
With snow on the way for tomorrow night and Saturday, it’ll get everyone in the mood for the Ride Saturday, Feb. 5 And maybe the snow will inspire Dawn to push the throttle a little harder this year.
We'd love to see you before or after the ride. Or at the Penobscot Snowmobile Club at the halfway point. They'll have food for sale and a collection of antique snowmobiles to check out Saturday the 5th.
