Picnic Honoring Irv Burtt at Crystal July 27

July 22, 2013 Published by Neil Topliffe

Irv Burtt has served Crystal well, and now it’s time to thank him for sharing his gifts.  On Saturday, July 27 at Crystal Conference Center, 2365 South Shore East, Frankfort, MI 49635 we will do just that with a picnic beginning at 11:30 AM. 

Irv has volunteered at Crystal for over 20 years.  He has served as the maintenance man (June through August) for Crystal for 12 years, and continued to volunteer yearly during April, May, September and October. He is the one person (other than Brenda and Dick) who knows the operations of the mechanicals of the camp inside and out (literally). 

You are invited to join in the retirement picnic.  Just let Brenda know you are coming by contacting her at, or by calling her at 231/352-9311.  Our plan is to present Irv with a VISA gift card purchased with monetary gifts received.  Would you like to be a part of the gift card?  Send your gift to Brenda at Crystal. Would you like to do something on your own? That would be great too!

Come hear the stories, join in the fellowship and remember why it is that what you do at Crystal stays with you a lifetime.
