My boss became my friend. How many people can say that? (“Honorable Menschions: Judi Simmons,” Jewish Journal, Jan. 24)
I worked (or some would say “played”) at Camp Menorah for over 30 years. In all that time, Judi Simmons earned my respect and love. She never told me what to do, but always asked if I could take on a task. Who wouldn’t do everything for the benefit of the camp?
Not only did I enjoy my summers at Camp Menorah but at various times my five grandchildren attended as campers. Two of them went on to be counselors. As a final note, my only experience as a camper was the summer I went to Camp Menorah back when it was located in Chelsea.
Thank you for giving Judi her well-deserved accolades.
