"Virtuous Memorial"

12"x9" Oil on GessoBord brand panel   

Camp Merrie-Woode's Chapel is located here (which is to the left just out of site of this vantage point).  The small stone gazebo at the lake's edge is the Orr Memorial dedicated to the man and his wife who founded this wonderful girls camp.  Inside inscripted into the stones at the tops of each pillar are the "Merrie-Woode Virtues" taught each young girl while camping at Merrie-Woode.  Some of the virtues that I can recall are "cleanliness," "courtesy," "generosity," among others.. . I am certain a Merrie-Woode girl can help me out with the others!  :)
