Dinner and House Concert featuring Philmont staff alum Tom Munch
Hosted by Cathy & Finn Hubbard at their woodland home in rural Middleton
Cathy Stoddard Hubbard, Philmont Staff 1976-77
Their sons, Karl & Matt Hubbard, have each accepted a camp director offer for the upcoming summer.
Tom’s original mountain & prairie inspired music is the kind we Philmont folks know and love.
His repertoire spans jazz, folk, classic rock,R & B, children’s and rare historic songs.
Recently, Tom served as musical director for the “Song of Pueblo” oratorio, a musical-visual history of Pueblo, Colorado.
The Munch family provided noteworthy service to Philmont. Tom worked at Philmont from 1978-81; his sisters, Carol and Jane, were a couple of the first women Philmont Rangers.
- Please bring a dish to pass for dinner.
- Donations to defray Tom Munch’s travel expenses are welcome.

UW Arboretum Hike & Refreshments
Meet at the McKay Center for an hour-long walk in the 1200 acre forest and restored prairie (we’ll do this regardless of the weather–it’s unlikely to be more formidable than an August monsoon in Colfax County). Julie and Jason live nearby and invite you to come by after the hike for a little warmer-upper.
Jason “Mort” Mascitti, 1975-81 & Julie Huiras, 1980-82
Dinner at Quaker Steak and Lube
Combined staff association reunion dinner for Philmont and Sommer’s Canoe Base.
Quaker Steak is family-friendly & has a varied, delicious menu. Historically, there have been great conversations between our two camps.

For the Weekend…
Outdoor activities hinge on the weather: skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding OR biking, picnic, and a paddle on Lake Wingra could all be possible during an early March Wisconsin winter…we will have to see what nature brings us that day!?
While downtown, it is always nice to visit the Capitol building and shop the eclectic stores on State Street, or take a look at the Big Ten
University of Wisconsin Madison on the shore of Lake Mendota.
