Camp Courageous saddened by passing of Emil Koval

Memorial-Emil KovalCamp was saddened by the passing of Emil Koval, a long-time supporter of the camp personally, and through his wonderful Marion Sunrisers Kiwanis Club.

Emil was a salt-of-the-earth good person, who would give anyone in need, the shirt off his back.  From reading his obituary, he was so much more.  He was an extremely gifted individual with a Masters in Mechanical Engineering.  He was 29-years at Rockwell as a Mechanical Engineer Manager, who was very involved in the Apollo project.  Emil was scheduled to go on the Honor Flight to Washington DC in the coming weeks.  Emil was fluent in Czech, Slovak, and Russian languages.  A brilliant person, who was as common shoe as they come.

Camp Courageous Honorary Board member Pauline Durgin passes

Pauline DurginCamp Courageous Honorary Board Members, Pauline & Jim Durgin were a wonderful couple who touched so many more lives than anyone could ever realize. Here at Camp Courageous they were involved in many projects that really made a difference in the lives of nearly 7,000 campers with special needs who come to Camp each year.

The latest is the Jim & Pauline Durgin Pavilion, being built on the camp’s new Lake Todd. I feel terrible neither Jim nor Pauline lived long enough to see it completed…but wow, what a beautiful legacy they leave behind.

Pauline passed away the day of the Lake Todd dedication, where their Pavilion will be built. Our heart felt sympathy goes out to Pauline’s family and friends.
