Who We Are

We are Sue (Lingelbach) & Hank Schmitt, Tally-Ho'ers during the Camp's seasons of 1956-1961 and 1956-1958, respectively (also respectively, piano & viola and clarinet & sax).

Having stayed in contact over the decades with a small number of other former-campers, in 2004 we decided to see if by using Internet people-search engines we could locate the whereabouts of others who also went to TH. Initially, we had only modest luck, but gradually, helped by more and more information provided by other former-campers successfully reached, greater numbers of former-campers were "found" (to the point that the whereabouts of more than 350 have been determined [see CAMPER PROFILES], a total of more than 50% of all TH'ers through the years). Of those located, more than a third re-met in person at a 2006 reunion week-end in upstate New York that included an emotional afternoon return to the location where Tally-Ho Music Camp had stood [see 2006 REUNION].

A number of those at the reunion brought their instruments, and a wonderful souvenir video-DVD was made of the group playing the Tally-Ho March. That performance can be enjoyed while you are visiting this website [see TALLY-HO RECORDINGS AND VIDEO]. As a result of the wonderful moments shared by everyone during the reunion week-end, our enthusiasm for maintaining the spirit of Tally-Ho now burns brighter than ever.
