Zimmerman marks 6 decades delighting Council Fire audiences

July 29, 2011

EDITOR'S NOTE: This Saturday night, July 30, will mark the last Council Fire performance of this summer. It begins at 9 p.m. in Culver Academies' Bird Sanctuary near the intersection of State Roads 117 and 10.

Dick Zimmerman's Culver career could almost be fodder
for those ancient-sounding recordings which underscore
Council Fire programs at Culver's Woodcraft Camp
each summer Saturday night.
"60 summers ago," the nostalgia-inducing voice might intone, "as the sun rose high in the Maxinkuckee sky, Chief Zimmerman made his first foray into Culver."
