Spotlight on Pa Cope
Pa Cope In honor of  the Rye Y's Centennial, we are linking to a July, 1954 Reader's Digest article about Pa Cope.  

The Most Unforgettable Character I've Met  by William L. Wild 

In suburban New York, there have been many dogs named Bingo and Ognib (which is Bingo spelled backward). They have all belonged to small boys who won them as prizes in bingo games at Camp Mohican, the camp in the Adirondack Mountains run by the Rye YMCA: "Every boy should have a dog," Louis Cope, founder of the camp, used to say. And in his lifetime Pa Cope brought hundreds of boys and dogs together. 


For 30 years Pa Cope was general secretary of the " Y." He was always doing things for boys. They were his life.
