On May 4, 2002, a new pool at Kamp Kiwanis was dedicated to the memory of Peter J. Haller.
The pictures at left show the pool being enjoyed during the 2003 Kamping season.
Haller was the brother of Steve Haller, who served many years on the board of the New York District Foundation. Peter Haller was an insurance executive who spent his life in the New York City area. He and his wife, Diane, have three daughters, Jeanne, Judy and Elizabeth.
A member of the National Guard, he began working for the American International Group (AIG) in 1960, rising to the post of senior vice president of marketing. Upon his death, letters poured in from around the world, from co-workers and others he'd known while traveling for AIG.
After Pete's death, the family started a foundation in his memory.
"Uncle Steve (Haller) told us about Kamp Kiwanis and the need for a new pool, everything seemed to fall into place," said Haller's daughters just before the pool opened.
