A Gauger Family History,

On the 15th of August 1912, Karl Frederich Gauger arrived at the port of New York aboard the SS Barbarossa from Bremen, Germany intent on starting a new life in America. He made a home in Rochester, NY thus laying roots for the Gauger family to grow - and grow it has.

Dumping Love on the Baldowski Family

Huber 3.0.jpg

July 18th, 2019

A few weeks ago, the Dump Love community put on another incredible weekend of music, art, love & friendship, June 28th-30th. This year’s event was to benefit the family of Mr. Chris Baldowski; a man who was tragically injured as a child, leaving him quadriplegic. Throughout the weekend, all of the folks at Huber 3.0 banned together and manged to raise a grand total of $6,029 for the Baldowski Family! Huge shout out to Collene Bielemeier who pours her heart, time and nerves into an event which benefits others so greatly. Special mention to Scott Huber for his help in organizing this event. Scott was the original inspiration for the Huber events. Next year however, expect to see a change in event title as the ‘Huber’ will be dropped, officiating the transition from small birthday celebration to full on charity BANGER. Everyone involved in this event comes in with smiles and radiating positive energy and love. That energy lingers around The “G” Lodge and makes it that much more special for the next people who step foot on the property. We’re delighted to welcome Dump Love back out to The “G” Lodge next year and hopefully no one will lose their phones in the port-o-potties this time. Cheers.

A Successful Work Weekend at The “G” Lodge


May 13th, 2019

This past weekend, May 10th & 11th we were humbled to welcome over two dozen volunteers out to The Lodge to lend a hand getting ready for the 2019 summer season. With their help we built three raised bed vegetable gardens to feed this seasons artists and event staff, three booths for our new ‘Carnival For a Cause’ area which will serve to raise money for our charity partners. We moved hills and leveled lands to create more space for RV camping. We cleared wooded areas to make room for more tent camping and so much more. Thank you to everyone that came out and made this weekend a success!
