WWATS Lion's Camp June 18-19, 2014 Kerrville, Texas

Here is  a little information on one of the organizations our Club supports – the Lions Camp. The date for the annual Lion’s Camp Metal Detecting Session has been set for June 18-19th.  The Lion’s Camp has been providing camping experiences, at no charge, to children with disabilities since 1949.  The Summer Camp detector mentoring was initiated about 17 years ago by two gentlemen, Mr. Noland Underwood and Mr. Keith Wills.  Last year our Club had the most volunteers of any other Club participating – way to go SAAMDC!  Each year we collect and donate foreign coins that are covered over for the kids to detect, find and keep.  Last year they also had small metal toys.   Donations of foreign coins can be given to Don Crawford or Don Bowker at the May and June meetings. The detectors are provided – all you have to do is show up!  There are plenty of counselors present with the kids to ensure everything runs smoothly.  The first day historically is a full day and the second day a half day – we will get the exact times and direction to the camp out at a later date.  Meanwhile, think about joining your fellow Club members at Lions Camp this year – like Don Crawford has said many times,  “You will get more out of the experience than you can imagine”.  We were able to attend for the first time last year and it was WELL worth the short drive to participate.  Jim & Linda
