Gumbo Lunch Fundraiser for Special Needs Campers

LionsClubApplications for a summer vacation full of fun for special needs youth in the Central Louisiana area are now being accepted by members of the Alexandria Lions Club.

The Louisiana Lions Camp is located north of Leesville and will open Sunday, June 1, 2014.  There will be a one-week session for youth with pulmonary disorders, two one-week sessions for the mild mentally challenged ages 8-19, two one-week sessions for youth with diabetes ages 6-14, two one-week sessions for visual, hearing, and orthopedically impaired youth ages 7-19.

There is no cost to the parents for the campers’ stay.  All requests for summer camp are handled locally by Lions and each applicant requires Lion sponsorship.  The Alexandria Lions Club works hard to send as many eligible children as possible and the Club holds many fundraisers to pay for camp tuition.  For example, a Gumbo Lunch Fundraiser is scheduled for February 12th.  Tickets are each and delivery is available for orders over 10.  Orders must be turned in by February 4th.
