at MDA camps
Jacquie Palka and Erin Dugan, recent 2012 Romeo High School graduates, once again volunteered at a Muscular Dystrophy camp held in Lexington earlier this summer. Danielle Couch, incoming senior in the fall, volunteered at a MDA camp held in Toledo, Ohio.
All the teens were assigned as counselors to young boy campers who are living with Muscular Dystrophy. The camp is provided by MDA with no cost to the campers to attend. Donations through the year make camp possible and provide activities that these children would otherwise not have.
The camp is for children 6-17 years old and features fun such as swimming, archery, assisted tree climbing, casino night, arts and crafts, scavenger hunt, water fights, horse back riding, a dance and many other fun activities.
Local "Critter Lady," Andrea Gaw Szewczyk, brought her critters to Lexington to provide a presentation to the campers.
Donations to the camps were made by local businesses Sheena's Marketplace, Heidebreicht Chevrolet, Tees and Things and the local Dairy Queen.
