Dunwoody Serves Ice Cream at Camp Corral

On June 13, 150 campers, children of military parents enjoyed ice cream dessert served by Dunwoody Rotarians. The camp is sponsored by Camp Corral, an organization that gives a free week of camp to children whose military parents are wounded, ill, or fallen. Six Rotarians - Louise and Ron Barnes, Roy and June Wise, Fred Bounds, and Bill Kelly -traveled to Winder, Georgia and Camp Twin Lakes with ice cream and toppings donated by Costco.

The stars were the campers. Rotarians arrived early and witnessed the American flag being retired for the night while 150 campers stood quietly at attention. They are patriotic citizens. When it came time for dessert campers not only volunteered to serve but also to clean up. They are an impressive group. It was the final night of camp and the noise level was extremely high, for campers had bonded during their six days together.
