Sertoma sponsors campers

Staff reports

Carson Valley Sertoma members recently sponsored two Minden youngsters for the four-day Sertoma District Camp Sundowner, near Carson City.

The camp, staffed by 30 volunteers and financed by local businesses and organizations, sends nearly a dozen speech- and hearing-impaired youngsters to the mountains cost-free each year for outdoor and craft activities geared just for them.

Motorcycle riders and other Carson Valley Club members took 10 of their machines for an evening of show, tell, revving and roaring for the youngsters.

Valley children who took part were C.J. Marcotte and Kyle Russell, both 8, from Minden.

Visiting with campers on Sunday were Mary Ann Draper, club president Pat Cardinal, Evan Beavers, Norma Beckerdite, LeAnne Lummus and Mo Draper.

Carson Valley Sertoma also donated $750 recently to the China Spring Youth Camp to support its new expansion.
