Lions Camp Crescendo Newsletter        August   2017 CAMP NEWS March 4 – Steven Bliss and Michael Wilmore came into camp and took a chain saw to cut up/remove a large tree from the road in the parking lot at the base of the Office building. They also removed a tree back at the bridge on field 9. They camped out overnight and then worked on the culvert back at the field 9 bridge – this will go on hold till it dries out due to standing water at the creek.  These two men are married to Billie and Don Flannery’s granddaughters.  In addition, they helped Tony Bellamy (son-in-law) install some security cameras. May 20 – Steven Bliss, Michael Wilmore and Don Flannery worked on the Cafeteria ceiling and replaced some 2 X 4 ceiling tile.  March 4 – Hanna Moore and Zach Hayes visited camp to turn in funds from a fund raiser they set up with Culver’s in Lexington to help Camp Freedom.  They raised a total of $1200.00 on the project. Hanna and Zach have been counselors at Camp Freedom for a number of years. They did another fundraiser in Lexington with City BBQ which raised $54.20  We thank both of them for all their work. Feb. 25 - Kati Badgett held a fundraiser in Louisville to help Camp Freedom – it was with City BBQ on Hurstborne Ln. (Louisville) – the fundraiser total raised $100.09 – the check was received on March 27, 2017.  We thank Kati for her work with this project to help Camp Freedom. March  – Daniel Coe spent numerous hours in revising the application (both camper & counselors) for all three camps. We needed to place certain data elements in a consistent location to reduce data entry time. We have significantly expanded the medical data section to aid in improving the first day medical check in process. We truly thank him for tackling this significant work project. April – PDG Evelyn Vaughn and Lion Billie Flannery visited two Lions Clubs – the Louisville Downtown Lions Club and the South Oldham Lions Club.  We appreciate the invitations to visit.  We enjoyed good food and Lions fellowship.  The memory of the cup cakes at Louisville Downtown and the BBQ at South Oldham remain. June 24  & July 1 – Steven Bliss & Michael Wilmore worked on the step down ramp going to Sousa Pavilion – landscape timbers were placed down the hill and gravel placed in the tiers.  This is a big help in going to the lake. Sharing Comments – reasons to go to camp. . . “ My Foster children were accepted and attended Camp Freedom last year and they have not stopped talking about it.” From a Mother of two 2016 counselors – “This camp has been life changing for them and they wouldn’t miss it!  I hope  to add their sister this year” Another  Mother – “Last year 3 of my foster children went and they loved it and they are still talking about it and begging me to send them again this year.” From a Mommy & Papa “She loved going to camp last year and has been talking about it all year. She’s made amazing progress this year partly I believe due to her time at camp. She wants to be better so she can keep going to camp.” A Memory from a retired Counselor “A blind camper ask me to take him outside before bedtime and to describe to him what I saw up there”.  What a memory!  As you might expect this counselor remains strongly connected to camp. Camper has been a Dad instead of a brother to his three sisters and he needs to figure out how to be a kid. Camper needs time away from her autistic brother and another brother who has anger issues. Camper has been there before and really enjoyed it. It has allowed him to learn to follow along with the other kids and be independent. Camper had anger issues but improves everyday. He looks forward to this camp every year. Camper needs to interact with other children. Living with grandparents she does not get to play with others her age in the summer. Thanks to Our Counselors, Director, staff and all the faithful volunteers for these results.  Thanks everyone! 2017 Board Meetings for Lions Camp Crescendo are … October 1 December 10 Executive Meeting 2:00 PM & Main Meeting 3:00 PM Memorial Gifts Betty Belna (sister of Bill Barna) Lion Bill Barna Don & Billie Flannery June Parker (wife of PDG Larry Parker) PCC Don & Billie Flannery Don Schilling, of Lexington  PCC Don & Billie Flannery R.

Top Tips on “How to Be Deaf Aware” Following the tips will allow you to communicate with those individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing. Avoid standing in front of a light when speaking Make sure you have the person’s attention before speaking. Stand a normal distance from the person Do not cover your mouth or have anything in your mouth when you are speaking Look directly at the person you are speaking to and maintain eye contact Speak clearly, at a normal pace Repeat the statement, then re-phrase if the person is unable to hear the words spoken Use shorter, simpler sentences if necessary Do not shout Use gesture, facial expression and body language to assist with communication Be patient and take time to communicate Try writing down a couple words or a phrase to clarify if communication is difficult Remember that just because a person can hear your voice, does not mean they can understand your words When writing back and forth, keep  your word choices simple and sentences short.  If the person understands you well and uses more complex sentence and vocabulary, you may do the same. Take your clue from the deaf person. When using an interpreter, speak directly to the deaf person. When the interpreter voices what the deaf person signs, look at the deaf person, not the interpreter. Avoid saying…. “Tell him….” Grants 1/25/2017 - AIDS Services Center Coalition Inc awarded a grant for Camp Heart to Heart.

They will be hustling back to camp to head out for Corbin to pick up 4 pallets of glasses for Lion Dick Clark of the Shively Lions Club. Lion Dick and these glasses will soon be traveling out on mission trips to various countries to assist with eye care service for people in need. The glasses were going to be disposed of tomorrow if no one could take them quickly. The availability of the glasses was shared by PDG Mike Pawula.  What a wonderful opportunity – the glasses are prescription and also have nonglare glass.  This  project involved three Districts – 43C,  43N and 43T. When the guys got back to camp, Ralph Whitehouse (Ron’s neighbor) and Lion Billie Flannery helped unload 2 pallets.  The other two are still on the trailer. The end result is that much service will be provided to many people by Lions working together!  Thanks one and all! The Camp Season Ends but… There  is a lot going to be taking place here at Lions Camp Crescendo during September. The roofs were damaged by hail and yes, the buildings were covered by insurance. The shingles will be arriving real soon and a roofing crew will be coming in to get the job done. The job is expected to take three weeks. There are many volunteer opportunities available,  two big jobs for the fall (depending upon the weather) and the spring will be interior and exterior painting projects.  Are you good with a paint brush?  Would these be a good Club project for your Club?  We can put you up and we will feed you!  Call Camp if you are interested – (502)833-4427 or Call Lion Billie (502)938-1619.
