Centerpieces, Awards and Dancing!

 Karol has been working on centerpieces for our new theme meal - Pep Rally.  This theme will kick off camp each week with a red versus blue themed meal.  A new theme means all new decorations for the dining hall.  When deciding on new decorations, we have been looking to the future needs of when we are on our own grounds.  Our new dining room will have round tables, which will be very conducive to centerpieces, so that’s been the focus.    So, on the cheap and from scratch.....I present Pep Rally centerpieces!

 The Italian theme is being brought back by popular demand.  So some pasta inspired centerpieces will now grace our tables.

 We are so proud to announce that Ruth Hucek was awarded a Young Philantropist award for 2014, by the Marinette and Menominee Area Community Foundation.  Camp Daniel nominated Ruth, who we recognize as a young volunteer who transforms her community for the better.  Her hours of volunteering at Camp Daniel made her a great recipient for this award.    At the same award ceremony, Camp Daniel received a grant for $1,035 for dorm bunk bed mattresses.

 The annual Dance for Disability, commonly known as D4D was held Saturday, June 7th, at the Bay Beach Pavilion.  We were pleased that we had approximately 250 people in attendance.  Invites and announcements went out to area group homes, and workshops for people with disabilities.  People came from all over the area for a free meal and lots of great dancing.  The dance is for people with disabilities, their families, caregivers and friends.  It’s a great way for everyone to get together and have some fun.
