Fulton Sunrise Rotarians Hear About Camp Good Days


Rotarian Peggy Donnelly, right, introduced Debbie Allen at a recent Fulton Sunrise Rotary Club meeting.  Allen presented a program about Camp Good Days and Special Times,  a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life challenges.  Children with Cancer or who have a family member with Cancer can spend a week at this Camp located on Keuka Lake.  There are also Oncology Camp weekends for adults.  In 1979, with the help and support of many friends and community members in Rochester, New York, Gary Mervis founded Camp Good Days and Special Times, Inc., in honor of his daughter.  Camp Good Days & Special Times is the largest organization of its kind for children with cancer in the entire country. With offices throughout Upstate New York and Central Florida, it has accomplished all of this without ever taking one dollar of government funding.  Since its inception, Camp Good Days has served more than 42,000 campers from 22 states and 25 foreign countries.        The Fulton Sunrise Rotary meets every Friday at 7 AM at Fulton's Riverside Inn.
