We were joined by Ray Rogers from Camp Endeavor to talk about what is going on at the camp. He reported that the camp is in great shape but that they always need our help. He invited all of us to become members of Camp Endeavor.


We were also joined by Garrett Brown, who received a scholarship to the camp last summer that was possible by a donation from the Millennium Sertoma Club.

Garrett was born profoundly deaf. His parents discovered that he was profoundly deaf during a routine visit to the doctor at the age of 9 months. The doctor asked if he was babbling and the family said no. After 2 days of tests, it was discovered that Garrett was profoundly deaf. He now has Cochlar Implants in both ears, and to hear him speak, you would never be aware that he cannot hear. Garrett talked about his experience at camp, his first time away from his family for any period of time. He sharpened his skills with signing at the camp, and had a great time. One of the highlights was lighting a candle and sending it out on the lake their last night. Garrett is looking forward to attending Camp Endeavor again next year.

Garrett was joined at the meeting by his mother Barbara Brown, his father Gary Brown, and Rebecca Hill an ASL teacher.


For those of you that did not make the meeting, it was awesome to see that the money we raise is helping out and appreciated by those that need it. Thanks for joining us Garrett!!
