For more than 88 years, the Rotary Club of Akron has sponsored the Rotary camp. This coming summer, more than 1,600 children and adults with disabilities will attend the Rotary camp. Campers will enjoy all the traditional activities you might remember from your own time at summer camp such as swimming, canoeing, arts and crafts, sports and games, team building and most importantly- making lifelong friends and memories. For parents who have a child with special needs, knowing that there is a safe and fun place for your child to attend summer camp is something that puts your mind at rest and heart at ease. Knowing that Joey will get to swim in the lake, make s'mores and stay overnight at a real camp is something that gives Tom and I a great amount of hope and gratitude for what the Akron Rotary Camp has created.
Akron Rotary Camp has an annual awesome fundraiser called the Chili Open. It is held every winter and they have given Cowgirl Up! four Clubhouse passes (a $100 value!) to give away to a reader who would like to attend the Chili Open! All you need to do to enter is either leave a comment or send an email stating why you'd like to attend the Chili Open this year and you will be entered into the random drawing. Results will be posted here and on Facebook next Wednesday. Good luck!
If you aren't into Polar Vortex golfing, join the golfers and spectators as they enjoy all-you-can-eat Whitey's Chili inside the clubhouse.
