Lions Camp Crescendo Newsletter       December  2016 CAMP NEWS Stanford Lions Club members scheduled a work project day at camp for August 6/7 th .  The group was joined by Gov. Larry and Jennie West from Monticello.  It was a very successful event.  Camp is shining! The lagoon was mowed & weed-eated, the flower beds were weeded, bushes were trimmed, pool patio deck and fence were power washed, windows in the café doors were washed – as were the doors, the porches were swept and a running toilet in medical area was fixed. Meals were provided and the group had an opportunity to see the camp along with the grounds. There were some new members and everyone enjoyed considerable fellowship.  We thank one and all for all their support!  They even delivered a donation of $500.00, then one member donated another $100.00 Etta’s Family Reunion was held from August 11 – 14, with some staying 3 nights and some staying 2 nights.  The families came from Florida, Michigan, Colorado, Ohio, Kentucky and Georgia.  The pool was a big hit and lots of time was enjoyed swimming.  Camp provided the meals for the group, so this gave the ladies a break from cooking.  They are already talking about another reunion in 2 years.  Two participants also made personal donations. We thank them for choosing Crescendo for their site! 2017 Band Camp Dates July 16, 21 – Week #1 July 23-28 – Week #2 Raffle Winner The Raffle drawing was held on October 23, 2016 and the winning ticket was 0109.  The ticket was purchased by the Lexington South Lions Club.

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….” Donations & Gifts Anonymous None Lisa & Tony Bellamy 12/26/16 Debt Can donation of $50.00 Boonesboro Lions Club 12/9/16 Donation of $65.00-split between Ky Lions Youth Camp, Camp Freedom and Camp Heart to Heart DJ Bowers 8/26/16 Donation of recycling lids, 45 gal  trash liners, 33 gal trash liners ($807.50) 10/18//16 Donated Laundry Detergent $7.97 7/20/16 Donated Wasp spray $23.21 11/4/16 Donated  flashlights $111.64 11/4/16 Donated Mop handles & heads $46.10 Bowling Green Noon Lions Club 10/6/16 Donation of $2000.00 e Award Shively Lions Club 9/11/16 Donation of $400.00 T-towels (for Café) Coffee (for Café & Lodge) Straw Brooms (for dorms, plus Café) Bleach (for café & dorm rest rooms) People who love to paint – 1 of 47 dorm rooms done, 46 to go People who love to work on landscaping to make the grounds look beautiful People who love, like, or are willing to clean and wash windows – making things pretty People who love to mow grass, weed eat and trim low hanging limbs
