Barton Overnight

Heartland Lions Send Youth to Diabetes Camp

By Lion Carol Greene - The Heartland Lions Club received a request from a family in Sharon, Vermont for financial assistance to send their 7 year old son with severe diabetes to summer camp.  The cost was $1,260.00. I  knew there had to be a way to help this family.   With diabetes he was not able to attend a regular summer camp.  With the help of VLC, Heartland Lions Club and his family we have a happy 7 year old boy headed for Barton's Vermont Overnight Diabetes Camp in South Hero, Vermont.  What a great feeling to be able to say the Lions helped them out. The family was ecstatic with joy and the boy has already started packing for camp.  This is why we are Lions, we help when there is a need!
