Fond du Lac Evening
Wisconsin Lions Camp
The Lions of Wisconsin own one of the
best camps for disabled persons in the world. Located in Rosholt, just
east of Stevens Point, the 425 acre camp with a 40 acre privately owned
lake, hosts 1,700 children every summer for a totally free week or two
of camping. Programs are for visually and hearing impaired children,
those who are cognitively disabled and now a program for children with
diabetes. The rest of the year the camp is used by disabled adults and
rented out as a retreat center. Visit the camp's website at www.wisconsinlionscamp.com.
The highest honor that the foundation can bestow a Lion or Lioness is the Birch-Sturm Fellowship, which is a $1,000 donation, usually paid for by the member's club, to the foundation's endowment fund. Seven Fond du Lac Evening Lions are Birch-Sturm Fellows: Wayne Bargenquast, Robert Berryman, Charles Browning, Thomas Clausen, Gary Colton, Michael Konen and Gary Silah.
