Many thanks for help, support of Camp Prov day camp

As the president of the Providence General Children’s Association, I have the honor of representing more than 300 guild members and hundreds of other volunteers who work year-round to raise money to support the health care needs of children in our community. One of the things we are extremely proud of is our involvement in Camp Prov, a day camp for children with special needs and their siblings.

As the last camp supply is packed away for the year, and the Camp Prov banner is lowered at Forest Park, I want to express my gratitude to our volunteers and donors for helping make the camp a spectacular success. Thanks to the support of a generous community, amazing staff and incredible volunteers, nearly 400 children experienced Camp Prov this year.

I wish I could bottle the laughter and share the sunny summer smiles of the children in attendance to share with each of you. I hope my heartfelt thank you will suffice.

Mary Lou Finley, president

Providence General Children’s Association
