“Programs like this enhance the lives of everyone involved,” was how Janet DeAngelis explained her and others long running involvement in the Frank Staus Day Camp for the Blind sponsored by the Aston Township Lionesses. Each year at the end of July, early August, the Lionesses have put on the camp with the help of the Lions, Leos, and the grand children of the more senior members. The Camp originally held on the grounds that are now occupied by Sun Studios eventually moved to its current home the banquet hall in the American Legion 926. The camp is available to blind residents all throughout Delaware County at a cost of $20.00 for the week and the transportation back and forth each day is provided by Pennsylvania Association for the Blind.
Each day the campers are treated to an educational program, entertainment, and a wide menu of food options. Trivia games, a flea market, crafts, bingo, a pizza day, and a BBQ sponsored and prepared by the Aston Lions Club are just some of the things campers do while attending. Mrs. DeAngelis would like to thank everyone who takes part and helps make this camp such a great week.
