This past weekend was the Liberty Lake Foundation’s COMMUNITY DAY, with over 500 of our friends, neighbors and local merchants enjoying a perfect day of fun in the sun. The day was “staffed” by dozens of volunteers from our summer staff, teen leaders, parents and friends- and we raised over $3000 for our foundation. Thanks for all who turned out for this great day- We couldn’t have done it without our volunteers, and the support of our Liberty Lake community! http://libertylakefoundation.org/

And if you missed Community Day, you would have missed the Lazarovici kids hawking Scavenger Hunt tickets for their Mom’s Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Woman of the Year campagin! Camp Mom Andrea Dobin has drawn inspiration from a colleauge who has battled blood cancer, as well as my son Justin- whose 3.5 years of successful treatment is thankfully drawing to an end. “60 Minutes” ran an amazing episode recently describing advances being made in cancer treatments- and much of it has been done with the help of fundraisers like this one. If you would like to support Andrea, the LLS, and cancer research- click here: http://www.mwoy.org/pages/nj/nnj15/adobin
At Liberty Lake, we say that TO LEAD IS TO SERVE, and we try to find ways to give back to the community. Our Teen Leadership Program has terrific guilds and service initiatives that show our teens that giving back is more than just a few lines on their college application- and we hope that all of our initiatives teach the value of giving back to all of our campers.
