BEDFORD – The Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence County will unveil a Limestone block in memory of Camden Moore who passed away in December. The unveiling will be on Friday at 9:30 a.m. in Kari’s Gym.
Camden’s father will be in attendance at the brief ceremony with some of Camden’s friends and those who knew him are encouraged to attend.
“He had such a huge impact on me and I loved being his father, nurturing him along his path, and watching him grow into a humorous little imp,” said Chris Moore, Camden’s father.
“Camden had an infectious smile, he is greatly missed as his time here at the club was always an exciting time,” said Timber Browning Marketing Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence County.
There will also be a Limestone 5K held on July 17 and club officials are looking for volunteers to help with registration and to work the course. If you are interested in volunteering contact the club at 812-279-6123 to sign-up.
“This event helps with members who cannot afford fees. We want every kid in Lawrence County to be able to use our facilities and income should not be a barrier,” said Browning.
If you want to run/walk please register prior to the event in order to get a t-shirt. You can register at runsignup.com/Race/IN/Bedford/Limestone5KRunWalk.
The Playhouse and More Auction will be on July 31st, at the Limestone Unit.
“This event has replaced our Duck Derby. Because we have our mortgage paid off this event will help with afterschool programming as well as programs throughout the summer,” said Browning.
The Club is looking for items to place in the auction. If you or your business would like to sponsor or perhaps donate an auction item or basket, contact Timber at the club.
The club is also planning a Back-to-School Bash at the Limestone Unit. This year, the club is planning on hosting a small carnival for the kids to take part in.
During this FREE event, kids can sign up for the club’s after school program, take a tour of the building, and play games. This will take place on July 27th from 4:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m., at the Limestone Unit.
Donations of candy, school supplies, and small carnival prizes are needed for the event. If you or your business would like to make a donation, please contact Timber Browning and the club.
This years summer attendance has seen an increase in comparison to the 2020 pandemic summer. Only 27 kids were in attendance last year, and now more than 100 children are using the facility this summer.
“It is fun to hear the giggles, and see that the kids are having fun and enjoying themselves at the club,” Browning noted.
