On Aug. 25, 2013, Ann Wassmer passed away at the age of 97. She was the former president of the Garden City League and for more than 16 years, spearheaded various efforts to help raise funds primarily in support of Camp Helen Keller.
The Garden City resident retired from the league in 2006 but attended all of their events as well as the annual Camp Helen Keller show in Farmingdale.
The Garden City League for Helen Keller School for the Blind was the oldest and last league to raise funds for the agency. The league was formed in May 1961 and over the years raised more than $580,000 for Camp Helen Keller. It held its final meeting June 2009.
