Softball teams made up from members of Kiwanis Clubs in Nassau County will play two games July 10 and Aug. 21 that will benefit Kamp Kiwanis. Peter J. Owens, lt. governor of the Long Island North; David Rothman, lt. governor of the Long Island South Central Division and Rick Levine, lt. governor of the Long Island Southwest Division of Kiwanis International have joined together to raise money for capital improvements at Kamp Kiwanis, a sleep-away camp for disadvantaged girls and boys ages 8-14 located in upstate Taberg about six miles northwest of Rome, NY.
The two games will be played under the lights at MacLaren Field, Loring Road in Levittown at 7 p.m. The Town of Hempstead field includes aluminum bleachers, refreshment stand and rest rooms. Kiwanis members invite Nassau County residents to come out and support these two important fund raisers. There is no admission charge, however, donations for a fifty-fifty raffle and the sale of refreshments will benefit the "kamp's" capital improvement fund.
The Aug. 21 game being billed as a "family picnic night" will feature entertainment for the youngsters who attend. Barbecued hot dogs, hamburgers and roasted corn on the cob, salads, ice cold watermelon and beverages may be purchased from Kiwanis members manning a huge grill and refreshment stand. This year's picnic will include a Merrick-based clown group to entertain the youngsters who attend. Susan C. Ganey, governor of the New York District of Kiwanis International from Hamburg, is expected to attend and throw out the first pitch at the "Family Picnic Night." For further information about the games, call Mike Lozito, chairman, at 735-3810.
