“The first camp we have planned this year will be about 30 kids with cerebral palsy,” Seney said. “We will be able to take them from their wheel chairs, place them in the canoes and launch them into the water.”
The Presbytery of the Pines Camp Alabama has been having camps on their grounds for almost 60 years, then in 1990 MedCamps came into the picture bringing special needs children to the camp.
The body of 25-year-old Brandon Barrett, of Ruston, was found within a wooded area alongside Louisiana Highway 33 after the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office received a call from a concerned individual around 11:20 p.m. Wednesday.
On Dec. 13 and 17 kindergartners who attend Glenview and Hillcrest Elementary got a special Christmas treat. Junior Auxiliary of Ruston members visited the students and read a book about Christmas. Students were then surprised with a visit from Santa Claus who gave each child a candy cane and a gift of three books. The children were so excited to see Santa Claus, but this project introduces the children to the joys of reading at a young age.
