Lake Family Resource Center would like to thank the many people involved in the “All That” Camp for Girls during June. Lake County residents and organizations came together during the last week of June to give 53 local girls, ages 11 through 15, the opportunity to participate in a week long camp designed especially for them.

Double Platinum level sponsors included the Delta Iota Tau Sorority and the Lakeport Main Street Association, each donating $1,500. Platinum sponsors included the Konocti Lioness Club, Lake County Children’s Council, Yuba College CLAS, Middletown Lioness Club, Anita Gordon, Center for Healing Integration, Clearlake Oaks Women of the Moose, Coyote, Beverly Bergstrom, Garett and Katherine Law of the Retired Teachers Association, and Clearlake Veterinary Clinic. Gold Sponsors included Clearlake Oaks-Glenhaven Business Association, Lakeport Lions, and Carol & Steven Schepper. Silver and individual sponsors included: Shore Line Realty, Girlfriends-Clearlake, Narley Dude Ranch, Loyal Order of the Moose No. 2284, Soroptimist of Clear Lake, Dr. James Kinsell, DDS, Dufrain Publishing, Bill Ruehmann, Chief Kevin Burke of the Lakeport Police Department, Richard and Kathy Freeborn, and Aggie Berry.

As with any activity of this size, nothing would have happened without the many volunteers. One hundred and six community members worked to make the camp a success, including 26 members of the planning committee (a sub-committee of the Lake Domestic Violence Prevention Council).

Thank you so much to the following people for helping bring this camp to the girls of Lake County: Liberty Perry, Renee Griffin, Kayla Hickey, Katrina Hickey, Vicki Hays, Holly Ari, Leslie Lovejoy, Lee Perales, Erika Gonzalez, Suzy Rudofker, JoAnn Sacatto, Lauralee Roarke, Mary Ferrera, Leslie Levitas, Sandra Wade, Anne Card, Iyabode Manley, Deb Ley, Carrie White, Chloe Karl, Vida Feola, Catherine Rose, Carol Schepper, Roz Griffin, Jonathan Killops, Toni Jordan, Rose Brown, Brad Rasmussen, Tom Jordan, Maria Diaz, Annie Barnes, Zoe Flowers, Jared Hendricks, Michelle Meek, Teresa Stewart, Fawn Williams, Susan Dufrain, Donna Montgomery, Andre Ari, Camille Goldberg, Arch Kottler, Zach Burroughs, Jim Davis, Michael Rupe, Coyote, Marla Peterson, Sandra West, Susan Harmon, Jan MacLean, Judy Thein, Erica Harrison, Loraine Montano, Christina Drukala, Fayette Thom, Gail Dyne, Shannon Bucher, Laura Daly, Kathleen Sheckells, Daree Olson-Marks, Jeri Spittler, Linda Jensen, Norma Benitez, Laura Harris, Diane Davis, Janice Thomas, Bonnie Kelly, Tami Tajeda, Janice Hodges, Angela Reising, Beck Grant and Loretta Salvato. A big thanks also goes to the five “brave” teen camp counselors: Felicia Schlapkohl, Alexandra Vidien, Robin Fouche, Sophie Foster and Shannon Barnes.

Again, thank you to everyone who made “All That” so successful. I’m sure there are names I’ve missed, and if so, I’m sorry. Everyone who worked on this event was so valuable and I’m so appreciative of your efforts.

Gloria Flaherty is executive director of the Lake Family Resource Center, based in Lakeport.
