Corrine Fernald of Mechanicsville spent most of the summer of 2013 as a Camp Buddy at Camp Greenwell. As a volunteer, she helped children have an awesome camp experience. This fall, when she invited her friends to her birthday party, she asked them to forget the gifts and instead donate to the Greenwell Scholarship Fund.

The Moose Lodge in Mechanicsville let the Fernald family use the outside pavilion for the party and also made a $250 to the Greenwell Scholarship Fund. Corrine’s friends answered the call and donated $110.

Thanks to Corrine, her family and friends, and the Moose Lodge, more children will be able to attend Camp Greenwell — an inclusive and accessible summer camp program where children enjoy outdoor adventures, make new friends, have fun, and just be a kid.
