At a recent meeting of the Clearwater All American Sertoma Club, the group was introduced to Charles Lake, a Sertoman for nearly 50 years and board president of Sertoma's Camp Endeavor, located at 1301 Camp Endeavor Blvd., Dundee.

A slide show accompanied Lake's talk on the privately supported, nonprofit educational summer camp program designed and organized to serve the deaf, hard of hearing, their hearing brothers and sisters and hearing children with deaf or hard of hearing family members. The facility is also available for year-round camping by all other special needs children's groups and organizations.

The camp offers activities, including swimming, horseback riding, evening campfires, hayrides, nature hikes, crafts and wildlife identification, giving campers the chance to learn about themselves and each other in an informal and empowering setting.

At the conclusion of Lake's presentation, John Doran, vice president of the Clearwater All American Sertoma Club, presented him with the "Sertoma Cup" as a token of the club's appreciation for his dedication to Sertoma and Camp Endeavor.
