Fifty Boys Enjoying Rotary Summer Camp
At Edmonton Beach


Bright Youngsters from Edmonton Under Chief Supervisor Hustler Having Time of Their Lives - Manley Union Church Holds an Enjoyable Picnic


 

Thursday, July 2, marked the fouth grand opening of the Rotary Summer Camp at Edmonton Beach. Fifty boys, comprising the first of three groups to be afforded the opportunity of a two-week vacation at the camp, motored out in the afternoon with members of the Rotary club who had so kindly offered their cars in the same generous manner as they are doing all their other good work, towards giving a holiday to those bright little chaps who other-wise would not be able to enjoy one. Everything is running along in apple-pie order, great credit being due to Mr. Hustler, chief supervisor. the boys are happy, and loud in their praises of their leader. He is indeed, a king of instructors. The chef, who catered at the opening of the Rotary Boy's Camp at Edmonton Beach four years ago, is again on the job.
"Yum, Yum", the boys say, he sure can cook.
