On Tuesday, June 25, SCSO is inviting everyone to come to the Fort Smith Sheriff’s Office (800 S. A Street) between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to enjoy a cookout. The purpose of the cookout is to raise money for Fort Smith Kiwanis Club Summer Boys Camp. All money raised will go to help fund this year’s camp effort.
Each year Fort Smith Kiwanis Club provides a week long camp at Lake Fort Smith State Park for boys from our area aged 9-11. Activities include BB guns, fishing, swimming, and on Thursday of the week is Law Enforcement Day. For many of the campers this is the highlight of their year. Many would not get to go anywhere this summer if not for the Camp.
The Camp, while worthwhile, is expensive costing over $100 per boy. Fort Smith Kiwanis raises money year round to make sure all of the camp fees are covered and no child is charged a penny. SCSO’s goal is to raise $5,000.
No donation will be considered too small and none will be considered too large. You give as your heart leads you.
The menu tomorrow will be hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, drinks, and dessert. All are invited!
