Our August 11th Rotary meeting will be held at Peterborough's Brantwood Camp, now in its 110th year of operation. Brantwood's Executive Director Amy Willey will be the speaker. Brantwood provides a fun, positive camping experience for boys and girls--from a variety of backgrounds--who would not otherwise have had the opportunity or been able to afford such an experience.
