Camp CaPella Spring Clean-Up Thursday
By Downeast Horizons Program Participants
DEDHAM, May Day – Tomorrow from 11:00 a.m. till noon, reporters are invited to watch about 60 program participants and staff from Downeast Horizons (providing services to local people with developmental disabilities) helping with a Spring Clean-Up at Camp CaPella – the camp that provides recreation and resources for people with disabilities and their families.
“Once again this is an opportunity for those with disabilities to give back in a way that will help many others with disabilities,” notes Tony Zambrano, executive director at Downeast Horizons. “For them, this is a day of community service, getting ready for opening day of summer camp in June, not so far away.”
“All of these people giving helping hands for Camp CaPella really helps us get a lot done in one day,” comments Dana Mosher, executive director of Camp CaPella. “They’re a vital part of what Camp CaPella is all about.”
