Texas Lions Camp for Handicap Children June 14th & 15th, 2017



This is group Photo of the last day we were there this year of those that came across Texas to help; we had seen about 150 kids and they as usual had the time of their lives. I can only say that this was our 20th year there at the Texas Lions Camp for Handicap Children. There is not words for the THANKS for those that show up every year to help train the counselors so to continue using this activity that the kids love so much with the wonderful gift donated by Garrett Metal Detectors of the 12 each Ace 150’s metal detectors that they gave the Camp some years ago; and the many over the years that was so kind to give those kids foreign coins to find and learn about other countries currency, and donations by many even overseas—this is the only reason the the Camp is still using the activity to this day! Without others the dream that both Nolan Underwood (deceased) ex-activity director of the Camp, and myself would of long been gone. We also want to thank the wonderful heart of all those that work at the Lions Camp for their dedication as well as the many Lions Clubs across Texas that seek out those kids in their communities, transport the kids to the Camp at no cost and the Camp that doesn’t charge a dime to any family of the kids represented there each year.

Little did Nolan and myself know that the foreign counselors that rotate yearly at the Camp would take our idea to their home country and start the same type of activities, to teach the children how to enjoy the wonderful fun of treasure hunting using a metal detector. The kids get to keep all coins they find  as we teach them what country the coin they just recovered represents and we leave them a buck full of foreign coins to use each year during the camping season, again donated by so many wonderful folks and treasure clubs here in Texas and around the world.
Nolan, those that help us each year with the kids and myself, all have our hearts touched by those up-spirited wonderful kids with their handicaps and big smiles, they are our future and at this Camp they are all on equal ground looking for the experience of a lifetime, and so are we.

P.S. Jim Lawhon of the Austin Club is getting me more photos from the video he took this year of our visit and the kids at the Camp. Jim is now trying to make a Utube for the internet for everyone to see. I’ll send you some more as I get them from him.

Had the pleasure to attend the Charles Garrett Memorial Hunt in Jefferson Texas this past weekend. Along with Keith Wills, Austin Peterson and Aspen Peterson.

Keith set up a Booth and featured Garrett Metal detectors and everything Garrett has to offer. Keith had some new items that Garrett came out within the last few months.

Keith spoke about WWATS Sat night and our Huge Ultimate Treasure & gold show coming in May. Also What WWATS has done in the past and what we are going to do for the hobby.

Mentioned the hunt in Colorado in June and Antlers Oklahoma in Oct   

WWATS donated 2 Memberships to help support their event and we were well received for the donation and weekend.

Had a chance to meet Mrs.Garrett and spent some time talking to her about the company .

Also Nugget Noggin  George KG & Ringy. and the staff of Garrett Such a great staff  

Such a great event well organized and lots of interesting items found. lots of history on this vast property everything from the civil war to date was found.
