A number of Las Vegas Lions Clubs sponsor a camp for underprivileged children each year. This year we decided to have the camp at The Rising Star Sports Ranch Resort. We bussed the kids here from Las Vegas and they had an absolutely wonderful week. We had one of the Mesquite Police Department’s Officers bring his K-9 companion to demonstrate to the kids that dogs capabilities.  Some of the local firemen came and barbecued dinner for the kids. We had the Fish and Wildlife representative come and put on a great presentation. They swam daily, did arts and crafts and had many presentations on bullying, being respectful to others and a number of other issues. However, the best part of the whole week was the terrific service we received from the staff at The Rising Star. They bent over backwards to accommodate the entire group of kids, counselors and adults that were present. I cannot say enough good things about the staff at that wonderful place. Kudos to each and every one of them. The company definitely hires the perfect people with the best personalities to greet and take care of their guests.  I want to say THANK YOU to each and every one of them.
