Mickey Aberman AZA had a very successful program on
July 12th. This was the second year that the chapter has taken
children from the Alexander Children’s Home to Carowinds.
Approximately 20 children attended this function - they spent
the entire day there and were “treated” to lunch, snacks and
each one received a souvenir to remember the occasion.
Special thanks go from the chapter to the people who spon
sored a child; without their financial help this could not have
been made possible.
