LSHOF helps Summer Kids History Camp
The Lorain Sports Hall of Fame helped youngsters to enjoy athletic and creative fun activities on June 14, 2016, at the Lorain Historical Society’s Summer Kids History Camp. The event was held at the historical society’s Carnegie Center at 329 10th Street in Lorain.
Lorain High School Titans football players and girls volleyball team members volunteered and did a wonderful job of guiding the children from the Little Lighthouse Learning Center in the activities.
Our thanks to Head Football Coach Dave McFarland and Girls Volleyball Coach Lynne Rositano, who participated — and to their athletes who volunteered to help out.
And thanks also to Barb Piscopo, executive director of the historical society, for making it possible for LSHOF to participate in the summer camp event. A gallery of photos from the event is below. For more photos and a video from the event, see our page on Facebook.
