LouAnn Davis believes Keith Muise has a good message and supports what he stands for in promoting mental health awareness.
That’s why she got involved in his 80s Summer Camp Day last year and is returning as director again this year.
“It’s his positive attitude, making the most of each day and promoting having fun and laughter in your life,” she said of Muise.
Davis said the camp day, taking place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 20 at Stephenville Dome, does all that and more.
She said the biggest difference this year is a performance by Nomad Stages Summer Choir of 12 singers that she been working with for weeks now in preparing for this show, who will be doing four songs.
Davis said she worked with most of these kids for about a year and they will be performing all upbeat songs.
In addition, there will be comedy skits by Muise, along with 80’s fun games all around the arena that demonstrate you don’t need a phone to have fun.
Davis said last year the event went over well and with more promotion in the community this year they are hoping for even more people to take part.
She said one of the priorities of 80s Summer Camp is for organizations which provide mental health initiatives in the community to bring awareness.
It’s an all age’s event and children under 10 get in for free.
