Camden - Kings Bay Council

VA Medical Center, Lake City (FL) visit with hospitalized veterans to deliver gifts and supplies

Nine Camden - Kings Bay Council members visited the Lake City VAMC on Wednesday, July 2, 2014. What better way to kick-off our Fourth of July celebrations than to visit with veterans who fought to ensure our liberty, and bring them much needed personal care items, books, magazines, and other supplies.
