Judy Moser is one of camp’s most prolific campers. Judy was seven years old in 1962 when she first attended Camp Greentop. She didn’t want to return the next year, but tried the camp again in 1964. That year the Beatles invaded the U.S. and something magical happened that summer at camp. Judy has returned every year to Camp Greentop since except for one that was canceled in the 1970s. Judy quips, “My favorite things at camp are friendship, fresh air and the pool.” Judy is already making plans to reunite with old friends for her 49th summer session at Camp this summer.
Justice Worsley began receiving services from The League’s Autism Services & Programs (ASAP) in July 2011. He made such phenomenal progress in his first six months, that even his own mother had trouble believing her son’s new behavioral state. Until then, Justice’s autism made him feel very uncomfortable in the community, which discouraged him from partaking in any outings. His mother was correspondingly uncomfortable, unsure of how her son might react to his changing surroundings. That was, until she found the support and encouragement they needed at The League. Members of The League’s ASAP staff have worked closely with Justice to improve his communication skills and to help him grow more alert and understanding of his agitations. This much needed support has helped him to feel more comfortable, as he now goes out in the community with little to no hesitation. His continual progress has allowed him to enjoy day trips to places such as Chuck E. Cheese, CiCi’s Pizza, and community playgrounds. Now more understanding of his disability, his mother received the encouragement and sense of relief she needed by watching her son’s behavior greatly improve. We are exceptionally proud of Justice’s progress thus far and look forward to helping him reach the heights of his potential.
Michael Sharpley has been employed by The League for over 25 years! Michael came to us after working with Goodwill Industries and has played an integral role in League Industries, a business service of The League for People with Disabilities. Though his role has changed throughout the growth of League Industries, his current position is that of Machine Operator. In over twenty-five years, Michael has never faltered in his punctuality nor his chivalric personality. “He’s the perfect gentleman,” says Mary Alt, Office Manager of League Industries who has worked with Michael for the past ten years. “He arrives at exactly 6am every morning and is always there to help.” Railroads, castles and the fire department are among Michael’s greatest held fascinations. Congratulations on over twenty-five years, Michael! We greatly appreciate all that you do.
