LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Members of the Rotary Club of Little Rock are busy all day this Saturday, teaming up with Camp Aldersgate.

They are volunteering at the camp to celebrate 100 years of service.

The Rotary Club of Little Rock, also known as Club 99, is an affiliate of Rotary International, an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

Rotary members will be cleaning out a pavilion on the 120-acre camp, including repainting benches, landscaping work, pressure washing and more.

Camp Aldersgate is Arkansas' only non-profit uniquely dedicated to serving children with disabilities, youth and senior adults in a camp environment.

THV 11's Ashley Blackstone's sat down with Sarah Wecaster, executive director of the camp, to talk about the project. Wecaster says the Camp depends on heroes within the community to keep their mission going.

"One of the things we rely so heavily on are those sweet volunteers who come in," says Wecaster. "They may help us with our campers, they may help us with office work, we have some phenomenal people who are in our life and especially somebody like the Rotary Clubs of Central Arkansas."
