In lieu of flowers, consider supporting Wanda and KL’s legacy by helping a child attend camp. Donations should be made out to “Wanda Higgins Memorial” (details below) and will be deposited in a scholarship fund. This fund aids students attending summer camp as well as school retreats throughout the year.  Scholarship support is given on the individual’s needs and is disbursed at the Hummingbird staff’s discretion.
