Miller during Saturday’s 50th birthday celebration at Wonderland Camp. Miller, along with his brother-in-law Harry Brown, donated more than 200 acres of land on the Lake of the Ozarks for the establishment of the camp for children, teenagers and adults with disabilities. The camp was constructed by the Missouri Jaycees and the Missouri National Guard, and Rotary International has been instrumental over the years in the growth and development of the camp. The camp continues to provide a fun, educational and safe camp experience for children, teenagers and adults with disabilities and offers a respite from daily caregiving for their family members and caregivers.
