MORE THAN 200 visitors from Illinois, Wisconsin and elsewhere showed up for the Rustic Fair fundraiser at Rustic Falls Camp in town of Lyons during a previous event. The camp was created by Eric Lentz and his wife Deanna Hallagan, of Skokie, Ill. Despite enduring treatments for colon cancer, Lentz led the way in restoring a 160-year-old stone farmhouse on the property, turning it into a weekend hostel for up to 12 people.

Lyons — The third annual Rustic Fair at Rustic Falls will be from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 23 at the Rustic Falls Nature Camp, 5537 Cranberry Road, town of Lyons, about 5 miles east of Lake Geneva.

n A petting zoo.

n Barbecue, cotton candy, popcorn and a homemade bake shop.

n Raffle with sports tickets, homemade items and a wine wagon.

Tickets are $10 for an individual and $25 for a family.

Admission ticket includes entry, music and carnival games.

Proceeds from the Rustic Fair at Rustic Falls will help make outdoor experiences possible for at-risk-youth, cancer survivors and physically and mentally challenged children and adults.

The camp was created by Eric Lentz and his wife Deanna Hallagan, of Skokie, Ill.

Despite enduring treatments for colon cancer, Lentz led the way in restoring a 160-year-old stone farmhouse on the property, turning it into a weekend hostel for up to 12 people.

Some donations helped with the project, but Lentz and Hallagan financed much of the project on their own.

The camp is now supported through the nonprofit Frank Lentz Foundation, named after Eric's late father who was a child psychologist in the Naperville School District.
