KIWANIS ONE DAY
April 2, 2016
Volunteers from the five Kiwanis clubs in Columbia joined forces at the The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri on Saturday April 2 to take part in the world-wide Kiwanis One Day project. This project is succinctly described on the Kiwanis International web site:
Students from Tolton Catholic High School Key Club which is sponsored by Golden K also participated, as well as several non-affiliated volunteers.
"Kiwanis members serve their communities all year long. But the excitement for service really builds in April each year when Kiwanis members come together for Kiwanis One Day—a day of community service that is felt around the world. The entire Kiwanis family—Kiwanis Kids, Builders Club, Key Club, CKI, Aktion Club and Kiwanis clubs—joins forces for this large-scale service project. Projects fill a specific need in each community and have included everything from building playgrounds to volunteering at a shelter to stocking shelves at a food pantry.” Kate Bedsworth, Leah Sanchez, Samantha Tackitt (Tolton HS) Gary Smith, John Haralson Charlie Lee, Marlowe Schlegel Jason Simmons, Leroy Sharp, Lisa Fredetti Emil Didovich, Murray Baker Gordon Brown, Harlan Hackett, Charlie Dreyer Myron Bennett, Louise Bullock, Charlie Dreyer Harlan Hackett, Louise Bullock
