Celebrating New Life and Saying Good Bye

Our June 14 meeting was a celebration and farewell.

Vinita has been a valuable member of our club, working with Fridley Key Club and Builders Club. Her family is moving to Asheville, NC, so we said "see you later" at our meeting.

We also celebrated member Jenny's new baby, Kurtis! The club had a "baby shower" to celebrate!

Kiwanis One Day Project 2016

The Kiwanis One Day Project brought over 130 people from Region 7 Kiwanis groups together to build dressers for Bridging in Roseville. Bridging serves families getting into homes and apartments who need basic household goods to get started. Every family is low income, the average income being below $20,000/year.

This is our FIFTH YEAR on this project and we've built around 400 dressers in that time period.

For more information about how you can help Bridging with donated household goods, CLICK HERE.

Valentines for the Troops

A snowstorm couldn't keep our Kiwanis group from meeting! The group simply pushed the meeting to another day and came together because it was time to make Valentine cards for our troops.

Kiwanis supports our troops!

Sending greetings to our veterans

Kiwanis meeting tonight was special. We were introduced to a homebound Vietnam vet living in Wisconsin that was cared for by a daughter of one of our Kiwanians. He loves getting cards and letters as it's his only contact with the "outside" world.

The group set about writing notes and letters so he could have a wall full of greetings from our club. Genie Burns, who introduced us to the veteran, took pictures of each Kiwanian so the veteran would be able to put a face to the cards and letters.

We are thankful for those who serve and who have served.
