Grab some spaghetti for the childrenPublished 12:02am Wednesday, October 17, 2012
What is Kiwanis? Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.
The principle core of the Kiwanis mission is the belief that the most effective way to enhance a community is to enhance its children.
The needs of young children are a priority at Kiwanis. Each community identifies and acts on crucial needs in their community.
Since Kiwanians believe that children are the future, this global organization has helped eradicate diseases, build schools, shelter the homeless, feed the hungry and promote leadership skills through the Key Clubs at local high schools, sponsored by the Kiwanis organization.
Our local organization, the Natchez Trace Kiwanis Club, has devoted most of their projects work to local children through sponsoring Key Clubs at most of the high schools in the Miss-Lou, donating automated external defibrillators to the local schools, giving monetary awards to exceptional seniors in the Key Clubs and donating money to the Boy and Girl Scouts, Pleasant Acre Day School, the Natchez Children’s Home, T.M. Jennings Little League and D&J Youth Group.
One of our main fundraising events is the annual spaghetti luncheon from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday at Jefferson Street Methodist Church in the fellowship hall.
Come join the fun and enjoy wonderful fellowship and a great meal for only $7.
Tickets can be purchased from a Kiwanis member or purchased at the door.
Come enjoy the atmosphere of fine dining or takeout.
The children of our community are our future.
Your donation will definitely enhance the children of the Miss-Lou.
See you Thursday.
