 News That Concerns Kiwanians and Their Families


Many plus spouses and kids and grandkids. Santa, too!

None, but we did sing Christmas Carols!

Children's Christmas Party :
Many kids made friends with Santa and many gifts were handed out. Santa put many smiles on the faces of the little ones. The kids and families enjoyed the traditional mac and cheese with hot dogs, followed by an ice cream buffet. Don Nelson lead the happy crowd in Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is coming to town...

Below is a sampling of the happy faces at this year's children's Christmas party:

Quotes from Polly's memorial service:
"I'm going to talk about myself a lot because Polly and I were one..." -- Ed Chertok
"When I set eyes on the dark haired freshman with the sparkle in her eye, in September of 1936, I was the luckiest man in the world..." -- Ed Chertok on Polly
"She always loved attending meetings of the Kiwanis Club. She thrived on that contact." --David Osman, Ed and Polly's son-in-law
