The Scottsburg Middle School Builders Club and Scottsburg High School Key Club designed and built the Kiwanis Christmas float for the Scottsburg Christmas Parade. The theme of the parade was “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. The float theme was the 7 Swans a Swimming. The kids had fun with the idea and turned it into a 7 Swans Swim Team. Thanks to members of the Builders Club and Key Club for creating the float and riding in it during the parade. Special thanks to Lisa Sutton for her work with the Builders Club. Thanks to Grant McGlothlins grandfather for pulling the float.

The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club hosted their annual Spaghetti Dinner to raise money for Riley Children’s Hospital at the Scottsburg United Methodist Church. This year the focus for Riley was to help with the Three Wishes Program to improve the early detection and treatment of early childhood development issues such as autism and developmental delay. Dr Swigonski from Riley Children’s Hospital and a Professor of Pediatrics at Indiana University’s Medical School had visited Scottsburg a few weeks earlier to give a couple of presentations to the medical community and to child care providers, teachers and volunteers who work with young children such as CASA and CRADLE. The community support for this effort has been nothing short of outstanding. Congratulations for making this spaghetti dinner the best in memory of any of our Kiwanis members. The Kiwanis cooked spaghetti, and the SHS Key Club and SMS Builders Club bused tables and made baked goods to sell as dessert with all proceeds going to Riley Children’s Hospital. With your help we are able to donate $965 to Riley. The proceeds will help Riley and the Indiana District of Kiwanis ensure screening kids are available to communities all over the State of Indiana and that treatment and educational materials are available in all our communities. Thank you all for your generosity and support! Pictured are some of our guests that evening enjoying the spaghetti dinner, Sam Everett from the SHS Key Club washing dishes and outstanding chef, Chris Wakeman in the kitchen. Thank you again for your outstanding support of Riley Children’s Hospital and the kids in our community who will benefit from this program.
