Jack McWhirter and Al Riggle from the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club attended the 99th Kiwanis Indiana District annual convention in Muncie, Indiana. Pictured are from left to right, Jack McWhirter, Indiana District Governor David Dixon from the Muncie Kiwanis Club and Al Riggle. The convention consisted of keynote speakers, workshops, a meeting of the House of Delegates to vote on next year’s Governor and Governor Elect, transition of the new District Board of Directors to include installation of the new Division Lt Governors and a memorial service for those Kiwanians who passed away this year. Steve Ingram from the Valparaiso Club was elected District Governor for 2017-18 and Jud Roush from the Plymouth Club was elected Governor Elect. Teresa Tanner from the Henryville Club was installed as the new Lt Governor for the Scenic Hills Division which includes the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club. Jack and Al presented the Scottsburg donation of $600 for Riley Children’s Hospital and carried up a box of donations for the Parent Comfort Cart at Riley Children’s Hospital. The donation was raised during the annual Scottsburg Kiwanis Club Spaghetti Dinner. The Parent Comfort Cart is manned by Kiwanis volunteers and provides personal hygiene items, snacks, and puzzles to support parents who are at Riley while their children are undergoing treatment. The Indiana District of Kiwanis has a 90 plus year history of supporting Riley Children’s Hospital. Thanks to all those who supported the spaghetti dinner or donated items to the Parent Comfort Cart.
Good afternoon KIDS!
