Charter ceremony for the new LES K-Kids Club

I want to take a minute and brag about this bunch of kids.  If you look closely, they have big smiles and have dressed in their “Sunday Best”. We had our charter ceremony last night for the K Kids and I was so impressed with the whole formal component that Al Riggle and Monte Roth, Kiwinis Advisors, organized.  The officers were sworn in and the members received their certificates.  

The most exciting part of the whole evening was the support shown from our community, local and county wide. The turn out was amazing and our kids got to experience first hand that what they do for our community really matters and we appreciate what they do.
I am so very proud to work with these kids!  If you see them in the hallway, please tell them what good things they are doing and to keep up the good work.
Thanks,
Lee Anna
