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.
The Scott County Partnership is seeking volunteers for the Reality Store program at Austin Middle School on April 6, 2018 and in Scottsburg Middle School on May 11, 2018. Volunteers will host booths for teens to visit as a part of learning what it means to balance a budget as adults.
At The Reality Store, students will learn to manage their money, provide their families basic needs, as well as learn to manage life’s unexpected financial issues. envision the lifestyle they’d like to have when they’re in their mid-20’s, select the occupation they’d like to have as an adult, receive a checking account deposit equal to one month’s salary from their desired job, spend their salary in The Reality Store, first on necessities and then on “extras”, handle some of life’s unexpected events, learn whether their selected occupation will provide the financial resources needed to provide the lifestyle they want.
The Reality Store gives students a chance to get a realistic view of what their parents/guardians go through on an everyday basis. At the same time they can envision what it will be like for them to make ends meet on the career path they are considering. It’s a safe environment to give their prospective career a run through.
If you are interested in helping with the Reality Store, please respond to this email or contact me at the phone number below.

An achievement report is submitted at the end of each school year identifying projects the club planned and conducted, membership growth, meeting attendance, fundraisers, officer training, and others. The achievement report is used to determine how many points each club earns. For the second consecutive year, the Builders Club earned enough points to be recognized as a Distinguished Club. Only three schools in the Indiana District earned this recognition. Congratulations to the members of the Builders Club and their advisor, Lisa Sutton.
