The Indiana District’s relationship with Riley Hospital is long-standing, and dear to our hearts.  The 3 Wishes Campaign: Early Action for Autism has resulted in the opening of 14 diagnostic hubs spread across Indiana, training of pediatricians and general practitioners throughout the state, and lowering the age of diagnosis of autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders.  We are starting our 4th year of the campaign and the results have been outstanding.
Every county in the state have children that depend on Riley Children’s Hospital.  So if you haven’t yet made your yearly donation or if your club is looking for donations for their year ending budget, please help start off our 4th year in great financial shape.  I ask you to make club and individual payments before September 30, 2018.
The 3 Wishes Campaign is working, but we need your help.  Be generous-your contributions truly help the children throughout all of Indiana.
Please make checks payable to Kiwanis Indiana Foundation and mail them to 3636 Woodview Trace, #100  Indianapolis, IN  46268.
Thank you,

Kiwanis Weekly Meeting Notes 22 Mar 2018

Thank you to everyone who helped with our Vision Screening Project at Scottsburg High School and helped with the Spaghetti Dinner to benefit Riley Children’s Hospital.
We screened 167 tenth graders at SHS and will be working with Heather Crites to follow up to ensure those who need help will receive the vision correction they need.  Special thanks to Kids First, Kiwanis Corporate Member Austin Tri Hawk, Scottsburg Lions Club and Kiwanis International for their donations of money and vouchers to assist our kids.  Together we are making a difference. 
We are still paying the bills and collecting donations and ticket sales, but all indications point that this will be one of the best Spaghetti Dinners in several years to support Riley Children’s Hospital.  It’s so important this year as we are working with the Indiana District to support the Riley effort to reduce the age of diagnosis of early childhood development issues such as autism and developmental delay.  The Indiana District is helping fund hubs throughout the state to assist with identification, diagnosis, education and screening of our kids.  Our hub is located in New Albany.  We have 12 hubs now with the intent of having a hub within 45 minutes of every child in the state of Indiana.  Your support of the Spaghetti Dinner helps that effort.
A couple of events coming up next month will be our annual spring cleaning/repairs at the CASA House on 14 Apr from 8:00-12:00.  Please plan on helping if you’re available that Saturday.
We are also planning our next Bike Safety Rodeo to be held during the Y Healthy Kids Day on 21 Apr from 9:00-11:00.  We will partner with the Pilot Club, Scottsburg Police Dept and the Scottsburg Fire Dept again this year and will start setting up the course at 7:15, outside weather permittingCorporate Member SCSD2 will be donating the chalk line marker and chalk to help set up the course.  Please help with setting up the course and/or conducting the Bike Safety Rodeo if you’re available.  The SHS Key Club plans on assisting.  We need help setting up, keeping the bikes organized, registering the kids, assisting the volunteers from the Police and Fire Depts, conducting a quiz and handing out completion certificatesOur Kiwanis Indiana District Governor Elect is planning on attending as he wants to make bike safety a major plank in his platform next year.  The Pilot Club District Governor has been invited to attend also.
Thanks so much for all you do for our kids!
If I don’t see you over the next week I wish each of you and your families a Happy Easter!
