Ramblings on the Wires - March 2, 2007

Ramblings on the wires – March 2, 2007

What makes different than all the other service clubs . . .

That’s easy, our members . . . Each of us aren’t in the club to make a name for ourselves. We are there to make a positive impact on our community. And over the years our projects have built an image for our club. One that shouts that we care about all people in our community . . . From our Award Winning Program, to our support of the Food Pantry to our most recent project, . Each and every project we undertake sends a message and each and every project has to fit within our image model . . . Sounds a little self indulgent, but in truth it allows us the flexibility to add projects and still stay the course.

Our fundraisers take on the same model because image is who we are. In the spring we sell Blue Spruce Pine Trees in celebration of Earth Day and Arbor Day. It’s a way for us to give back to the Earth, we all take for granted. And in August we have a Duck Derby and float bathtub size ducks down our Fox River, along with a raffle . . . The fastest corporate duck is presented with a plaque. We end the day with a little socializing at the club level with a member picnic.

Our other projects are;
Sponsorship of youth clubs;

West High Key Club
Work Projects
Food Pantry
Bell Ringing for the Salvation Army
Women’s Center
Up Connection
Habitat for Humanity
Help Kiwanis International all but eliminate Iodine
Deficiency Disorder
The Fred Baumgart Community Service Awards
Literacy Council

Police Youth Projects

We could probably do more, but we are making a difference, one person at a time.
