Ronald McDonald House Recognizes Kiwanis

At the December 10th annual meeting of the Dayton area Ronald McDonald House charities, Kettering Centerville Kiwanis club was awarded the prestigious "Heart of the Home" award.  This recognition is based on many years of service to Ronald McDonald House.  These efforts include preparing meals each 3rd Monday of the month for house residents, annually sponsoring a month of pantry supplies, and participation in the annual Spring Clean weekend.  Club member Joyce Kennedy coordinates the club's activities with Ronald McDonald House.  If you are interested in participating in any of these activities, contact Joyce at 937-298-6930 (joycekennedy54@gmail.com).  You do not have to be a member of Kiwanis to participate in our service projects.

Kettering Community Builds 3000th Trauma Doll

On October 25th, more than 100 community volunteers helped stuff and finish trauma dolls for children patients at area emergency rooms.  The activity took place at Town and Country mall.  This is the 4th year Kettering Centerville Kiwanis sponsored the event.   Several other groups participated, to inlclude Key Club members from Alter, Centerville and Dayton STEM High Schools.  Additionally, families from  Fairhaven Community Church and Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints were key to this effort.   The Kettering Centerville Kiwanis club constructs these dolls year-round.  This effort is led by Tallye McCall who, as a nurse, has seen first hand how comforting these dolls can be.
