Gary Gravette Honored for Service

On February 26th, Kettering Centerville Kiwanis Club proudly honored member Gary Gravette with a Kiwanis International Zeller Award. Gary has been an active member of this club since 1977, serving many years as treasurer and leading the club's annual poinsettia sales. When a helping hand is needed, he is there to assist, consistently participating in the club's service projects such as the annual ice cream social at Polen Farm and walking with fellow Kiwanians at the Holiday at Home and Americana parades. He can also be found with fellow members serving summer lunches to Kettering children in need, and building trauma dolls for local emergency rooms as a part of Kettering's "Day of Service". Gary is also an active volunteer with the Air Force museum and his church, Harmony Creek in Kettering. Funds raised to honor Gary will be used to inoculate over 600 women and children for Maternal Neo-Natal Tetanus.
