Detective Mason, Kettering Police Officer of the Year

On September 10th, Detective Vincent J. Mason was honored as the Kettering Police Officer of the Year for 2015. Detective Mason duties include investigating violent crime for the city. He defines his job as “sticking up for people who can’t stick up for themselves”. He also assists other local community police departments, such as West Carrollton, Centerville and Oakwood, as needed.

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.

Help Local Youth

All profits from our tree lot go toward youth programs and scholarships. We are able to award over $8,000 annually to graduating seniors at local high schools, because of your support. The tree lot is open daily from noon to 9 pm. Select from North Carolina Frazer Firs and Michigan Scotch Pine: table top to over 9 feet. We have wreaths and roping as well.
