Gov. Tom's Message

This has been a productive and active March for your Governor.

The Potomac Region Kiwanis Clubs held their third annual Onesies collection for the infant patients at Children's National Medical Center, Washington, D. C.  The clubs collected over 1000 Onesies.  These items were delivered to a very grateful hospital staff on Thursday, March 10 for use in "Dr. Bear's Closet".  There is a definite need for items for infants who are sometimes neglected by donors and the Region plans to continue this annual effort.  This service project is spearheaded by Young Children Priority One District Chair, Bernice Oden.
