KI Store Hit by Hackers

Almost daily, stories about credit card fraud and large corporate security breaches headline the news. Without question, these crimes are on the rise and criminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated.

Middletown Builders Club Very Active
by Brittany Reichelt, Middletown Builders Club Secretary

The Middletown Builders Club has 27 members. We have been very busy this year. These are some of the things we have accomplished. The first thing we have done was to collect $429.30 for UNICEF. All of that money went to helping children in Swaziland, Africa who are less fortunate. After that project, we did "Make a Difference Day" at Hood College, and we helped the Kiwanis Club of Suburban Frederick gift wrap fundraiser at FSK Mall in Frederick (left). more
