Three Firsts for Great Bridge Kiwanis.
At our first evening meeting under our new schedule, we made the first donation to the Chesapeake Library Foundation's new capital campaign. (Pictured above) President Jim Chellew presented Library Director Betsy Fowler with a $1,000 check to kickoff the Foundation's drive to raise $250,000 to renovate the children's areas in all seven of the City's libraries. Going beyond books, the areas will focus on activities to help develop pre -K skills children need before kindergarten - color groups, hand-eye coordination, numbers and more. Since the library provides internet access for about a quarter of Chesapeake's citizens, each area will include a computer center where parents can go on-line while staying close to their kids. This layout should encourage parents to bring their children to the library and provide important developmental activities for even more of Chesapeake's children. We also inducted our first new member of the year, Byrant Bourne.

Kiwanis of Front Royal Welcomes Elementary School Principal. The Kiwanis Club of Front Royal fills its mission every week of helping children in our community by having guest speakers that get to the "meat" of the situation with kids. Recently, Margaret Holmes, principal at E Wilson Morrison Elementary School spoke to the group about school certification. She explained how difficult it is to deal with students whose families are transient, uneducated, worn out and unemployed which is a high percentage of her student populations. Her staff makes every effort to not only teach these children, but to support them with special programs. Pictured, Wayne Barber, Kiwanis Host and Mrs. Holmes.
