Sec/Treas Tom's Admonition:
"Get back to basics"

by Sec/Treas Tom Varner

by Rosemary Cummings

The day was perfect. K-Kids and Kiwanians greeted food shoppers at the local Super Fresh, as they entered (to give them a Kiwanis flyer and ask for a food donation) and as they exited (to look each person in the eye and say, "Thank you for your gift"). In just four hours on a crisp Fall October Saturday morning, the Lewes neighbors filled the Kiwanis grocery van with bags of groceries...more
