Big Brothers/Big Sisters speak to P.M. Kiwanis
The P.M. Kiwanis held it regular meeting in the Hy-Vee Dining area starting at 7 p.m. with the Pledge of Allegiance followed by a silent prayer.
President Kenny Lamb presided and introduced the speaker for the evening representing Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Lynn Carroll. This program has been in Marshalltown for 41 years, non-profit. It helps a child to read and visit about things. This is for six-year-olds through high school.
Many who have helped with this program have a lasting friendship for life. The child learns to say what is on his mind, given the right concept. This group has a waiting list of 48 kids so they could use more volunteers. They also learn activities-bowling, fishing, group playing, etc.
During the business meeting the group discussed the upcoming garage sale at the Fairgrounds activity building on June 5 and 6. As usual, there will be bargains galore and all the proceeds go back to the area children.
Next week the speaker will be Mary Giese. Join us at 7 p.m. for the program and meeting following dinner on your own.
