We would like to try and beat Purdue at something.  So maybe we can step up and raise more money for Riley Hospital than the Purdue Fans and secure the naming rights for the Heartland Kiwanis Riley Bear.  He deserves something better than Purdue Pete.

Boiler Up for Riley.  Let's make sure we donate the most and secure the naming rights for the Heartland Division's Riley Bear.  He deserves something better than Hoosier.

Wednesday March 16, 2022, 5 members of the Columbus Meridian Kiwanis Club built a Gingerbread Playhouse for Rylie as part of her Make-A-Wish. Material was all provided by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. All we provided was the labor and love building the Playhouse for this special little girl. #KidsNeedKiwanis

Thanks to the Make A Wish Foundation for including us in the reveal for Rylie’s wish today. We were happy to be part of bringing some joy to Rylie.

Congratulations Seymour Kiwanis. Shannan Norrell and Adrianne Hernandez and Columbus Golden K for being Distinguished Clubs for the 2021-22 Kiwanis year. Thanks also to Josh Miller(Franklin Club) Doug Stender and Jennifer Jaggers (Columbus Meridian) and Cathy Schuler, Shannon and Dennis Wydau ( Shelbyville Club) for attending the Conference as well. Sorry Shelbyville that we couldn’t find you for the group picture. I think the venue was actually too small for the large crowd that we had.

A special thank you to the Meridian Kiwanis Club of Columbus for hosting Turning Point at their Thursday meeting for a special Dance Marathon program update. As long-time supporters of Dance Marathon, they typically enjoy hosting student leadership for lunch, but Sarah Flores & Stephen Dishinger were able to share a special video message from the DM2021 teens, and update the Club on plans going forward. We hope to see our Meridian Kiwanis friends again at DM2022 if not sooner! Meridian Kiwanis club of Columbus, Indiana

Christina Bailey of Thrive Alliance has asked for the following to be shared: I'm doing a canned meat collection for my clients at work. We're going to use as prizes/ incentives for attending the educational programs & activities. Meat will help stretch their food budgets & get much-needed proteins. Canned beef, chicken, turkey, tuna, beef stew or "hearty" soups like pot roast. If anyone wants to make monetary donations instead I will purchase frozen meat items since we have freezer at work. Any extras will be shared w/ the senior hot meal site clients at community center. Please share w/ any youth groups or civic groups you belong to if they would like to do as a service project. Thank you! Christina Bailey [email protected] 812-379-1109
Thank you for inviting my husband and I to speak at your meetings. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were honored to be there.
