Kiwanis of the Pines Has Sandhills Visitors
The Kiwanis of the Pines holds a business meeting on the first Thursday of each month. Members bring canned goods for the Food Bank, which were delivered by George Drengler, along with a check for $75 from the club.
"It is always a pleasure to have other Kiwanis members attend our meetings," says a spokesman. "Wayne Adams, Ginny Thomason, and Ed Hitchens from the Kiwanis Club of the Sandhills came to add moral support to our endeavors."
Presently, the club is selling chances for golf at the Southern Pines Golf Club for $5 each. Only 150 tickets will be sold. This project, "Golf for Charities," will help Project Able with a donation.
John Weaver, treasurer of the group informed members of the upcoming international conference in Orlando, Fla., set for June 26-29. Many amendments are up for review as well as election of officers. Closer to home, state Kiwanis members will meet in the Winston-Salem area Aug. 22-23 to conduct business and elect officers.
Miles Robinson and Crystal Taylor reported on Belk Charity Days, saying the club raised over $547.35 for the Boys & Girls Club of Moore County.
