On March 23rd at noon, Clark, Carmen, Mary Lynn, Bill and myself went to the Volunteer Luncheon at Wilkinson School.  You may remember Bill Irish sits on the Student Advisory Council at Wilkinson as our representative.
This luncheon was to honor Wilkinson's volunteers.  Invitations were in 4 categories: Student, Adult, Senior and Business. We were in the "business" category.   That's because our Siesta Key Kiwanis Club won the Business Partner of the Year, not only at the school level but for the entire Sarasota School District.  We won on several levels.  We sponsored 8 class rooms through the W.A.V.E. program meaning we donated $100 per class room for supplies, so the teachers did not have to take money out of their pockets.  We also sponsor the B.U.G.s program, the "Christmas Angels" effort, and have been collecting clothing for the school's Clothing Drive.
It is nice to know our Kiwanis Club is making a difference and to be recognized.  We all received certificates of appreciation along with one for the Club shown here.
