The Siesta Key Kiwanis Christmas Angels, supported by their namesake committee - Mary Lynn Desjarlais, Brian Miller and Carolyn Jones-Penn - last Wednesday delivered 86 gifts for deserving students attending Wilkinson Elementary School.  School Counselor Anne Hill and Home School Liaison Mercedes Bolduc were on hand to accept the gifts donated by our angels.   (Photo at right.)
Carolyn and Brian checked-in the gifts as members carried them into the meeting.  After Ann and Mercedes had been introduced,  project chair Mary Lynn announced  that all 86 gifts had arrived, wrapped and properly tagged, ready for delivery.  Ann and Mercedes thanked the Club and members for their generosity and support for Wilkinson.
Twenty-three members and guests attended the meeting.  Guest speaker Marcus Bradley delivered an informative talk on personal safety - at home, shopping and on the road.  At the conclusion of the meeting members helped Brian Mill move the Angel Gifts to his SUV for delivery to Wilkinson Elementary.
Congratulations to the Christmas Angels Committee for a successful result.  Thanks to the many members who supported the project with donations of wrapped gifts.
