KIWANIANS IN ACTION
Ames Noon Kiwanis recently presented a $1000 check to the Edwards School neighborhood park project. Ken Platt, Ames, accepted the Kiwanis donation. Platt said that the project will help
stabilize the neighborhood and create a safe park to serve as a meeting and recreation site for children and families. He added that the park will also serve as an open-air space for use by residents of the nearby Johanns House, part of the Ames-based Friendship Ark Homes organization. Platt said that $150,000 has been raised toward the effort; total cost estimated at $250,000.
Our club recently presented $1000 to support the activities of Teen Maze. Gerri Bugg (left) is the Community, Youth, and Family Development Director for Youth and Shelter Services. Bugg is lead coordinator for Teen Maze. Ronnie Lindeman (right), Noon Kiwanis member, presented the $1000 gift to Bugg. Teen Maze is a week-long annual event that reaches some 1200 7th graders from 14 central Iowa school districts in four counties. The event format allows young people to experience life situations in a safe environment, and helps them learn to make positive decisions on issues including finances, nutrition, social media and relationships. Teen Maze is conducted with the help of more than 300 volunteers.
Thanks to all the volunteers from our club and others from the community who helped make this year's Bike Rodeo, May 6th, a roaring success.
