Ames Noon Kiwanis 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, other Kiwanis clubs, friends and family who helped make this year's Pancake Days, March 3rd and 4th, a roaring success.
