(8-21-18) Matt Overman updated the Kiwanis on activities at Grand Lake UMC. Reverend Overman is the Pastor of Children and Family Ministries. A successful Bible school welcomed 200 children from four churches. The children were challenged to raise $2500 to help rebuild a hospital in Haiti. That goal was met and surpassed with the final total over $4000. The Mobile Ministry has been making the rounds of the area setting up at local parks and events such as the Taste of Celina and the Lake Festival. Children’s programs will return to their regular schedule in September. A Fall Family Fun Day is scheduled for October 22 with inflatables and other family friendly activities.
In other club business, Kelly Westgerdes was chosen to be the club’s vice president for 2018—2019. Members voted to donate a basket for the charity auction at the Ohio District Convention. The Kiwanis Club of Celina meets at noon on Wednesdays at C.J.’s Highmarks.
