(2-8-21) The Celina Kiwanis had a busy January despite pandemic restrictions.

To educate newer members about SLPs, Student Leadership Programs, President Karen Perts gave a presentation on the Kiwanis sponsored school clubs.

In other business, the members unanimously elected Yvette Fuelling to the Board of Directors.

They donated to State of the Heart Hospice in memory of past members. The club also donated to Our Home’s “Empty Bowls” Campaign, the Mercer County Dare Boosters, and Arts in the Parks. Erynn Piper joined the club late in the month.

The Celina chapter wrapped up both their scholarship fund drive and their sale of gas card chances. Thanks to the generosity of local businesses, the club will be able to give the same number of scholarships as they gave last year.

Drawings for the gas card winners will begin in February. A Mercer Health employee, President Perts briefly reviewed the coronavirus vaccine roll out plans.

As part of their February agenda, the club plans to review current committees and restructure them if necessary.
