For Thanksgiving: Kiwanians feed 24 Hilltown families

By Zenie Gladieux

The Kiwanis Club of the Helderbergs spent last Tuesday evening assembling Thanksgiving dinners for 24 Hilltown families. The full boxes included everything from a frozen turkey with all the trimmings, to salad, veggies, rolls and pie makings.

Apples were donated by Indian Ladder Farms. Many club members donated turkeys. One-hundred-and-eighty-one individuals were served by this project, including 80 children.

The motto of Kiwanis is "serving the children of the world." Kiwanis is an international service club, with members worldwide working to improve their communities. Helderberg Kiwanians meet on Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. at The Highlands Restaurant on Route 156 in Knox. Visitors and prospective members are always welcome; call me for more information at 872-1469.
