Human and Spiritual Aims:  check for daily updates--more information at end of page

Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the Lord, who made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who by myself spread out the earth. Isaiah 44:24

The God who made the world and everything in it, he who is Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by human hands, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mortals life and breath and all things. Acts 17:24–25

Creator God, you are the giver of life and all things good. You created out of love, so may we in your likeness care for all that you have made. Amen.

Recent Programs and Meeting Held

Aug 9 Pres. John came in with a set of legs “to die for.” It's a new fashion statement. And we had a good crowd again today. Must’ve been looking for this new fashion trend. Walt reports positive results from March School for next year but there is presently no advisor available for the Builders Club, but he’s trying. Barb is handling this year’s Rose Sale. The orders must be paid for and in her hands by Wed. September 20th and delivery and pick up will be Thursday October 19th. We need to sell, sell, sell and hopefully more than 150 dozen. We’ve been fortunate for the past few years to receive a PA Kiwanis Foundation Matching Scholarship Grant of $500 for one of our 2-$1000 scholarships. Bill brought us up to current information on our 100th Anniversary Project, The Easton Playground & Gardens Project. He and Dean will meet with the Easton Housing Board next Tuesday. Our speaker today was no stranger to us: Terry Kennedy of Personalized Books Given To Children, Inc. If we accept this project, and who wouldn’t, this will be the 12th year we are providing personalized books to first graders in the Easton School District. And according to Terry’s count we have given out some 7,680 books in the past 11 years. Terry gave us some heartwarming background on some of the past many years’ experiences with children and teachers. When he was talking last year at the Allentown School District Board meeting and he mentioned “getting down on the floor and reading to 1st graders,” that really got the attention of the board members. And this past year Easton School District, on the recommendation of teachers and staff, awarded Terry the “2016 George Wolf Award.” Last year Terry was able to work with the teacher advisor from the Easton Key Club and she brought a group of students to help deliver and read with the March 1st graders and I understand that many of the students can’t wait until they can help deliver and read again this coming March. This may be a project Walt can work with our K-Kids or Builders Club this coming year. But just think, this program over the past 12 years in the Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton Schools had delivered personalized books to over 43,000 1st graders: all with a Kiwanis logo inside. Be Proud!
