We have three potential service projects for October.  Read the descriptions and vote for any or all that you would like to help out with.

Shopping for Books at the Friends of the Bettendorf Public Library Book Fair, October 2 and 3

For the past couple of years, we’ve supplied reading materials for the children who use the services offered by the WIC offices.  We can supply them with a much larger number of items if we buy used, instead of new.  We need Kiwanians who are willing to weed through the huge amount of books at the Book Fair to find new and nearly new for children birth to 5.

Scarecrow Shenanigans, October 24

Volunteers are needed to help with Scarecrow Shenanigans on October 24, 2010. Volunteers are a large part of this special event, and even get to dress in costume!  Volunteer responsibilities include assisting with refreshments, Halloween games and activities, set-up and tear-down. Volunteer shifts are from 11:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. or 2:30 – 5:30 p.m.  Volunteers may help at one or both shifts.

Habitat for Humanity, date TBA

Terry Timmerman from Habitat for Humanity is the presenter for our September 21 meeting.  He’ll tell us what Habitat for Humanity is doing in our community, and how we can help.  We could arrange a date for us to work on a Habitat house as a group.

Now vote!  You can select any or all!
