Hi Everyone! In my job as director of the library, I have the pleasure of dealing with many fine organizations that have the interests of our children at heart. One of those is the local Kiwanis Club, of which I have the pleasure to be a member. Kiwanis is more than just an organization with an “interesting” sounding name. It’s an international service organization which is dedicated to.. “changing the world one child and community at a time.” Sounds pretty fancy and ambitious, doesn’t it? But I can tell you from personal experience that our local club is carrying out the Kiwanis mission on a day to day basis right here in Forest Park. Stand by for more updates in the days ahead on what Kiwanis does here in town, and why it’s an important part of the community.
