Tuesday, November 19 was the 21st Annual Joint Service Club’s Luncheon hosted by Alexandria Kiwanis. Over 50 organizations supporting the Alexandria community were invited to receive the community’s appreciation for their efforts. Mayor Bill Euille provided the key note address, noting that the role of the service organizations is essential for our community and for society.
The Annual Barbara and Frank Becker Stocking Stuffer was held on December 12. The Kiwanis Family included Kiwanians, guests, and Key Club members from Edison, T.C. Williams and Lee High Schools. This annual event was started by the late Frank Becker almost two decades ago and is being sustained by the support of Barbara Becker. An enthusiastic and efficient crew stuffed 372 stockings that were delivered to preschools: ALIVE!, Hopkins House, Network Preschool, Domestic Violence and the Campagna Center’s Headstart Program. Additionally, the Alexandria Kiwanis Foundation distributed over $1,000 in gift cards to Community Partners for Children, Residential Youth Services and Sheltered Homes.
