Kiwanis Fund Raiser at Cappuccinos

O’Fallon Kiwanis Club members, families and friends ate out last night at Cappuccinos in O’Fallon to raise money for the Kiwanis Eliminate Campaign.  We are saving babies by getting their mothers vaccinated against Tetanus.  We saw many familiar faces last night.  Abby Hall, our Fort Zumalt West High School Key Club Advisor, was there with her husband and children too.  Way to go everyone!!

  • Christmas cards to give to the Salvation Army
  • “Giving Tree” – members are pairing up to buy gifts to give to needy families (tree is in their lobby)
  • Friends of Jaguars – members are giving clothing, groceries or gift cards to needy families of students within their school

Members of the O’Fallon Kiwanis Club like to support the Clubs they sponsor in area schools.  Students in Fort Zumwalt South Middle School Builder’s Club are collecting holiday cards for men and women in the military through the American Red Cross program called “Holiday Cards for Heroes”.  Kiwanis Club members had a table with cards and supplies to create holiday cards by those who attended their Annual Pancake & Sausage Day on November 11th.  Around 35-40 cards were created during the day.

Right away we could see that this was a fun event.  Pancakes were flipped into the air and you had to catch them with your plate.  If the pancake landed on the floor, you’d just try again and they had a clean up crew ready to clear away the “floor cakes”.  Everyone had a great time!

All of us did our best to catch those pancakes onto our plates….Go Don & Jackie!!

Builder’s Club members were washing tables and clearing off plates when their guests were finished eating. They also were talking to other students about joining their Builder’s Club.  What a great way to get new members!
