ELIZABETHTOWN — The Bladen County Kiwanis Club recently met for its monthly meeting and, not only did the club members hear a plan for the Kiwanis One Day, but Kiwanian Dr. Lisa Bryan was named a “Super Hero” for all her work with the club.
The local Kiwanians are planning on coming together on Kiwanis’ One Day at the Lake Waccamaw Boys & Girls Home.
“Our theme is ‘Let’s Build a Garden!’, we will be doing landscaping and garden boxes,” announced Kiwanian Mary Winfree. “The kids will learn all sorts of lessons with this project. They will learn to garden and may be able to sell the vegetables.”
She then stood with a blue cape in her hand, described the characteristics of a super hero and the fact that Bryan displayed all the qualities of a super hero. Bryan was presented with the cape and named the “Super Hero of Kiwanis” for all her hard work for the club and its mission.
Bryan accepted the cape humbly and took the opportunity to challenged everyone — first asking everyone to donate to the Kiwanis International for the club’s work internationally.
Then Bryan said she was challenging everyone with a membership drive. The member who invites the most potential members to meeting and the member who encourages the most members to join will both win a $25 gift certificate Bryan has purchased out of her own pocket.
Winfree reminded everyone to register for the Kiwanis One Day being held on Saturday, April 2nd, starting at 8:30 am at Lake Waccamaw Boys and Girls Home. She said there will not only be work to do, but a bar-b-que, tours, fun and activities.
