Newton Falls – The Kiwanis Club of Newton Falls welcomed seven new members this year.  Some members were invited to join by friends; others wanted to take part in the many activities that benefit Newton Falls residents and children, especially after reading the newspaper articles about this service organization.

We asked these members why they joined or what activities they particularly liked.  Alma Griffith enjoyed starting the perennial garden and really enjoys getting involved in the food-in-backpacks program.  She liked the junior Olympics—in fact, all the projects with the youth in the community, to make them better citizens and take pride in the community. “It lets you know what our community has to offer.  The companionship of Kiwanis members is wonderful at events such as bingo at Allan Dell and Laurie Ann. “All this makes our community a better place to live.  It’s fun talking up Newton Falls. I look forward to every Tuesday [meeting or bingo night].“

Carole Mazanetz really enjoyed helping at bingo.  She adds, “It was delightful passing out new books, which the club bought, to the first graders at the elementary school.”

Both of these new members helped to label books for the backpack program while accepting cakes prior to the Cake Walk.  Our Kiwanis Club appreciates the contribution of these new members.

Kiwanis meets Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. at Covered Bridge Inn Restaurant,  22 W. Broad, Newton Falls, except for the last Tuesday of the month, which is bingo night at Laurie Ann and Allan Dell.  Please consider joining us.  See more at .
