White Center Kiwanis Club president Bill Tracy is really proud of the Key Club they now sponsor at New Start High School. After just a few months, he explains, “They have already completed one service project, which was to sell Christmas Holly Wreaths, which they made, for $5. They raised over $300, which they donated to the White Center Food Bank. Now they could use some help so they can pay their yearly dues and perhaps if we are really successful, pay for two students to attend the yearly Key Club convention, which is held in Seattle.” So here’s how you can help: The Key Club’s first annual fundraising baked-potato dinner is set for Thursday night, January 19th, at the school, 614 SW 120th, 6:30-8:30 pm, baked potato bar, salad, rolls, dessert, and beverages, only $10/ticket. You can pay at the door or call Bill at 206-248-2441 for advance tickets. He says there’ll be student entertainment, too.
As for the Kiwanis Club itself – you’re invited to its meetings on first and third Wednesdays, White Center Pizza and Spaghetti House (10231 16th SW), 12:30 pm. Bill says, “We are a service club and concentrate on helping children in our own community. We do food bank service once a month at night so those who work during the day can get food also. Also we have interesting speakers plus we honor a student from New Start High School each month.” Want to know more? Call Nancy Tracy – same number, 206-248-2441.
