Taking the First Steps

Members of the new Red River Kiwanis Club attended the first of their regular meetings on Monday and worked on organizational matters.  Representatives of their sponsoring club, the Natchitoches Kiwanis were on hand to assist in setting up of committees and discovering projects the local club wants to pursue.

Their first project is to collect socks and underwear for the youngest school children at Red River Elementary.  Plans were made to make and decorate donation boxes to place at several businesses in town.  They decided this is to be an ongoing project and possibly donate socks and underwear to other schools in the parish.

Red River Kiwanis is still recruiting initial members of the club.  They will meet on the third Monday of each month at 5 pm.  Meetings will be held at First Methodist Church in Coushatta.
