CALDWELL, NJ — Over the last month, the Kiwanis Club of Caldwell-West Essex has installed new officers, honored participants in local community service endeavors, heard presentations from local business leaders and more.

At the most recent meeting, the Kiwanis Club of Caldwell-West Essex donated a windscreen for the community tennis court to the North Caldwell Recreation Department.

Prior to that, the club visited Verona High School to host a Charter Ceremony, where Kiwanis officially organized a Verona High School Key Club. It was attended by the Key Club Lt. Governor and the president of the Verona Board of Education. Kiwanis members in attendance were Garrett Jones, Chris MacIntyre, Mary Ann Luke, Pat Collura and Bob Hodge. Students included Dasha Yaknnis, Julia Cambreleng, Tyler Jackson, Alex Ng, Brian Feury and Mr. Maher.

One of the events held last month was to congratulate the members of the club who participated in the largest food collection in the last five years. 

According to Kiwanis, 15 carloads of food were delivered to the Caldwell Food Pantry during the food drive with the help from the Circle K Club and the West Essex High School Key Club.

The Kiwanis motto is “Serving the Children of the World.” For additional Information, visit www.caldwellkiwanis.org.

Would Shedding

How much wood wouldn’t a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck woodn’t?

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
