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.

Pictured are: Jo-Ann Dixon, Barbara Peck, Mildred Fitzburgh, Anne Durborow, Christine MacIntyre, Mary Ann Luke , Garret Jones, Michael Dixon, Gary Bionde, Michael Bionde, Pat Collura and Wally Brixner.

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

In November, 11th District residents will have the opportunity to choose a new congressional representative who will not only serve as a critical check on the federal level, but also determine how our distract fares ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
