WILMINGTON — The Kiwanis Club of Wilmington received a grant from the Ohio Kiwanis Foundation in the spring to fund supplemental programming and supplies to Harvest of Gold and Clinton County Youth Council.

Harvest of Gold was able to buy a new printer and educational supplies to help with their summer tutoring program.

Clinton County Youth Council used Kiwanis grant dollars to supplement their after-school Art Club program. They replenished art supplies with new paints, paintbrushes, canvases, and modeling clay.

The Kiwanis Club of Wilmington has established a long-term working relationship with both supplemental educational groups that been serving the children of the area for many years.

During the summer, Kiwanis member and local pastor Joel Richter spent time and shared his love of various drums with the children at Harvest of Gold.

Kirstin Harris, another Kiwanis member, organized the local Kiwanis Club’s first swim lesson project in cooperation with Eric Guindon of CCYC.

The Kiwanis Club of Wilmington continues to reach and serve the children of Clinton County.
