Kiwanis ‘buddies’ with WCS, EC schools


At the Ohio District Kiwanis Convention, the Kiwanis Club of Wilmington was awarded a grant from the Ohio District Foundation to assist in purchasing “buddy benches” at two elementary buildings for Wilmington City Schools and the Sabina and New Vienna Elementary buildings for the East Clinton School District. They will be placed in the playgrounds for children having a bad day and needing someone to play with. When seeing someone on the bench, all children will understand this as a signal that the child needs a playmate. Shown accepting a check is East Clinton Superintendent Eric Magee with, from left, Kiwanians Ruth Curtis, Kim Hiatt and Terri Thobaben.
