Meredith McCleary, along with Central Broward Foundation Board Chairman Amos Bonner and wife Bessie had a reason to cheer! Over 20 members of the Kiwanis Club Central Broward (KCCB) joined with other Kiwanis members, friends, and supporters in the celebration of the 100th Kiwanis Anniversary and Project EMNT. McCleary’s recognition for her outstanding community service was one of the highlights of the day.
The event, held at the E. Pat Larkin Center by the Pompano clubs, resulted in KCCB sending over $1,000 in ticket sales to the Pompano Kiwanis Foundation and a check from the Central Broward Kiwanis Foundation for $2,000. The check was presented to Kiwanis International Foundation Chair Bob Parton.
To date, the club has presented close to $8,000 for Project Eliminate. All funds will assist in the fight against maternal and neonatal (baby) tetanus. It only takes $1.60 to save the life of a child by giving the tetanus shots.
Just think how many babies were helped to save with the event’s giving.
Central Broward, Meredith and friends who attended and/or donated — should be proud. The club had the largest group turnout of nearly 50 in attendance to include Supervisor of Elections Dr. Brenda Snipes, Commissioners Beverly Williams, and Dr. Edwina Coleman of Lauderdale Lakes, Attorney George Allen and their spouses. Other Central Broward guests included Meredith’s brother and nephew, and members of Broward Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta.
