Some thought it couldn’t be done, but on the last day of Hanukkah, Rabbi Eric Solomon and Pastor Christopher Edmonton wove together the stories of Hanukkah and Christmas as celebrations that bring light and hope to the world.

The Kiwanis Club of Raleigh is grateful to them for bringing scripture and history together in an enlightening way, and to our members for choosing to spread light and hope through our community.

Dreams will come true!

Christy Story, Principal of Poe Magnet Elementary School accepted a check for $3100 from Raleigh Kiwanis President LeJon Poole on Wednesday, December 16th. Kiwanian Dick Heidgard shared the need with our members, and our members quickly stepped up with donations to help meet the need.

Linda Heidgerd, School Social Worker at Poe Elementary School was looking for ways to help students this holiday season. The school was unable to organize their traditional Angel Tree this year because of stresses related to COVID-19.

Thank you Kiwanians!

RaeLana Poteat of the NC Museum of history shared that one of the first organized efforts to earn the vote for women occurred on October 10, 1913 in Goldsboro, NC.

Anti-Suffragists didn’t want the exploration of who can vote in the South, and after the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution was ratified on August 26th, 1920, it took 51 years for the North Carolina General Assembly to ratify the amendment. Kiwanis Club of Raleigh Immediate Past-President Phil Kirk participated by voting for the amendment in 1971 during his tenure as state senator.

Thanks Phil!!!

If you have never interacted with someone from another race before you reach adulthood you are likely to be at a disadvantage in terms of ability to empathize.

Ralph Burgess has written books for children to help them navigate the perils of childhood—being bullied or being coerced into joining a gang.

Thank you Ralph for Zooming with the Kiwanis Club of Raleigh today, and for sharing your baseball wisdom!
