These books should be appropriate for children of all ages up to the 8th grade reading level. Please go through your closets, attics and basements and see what you can donate to help underprivileged children.

On this cruise, Bermudians will be able to fly to Boston and CRUISE home with us (and then stay in Bermuda, of course). Although it sounds simple, it has taken a few years for Bob to get this coordinated with Norwegian Cruise Lines. In the past, there were restrictions that prevented this kind of arrangement. Let’s encourage participation, people that have gone before, tell everyone what a great time you had & tell them they should try it out! The more Kiwanians that go, the more fun we will have!” Thanks PG John for the info!June 4, 2011
