Friday, September 23rd is officially “Hat Day” at Blackman Middle School. This third year event, hosted by the Builder’s Club, raises funds for Heavenly Hats which is a non-profit that gives hats to children with Cancer. During Hat Day, students donate one dollar to the organization and are allowed to wear a hat all day at school. The club has been recognized in years past for their large donations and hope to exceed last year’s collection.
Radio host Ralph Bristol addressed our club today about Music City Honor Flight (www.musiccityhf.com). This organization flies WWII veterans from Nashville to Washington DC so they can visit the WWII Memorial. The organization has a fundraiser coming up Oct. 2. The flier is posted on our site under news.
The Blackman Middle School Builders Club hosted a bowling party for its members and their families. This was a great way for new members to make friends in the club and allowed parents to meet the school and Kiwanis advisor. Everyone had a great time!!! Some of the LHS Key Club Officers joined the party for a K-Family inter club social!!!!
With a new faculty advisor for the year, the BMS Builders Club is off to a strong start! Kiwanis is pleased to welcome Elizabeth Brewer to our team this year! Mrs. Wright (our regular advisor) is taking the year off with her new baby boy. At the club’s first meeting members took some time getting to know each other through an icebreaker and then dove right into service by making cards for a local nursing home and for their parents. The club will be holding a back to school bowling party Monday, September 12th from 6-8 p.m. at Strike and Spare on NW Broad Street.
Officers and advisors of the LHS Key Club were blown away when close to 130 potential members attended the first two meetings of the club! Last year the club started with around 70 members, so the growth is very exciting for the club! We expect to see great things from this growing club this year!
Our club welcomed Senator Bob Corker August 24. Corker addressed a full Five Senses Restaurant and also shared his birthday celebration with us.
