By Bill McCauley
The Bridgeville Kiwanis Club will mark its 61st year on Charter Night Monday, March 20, at Union United Methodist Church fellowship hall. Kiwanis governor Gus Lamond will join Bridgeville's own lieutenant governor Richard Beauchamp and club members for the evening that will include the announcement of the $1,000 Hixon Award winner.
In attendance will be past lieutenant governor Jim Thompson of Seaford, who will present awards. Invitations were sent out to the Delmar and Dover clubs. Bridgeville members expect to see representation from the other five Sussex County clubs plus Easton, which with the local clubs makes up District II.
Entertainment will be provided by Lynn Futy with the bell choir which she directs at the Union United Methodist Church.
Also part of the evening's agenda will be the presentation of a charter for the newly formed K-Kids for children in the elementary grades. It will be the first of its kind in the state. Woodbridge elementary teacher Mary Beth Lewis serves as faculty advisor. Lamond will help herald the formation of the K-Club, which already has 108 potential members.
Bob Hunsberger serves as president. Jeff Tull and Bob Rider are serving as chairpersons for the meeting.
At a dinner meeting on Monday evening, Feb. 21, club member Bill Vanderwende introduced Bill Rohrer of Dover, the new administrator of the Del. Nutrient Management Commission. Rohrer discussed dealing with chicken waste. He also brought members up to date on progress of the Nutrient Management Commission of which Vanderwende is chairman.
