Presented to our valiant Civil Servants. This meeting honors the
Police Officer, EMS and Fire Department recipients
of the Kiwanis Award for the fourth quarter of 2017. Join us as we pay tribute
to those who are singled out from each organization, choosing from people
all of whom put themselves at risk to protect us from fire, crime and
consequences of personal injury. These three awards are an attempt to
satisfy a debt to those who serve us all and are seldom recognized for
their effort. Our award winning Kiwanis Banner

February 7, 2018 at 12:00 -- Hotel DuPont
Program: Lori's Hands

Maggie Ratnayake (Director) of Lari's Hands
Maggie Ratnayake is the Director of Lori’s Hands. She became the
first full-time staff person of Lori’s Hands in April 2017. Up until
that time, Lori’s Hands was entirely volunteer operated.
Lori’s Hands transforms students’ understanding of
community health by matching them with individuals living
with chronic illness in meaningful, helping relationships.
Community members receive in-home support and,
in turn, educate next-generation health leaders
about the experience of living with chronic illness.

Vision: Lori's Hands envisions a world in which all
individuals diagnosed with chronic illness can achieve
high quality of life while aging in place in their communities.

The location will be held in the Gold Ballroom of the Hotel DuPont, and the event will begin promptly at noon. As you may know, this event honors Active Military, the National Guard and the reserve components of our Armed Forces, land, sea and air, as well as their civilian employers who lend their cooperation with respect to the drilling and training of these reservists.
