Book Drive for International Service Project March 27 – April 7

   Tinley

A BOOK DRIVE to benefit Hailey Head Start and 3 to 5 year old children in our community will take place March 27 through April 7.

Rotary Club of Hailey, Kiwanis of Hailey Idaho, and CSI Head Start/Early Head Start Hailey Campus are volunteering together as a special international service event during the International Week of Service, March 25-31.

Collection Boxes decorated by Head Start students will be available at these places of business throughout the valley including: Atkinsons in Ketchum, Hailey and Bellevue; Albertson’s; Natural Grocers; Community Library Ketchum; Hailey Public Library; Bellevue Public Library; Senior Connections Hailey; Jane’s Place Hailey; YMCA Ketchum; CSI Campus Head Start Center; Swiftsure Bellevue; Chapter One Books Ketchum.

Head Start is looking for new or gently used books that are hard back and large enough to read aloud to a group of children. Themes around religion and holidays or with scary or intense imagery should be avoided. A book with few words doesn’t mean it isn’t powerful. A picture story allows for valuable dialogue.
Service clubs around the world are encouraged to partner together to make a bigger impact.

This service event allows men and women to learn more about the work of Rotary Club of Hailey, Kiwanis of Hailey and CSI Head Start Hailey and how to get involved in their community.
“In such a well animated world, kids need to see and hold books so that they can develop all of the senses that contribute to a well-rounded ability to communicate,” said Head Start’s Jennifer Peterson. “There are so many vivid stories to be shared, with compelling graphic art, and poignant connections to be made. We are competing with Pixar for kids’ attention. Having an engaging book in the hands of an animated teacher brings them around. It sparks imaginations and expands avenues to learning about the world.”

In addition to addressing needs in the community, the International Week of Service is an opportunity for service organizations around the globe to make connections, exchange ideas and discuss the best ways to make a difference.

“Our organizations have worked on a variety of projects in this community,” said Suzanne Walsh, Rotary Club of Hailey president. “It’s great to work together and get to know each other better. We look forward to continuing to work together on promotion of literacy in our community, starting with the pre-school age group.”

“We hope through partnership with our local service groups that we can reach many more children and inspire a love of reading through fun, interactive story times and add books to provide a literary resource for the children. We believe it is so very important to the academic success of our youngest citizens” said Geegee Lowe, Kiwanis of Hailey and the Wood River Valley.

New Soccer Goals for Blaine County Rec District and the KIDS!

bob-soccer-goal-grant

CHEERS to Bob Wiederrick of Wiederricks’ Custom Metalworks and Kiwanis of Hailey Idaho. Bob accepted $3,000 from the John William Jackson Fund for soccer goals for the Blaine County Rec District. The Fund was established in memory of Bill and Jackie’s son John in the Fall of 2000 by friends and family. What a joyous evening of giving. This fund grew from $2700 their first year to $142,000 this year and it’s mainly through recycling and the loving efforts of Bill, a.k.a. Action, and Jackie Jackson and the wonderful people who support them. They gave to academics, music instrument purchase, outdoor sports and performing arts. The picture is of Jackie Jackson, Bob Wiederrick, Bill Jackson, Virgi Blaine, Bill Kreamer, and Tish Davis.

Kiwanis catches the “Eye on Sun Valley”

STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

The Kiwanis Club of Hailey is on a roll with the city’s parks.

The Club is now raising funds to buy new playground equipment for Heagle Park in Hailey.

Kiwanis members want to raise at least $20,000 to purchase a new play structure, swing set, benches and spring rider.

The club has already received $3,000 from the Little Black Dress Club, said Kiwanis member Bob Wiederrick. It also has received $2,000 from The Papoose Club, $2,000 from the Heart of Gold Foundation and $2,500 from Kiwanis international.

Additional income comes from the aluminum cans that valley residents contribute to a collection bin at 4051 Glenbrook Drive in the Woodside Business Park near Power Engineers.

The City of Hailey has budgeted $15,000 to install the equipment once it’s purchased.

The Kiwanis Club cut the ribbon last fall on new playground equipment at Foxmoor Park, which sits on the south end of East Ridge Drive. It provided new equipment for nearby Deerfield Park the year before.
