Each Christmas morning several members of
the Central Ridge-Crystal River Club start early in the
morning preparing a full course turkey dinner for lonely
residents living in the Beverly Hills area. They prepare and
serve the meal until 2pm.
This year they received a check for $1,000
from the sister of Warren Buffet as an appreciative
recipient wrote to the foundation and asked for the donation
on behalf of the Kiwanis Club. Additionally the club
received several warm kudos from the community. This is
highlighted by a letter to the editor that appeared in the
local newspaper: “Kiwanis, what an outstanding organization.
They unselfishly help others across the nation, giving up
dinner with family, receiving no pay to feed those who are
alone on Christmas Day."
Passing on the spirit of Christmas by
sharing, bringing smiles to people’s faces, because of
caring. On this very special day we’re all family to them.
The Kiwanis organization is a priceless gem. A delicious
meal is cooked with lots of love. You would think they are
angels from above. A better meal you wouldn’t find at any
eatery spot. It’s just like mom used to make, served up hot.
They are generous people with a kind heart.
They deserve this praise, and it’s just a start. Many thanks
Kiwanis for all you do. We had a
Merry Christmas all because of you.
Help us make a difference.
