Cookin’ Up Some Support

Kiwanis Aktion ClubPearlie Davidson, President of the local Aktion Club, is pleased to announce that club members and advisors will be selling cookbooks prepared by using recipes contributed by Indiana District Aktion Club members. These great cookbooks are selling for $10.00 each and all proceeds will be used to help the community service projects selected by members of the club. Included in their projects are; the Salvation Army food pantry, the Shelby County Animal Shelter, the Headstart Program for local pre-school children, the Riley Hospital for Children, the Ronald McDonald House and the Shelby County Special Olympics.

The book contains 250 favorite recipes of all kinds from over 100 members and advisors in Indiana, including several from the local Shelbyville club. The book has been professionally printed by a publishing firm in Tennessee and besides the recipes there is also information about Aktion Club and 16 pages of special information all about food.

In a recent study, it was found that the average home has 15 cookbooks. This makes the category of cookbooks one of the favorite and most popular books kept in most homes. If you don’t have at least 15, you may want to consider purchasing one of these from the Aktion Club. The cost is $10.00 and you can purchase one by calling Don Collins at 398-6708.

The Shelbyville VC Aktion Club was charted on September 9, 2009 and is composed of members living a disability. A grant from the Blue River Community Foundation helped get the club up and running. There are currently 28 members and they meet twice-monthly at the Briley Fellowship Hall, Trinity United Methodist Church. Their meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. New members are invited to attend and all persons, age 18 and up, are welcomed.

Besides giving back to their community, the members also learn a variety of leadership skills, enjoy the fun and fellowship of the Kiwanis family and have the opportunity to be further integrated into their community. The club is jointly sponsored by the Shelbyville Kiwanis Club and Shares, Inc. In addition to being part of Aktion Club, the members are also part of the Self Advocates of Indiana, an organization dedicated to helping people who live with disabilities.

In addition to the local activities, club members also have an annual district training conference held at Kiwanis International in Indianapolis and in June members will be in New Orleans for an International Conference being held jointly with Kiwanis International and Circle K International.
