Christmas got a little brighter on Tuesday evening as the Elizabethtown Kiwanis Club helped to spread holiday joy.

The Kiwanians treated some young ladies from the Lake Waccamaw Boys and Girls Homes to a shopping experience at Leinwand’s for new clothes. Then they shared a catered holiday meal with the Kiwanians at the Cape Fear Farmer’s Market.

The youth introduced themselves and spoke about what they wanted to do when they graduate before the feast began. The girls spoke briefly about their career plans and have promising futures.

The Kiwanians were also joined by the East Bladen High School Key Club. The Key Club has officially completed their requirements to become a chartered club.

Before leaving, the ladies were given more gifts from the local civic group. Beauty products such as lotion and jewelry items helped to complete the holiday cheer.

The club also hosted Kiwanis Governor Mary Jo Brubaker and her husband, Greg, and Governor -elect Greg McDonald and his wife, Margaret.

“I want to thank this club in particular for all of the emphasis you give to this event. They (the young ladies) are our future,” said Brubaker.

During the meeting, Kiwanian Dr. Lisa Bryan was recognized with the Gift of Kiwanis Award.
