President’s Message – December 2020

It’s been an unforgettable year, but as we move toward the holiday season, I take pride knowing that our membership continues to work hard to make a difference despite the restrictions due to the pandemic.

Last month I had the chance to participate in my first ever Road Rally thanks to Kindervelt #08. What a great idea. I spent a few hours one afternoon with my parents helping me navigate and look for observation clues. We enjoyed a few laughs, especially when we realized we were a bit “off course” for a short while. It was a very enjoyable way to spend some time with family while fundraising for our cause.

KV Krafts is winding down for the year with their final shows coming up at Findlay Market on Dec. 5 and 6. Sincere thanks to Diana Peters, her committee, the group Krafts Reps and all that participated in making so many items to sell at all the shows. Special thanks to Tracy Smith for creating an online store for the CCHMC employees to shop our crafts since we were not able to hold our events there this

year. Thanks also to Keith Henize who is distributing the sold items for us at the hospital.

Alas, Andi Mapes, Chair for “Let the Good Times Bowl,” had to make the tough decision to postpone the event in February of 2021. Good news though, she has agreed to chair the event for 2022 and it will be back, big as ever! That’s the spirt Andi!

I’m so sorry that we won’t be able to gather for group holiday meetings/parties this month as it’s so important for us to celebrate together, but please continue to spread the Kindervelt love throughout the holiday season. There are many opportunities to support group events and sales happening now, so please check out all the news in this edition!!

Enjoy the holidays and I wish you a very Happy New Year; a year that marks our 50th year of making a difference! We will celebrate BIG!

Katrina Smith
