President’s Message – September 2021

It’s welcome back time; our so-called summer hiatus is ending and our second year of fundraising for Critical Care and the PICU is in full swing!  I use the word hiatus loosely because even though most groups don’t meet during the summer months A LOT of Kindervelt things still happen. As a new Board member recently realized and stated, “Kindervelt never sleeps!”

It was wonderful meeting in-person again with the new Board of Trustees on Aug. 30th and I look forward to seeing all the group presidents at our kick-off Leadership Meeting on Sept. 13th!

Project forms are coming in assuring us that lots of planning is happening for some fun activities.  The fall is always such a busy time of the year, so I can’t thank you all enough for squeezing in the extra time to fulfill Kindervelt obligations.

Speaking of “squeezing,” I must mention sincere thanks to KV 50 member Hillary Weidner and her friend Amanda Zerbe for their work this past week helping their children run the 3rd Annual LemonAID stand which supports CCHMC.  This year they announced the proceeds will go to KV 50 and support our division!!  What an amazing job they did and thanks to everyone that supported the project too!

Enjoy the last few days of summer and bring on all the fun Fall activities remembering that we are making a difference!
