Holiday season is a very busy time of the year for the New York District Aktion Clubs.
The Aktion Club of Sullivan County visited residents at the local nursing home and singing some Christmas and Chanukah songs while we mingle with the residents. They also had prepared Thanksgiving baskets for families in the local school districts.
The Lifetime Assistance Aktion Club marched in the annual Brockport Holiday lights parade with its sponsoring Kiwanis club. They planned a collection of items in January for children in the Golisano Children’s Hospital.
The FEC/HRW Aktion Club members spent days before Thanksgiving collecting food items they had agreed to contribute so the Club could make Thanksgiving Dinner baskets for three needy families in the area. On Dec. 19, the members of the club, along with Santa Claus, visited a home to share song and small gifts and sing traditional holiday songs. They presented small gifts and cards to the residents.
The East Meadow Aktion Club raised more than $800 at their bingo fundraiser.
Please continue to support our Aktion clubs, as they are doing a great job. For any information on chartering a new club, please feel free to contact me.
I also welcome Jaimie Neuringer of the Brighton Kiwanis club as the co-chair for Aktion Clubs in the district. She is available to assist the formation and operation of Aktion Clubs upstate.
