The Whitewater Middle School Builders Club, part of the Kiwanis family, volunteered to work at the weekly Spaghetti Dinner at the Congregational Church in Whitewater on Monday, December 9. The students served nearly 200 free meals to members of the Whitewater Community.
Ben Holzem, Associate Principal of Whitewater Middle School, said, “Our kids did a great job and worked very hard the whole night. It was great hearing the people who worked at the church and community members eating at the dinner saying things like ‘they really have great kids at the middle school’. The best part was that this was reported to me by several students who overheard the adults talking.”
Builders Club is a new group at the Middle School this year. The primary focus is providing students with public service opportunities. In a relatively short period of time the club has grown to over 20 members in grades 6-8. The group is a partner with the Whitewater Kiwanis Breakfast Club.
