The Sundling Jr. High School Builders Club, sponsored by the Palatine Kiwanis Club served up made-to-order ice cream sundaes to the seniors of the Palatine community at the Palatine Township Senior Center on May 20, 2013. They went out of their way to make sure each sundae was perfect and had many toppings to choose from and also served beverages.
The Kiwanis Club has supported the Builders Club at the Sundling Junior High for 23 years. The Builders Club is like a mini-Kiwanis Club that does service projects for the school and community. The Builders Club is run by Nancy Biancalana, teacher at Sundling, who said "This is the 13th annual ice cream social we have had!"
The Palatine Kiwanis Club has been in the community for 53 years, and is part of Kiwanis International, a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one community and one child at a time. The Kiwanis Club of Palatine performs many service projects in our community to help serve children, needy families, and the elderly. They raise between $30,000-$50,000 per year and donate it to the community and offer two college scholarships. The Kiwanis Club meets at Emmett's Tavern and Brewing Co, 110 N. Brockway St., Palatine, IL 60067 every Tuesday at 7pm and the 1st and 2nd week of the month at noon. Visit www.palatinekiwanis.com for more information.
