Spaghetti fundraiser a success for student service group

Greenville High School Key Club…
By Bob Robinson

GHS Key Club held its first fundraising event of the year, and one of its most successful ever, courtesy of the First United Methodist Church in Greenville. It was a student-organized and prepared spaghetti dinner.

“The food was great,” said Kiwanis President Mike Snyder. “They really did a good job this evening.”

He was first in line, then supported by other Kiwanians throughout the evening. Greenville Kiwanis is the sponsoring organization for the Key Club. Also enjoying the student-prepared dinner were family, friends, community members and Darke County Commissioner Diane Delaplane and her family.

The club has been preparing for the fundraiser for several months. About a dozen members showed up about 10 a.m. Saturday and worked throughout the day preparing the food and setting up the church’s basement dining area. Among the young workers were three officers in Key Club International, all GHS students: Mariah Reitz, KCI Ohio District Secretary, Natasha Swank, 2011-12 Div. 3 Lt. Gov., and Darpan Kaur, 2012-13 Div. 3 Lt. Gov.

Dinner was served for ticket-holders and walk-ins from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. More than 100 tickets were sold and, throughout the 4-hour period, Key Clubbers served nearly two dozen “walk-in” meals. Desserts – many homemade – were available to wrap up the meal or take home.

Dylan Hoover, Greenville High School IMTV, was there to do video work for the GHS student web site, Digital Waves.

Joe Payne, pastor at First United Methodist and past-president of Greenville Kiwanis, said he was happy to offer their location to the club.

“They’ve been working hard and have done a good job,” he said.

GHS Key Club is a student-run community service organization. While its purpose is to serve the community in a variety of ways, the club also raises funds to help support charities and local members attending District events. This year’s Key Club officers are: Claire Sherman, president, Scott Wirrig, vice president, Dan Cox, treasurer, Pankti Bhavsar and Cierra Whitesell, co-secretaries, and Jenilee Braun, newsletter editor.
