Model School Key Club Assists
Kiwanis 2010 Annual Roadblock

Three members of the Model School Key Club pose before they work at the annual Kiwanis Roadblock for Kids. They are (l.to r.) Drew Dison, Allia Vaez, and Amy Dong, President of the Key Club.

This year the various participants raised slightly in excess of $1,000 which was donated to the City of Richmond Parks and Recreation Department to support the annual Halloween event for children. The city had decided to do away with this event due to a budget shortfall, so the Kiwanis Club of Richmond stepped in to become a major sponsor of the annual Richmond Halloween Hoe Down which will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 23.Model Key Club Members Assist at the 2008 Richmond Kiwanis Club Pancake Breakfast

Spring 2004 Project

Childhood favorites shared, celebrated

Much of Eastern had an appointment with one doctor this week - Dr. Seuss.

Twice this week, the campus community celebrated the life and numerous works of the childhood author on what would be his 100th birthday. People of all ages gathered in the Kennamer Room of the Powell Building Tuesday and today to remember the childhood favorite by entertaining themselves with his many books. Students, faculty and staff teamed with children from Model Laboratory School and the Burrier Child Development Center to read and discuss Seuss books.

This is the second time Eastern hosted the Seuss event. This year's Seussentenial was sponsored by the Office of Volunteerism, the Student Government Association and the Model Lab Key Club. "It's a good way to share the gift of reading and instill a love of learning in kids at a young age," said Amber Jones, coordinator for volunteerism at Eastern, in a press release.
