EOC Kiwanis Interclubs with Wildkat Aktion Club

Five members of the Kiwanis Club of East Orange County (Gene, LuAnn, Beth, Stacy, and Brent) visited the Wildkat Aktion Club on Thursday, 1/12 to help them plan their upcoming fundraiser and make valentines for their sweethearts.  Aktion Club is a special kind a Kiwanis club - for special individuals.  The Wildkat Aktion Club meets at the Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida, and the Wildkat membership consists of high-functioning young adults with Down Syndrome.  They are a lively group who inspires all of us to be the best that we can - and that even the greatest of obstacles can be overcome.  We even got to see Peter (one of the Wildkats) get back together with his girlfriend Britney - it was a very touching moment.

Photos from the event are below:

The Wildkats will be joining us at the "Kids Against Hunger" Meal Packaging Project and BBQ Social at Ft. Christmas on 1/28.  We'll also keep our EOC Kiwanis membership posted when we schedule our next Interclub with the Wildkats!
