KIWANIS CLUB OF NEW PROVIDENCE CHILDREN'S BOOK DONATION DRIVE


During The Kiwanis Club of New Providence Children’s Book Donation Drive outside Logos Book Store, Harbour Bay Shopping Centre, Nassau, recently, I bought a copy of “Alice's Adventures in Wonderland” from Logos and dropped it into their donation box. I told the Kiwanis ladies how my mother sent me to elocution lessons when we moved from Scotland to England because my Scottish accent had become mixed up with a Birmingham accent and it was difficult to understand what I said! I can’t remember how old I was, but I was younger than ten. I had to memorize pages of “Alice's Adventures in Wonderland” in order to recite them during my elocution lessons!

The Club’s Vice President Dominique Rolle was delighted with my little Alice in Wonderland tale and asked if I could give a video interview about it. I agreed and here it is! - FAY'S VIDEO INTERVIEW AT KIWANIS BOOK DONATION DRIVE

The Kiwanis Club of New Providence is a non-profit organization that is a part of Kiwanis International. They are a service club that gives back to the community through service projects – a wonderful group of very dedicated and hard working ladies!

BUY A BOOK FOR A CHILD!

The dedicated Kiwanis volunteers asked to take a photo
 of me dropping a children’s book into their box!


The Kiwanis Club of New Providence are having another Children’s Book Donation Drive on Saturday, January 12th, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Logos Book Store, Harbour Bay (they had one today). They are also having the Book Donation Drive at Bookworld Stationers.

Children’s books are not necessarily expensive. At today’s Book Donation Drive, I bought “Alice in Wonderland” from Logos for just under $9 and there were some as low as around $5.

For further information on the Kiwanis Book Donation Drive, telephone 242-477-4614. It’s a very worthwhile cause. I hope one of the children will enjoy Alice in Wonderland as much as I did!
