Pitching in, protecting lives

Three Aktion Clubs in the Cal-Nev-Ha District helped protect mothers and babies by completing a unique service and fundraising project for The Eliminate Project. During the 90th anniversary celebration for Division 12, the Aktion Clubs of Silicon Valley, Tri-Cities, and Whittier Hope sold Cal-Nev-Ha District Eliminate Project necklaces, which had previously been made as a project at the Aktion Club district convention. Ultimately, the Division 12 Aktion Clubs raised US$1,440.32, saving or protecting 800 lives from tetanus. The clubs also raised funds by speaking to groups about the Eliminate Project.

As a part of the anniversary celebration, the Kiwanis Club of San Jose enjoyed a visit from 2012-13 Kiwanis International President Tom DeJulio. One of the district's Eliminate Project necklaces was presented to First Lady Rosemary DeJulio by Jane Malkofsky, president of the San Jose Whittier Hope Aktion Club.
