Ashland Kiwanis, along with fellow Ashlanders, held a “Postcard Buddies” pizza lunch with the Ashland Middle School sixth graders on May 1.
Thanks to Kiwanian Don Paul, who started the program about 13 years ago, the Kiwanians are assigned a sixth grader each year and send a postcard to him or her at the beginning of each month. Postcards are typically from a recent vacation from around the world. The students then research the postcard information and write a story about it.
Finally, near the end of the school year, the Kiwanians provide a pizza lunch and get to meet their buddies.
