The Lions and Kiwanis Clubs of Bellmore made a donation to the Central High School District’s CHAMP Program at the June 5 board of education meeting. 

They presented a $1,000 check to the Culinary and Hospitality Applied Management Program, which is housed at Kennedy High School.
Students from the program volunteered last weekend at the Nassau County Strawberry Festival, assisting the clubs with their weekend fair and fundraising efforts.

“Students made nearly 1,300 pieces of cake and 40 gallons of whipped cream, as well as prepared 80 pounds of strawberries for assorted uses,” explained Andrew Meyerowitz, Kiwanis Club president, who is also a Kennedy graduate.
