The event will be conducted from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., and the Kiwanis Club of Kingston will provide financial support as well as judges for the competitions. This is the eighth year for Creative Building, whose competitors are students in grades K-6, and the third Creative Machine event which is open to students in grades 5-8.

Ulster and Kingston Kiwanis served their 38th annual Holiday Dinner for senior citizens


Senior citizens in the area enjoyed a delicious meal and a holiday atmosphere as the Kiwanis Clubs of Ulster and Kingston presented their 38th annual holiday dinner at John A. Coleman Catholic High Saturday.

Baked ham with all the trimmings was on the menu while Santa Claus visited each table and a musical duo sang standards and Christmas favorites for the 340 seniors that showed up for two seatings.

“We’ve been doing this for a long time and it’s a really good event for the community,” said Kiwanis community service chairman Joe Diacovo. “So many of the senior citizens come back year after year, not only for the food, but for the company and to just have a good time. Our members also enjoy coming out and helping all of the seniors in the community.”

Diacovo said the event planning began nearly a year ago, with members of both local clubs playing a part in the planning process, purchasing food, preparing meals and serving.

Members of the Kingston High Key Club assisted as this year’s dinner.

Admission to the event was free and the club welcomed seniors from all over the local area.



2015 Kiwanian of the Year - Gabriele Raub


The Kingston Kiwanis Club presented the 2015 Bud Jones Kiwanian of the Year award to Gabriele Raub on Thursday, June 18, at the Wiltwyck Golf Club in Kingston.

Since 1975, the Club has recognized a Kiwanian member who strives to embody the ideals of the Club, and has lived the motto “we serve” with such constancy and dedication that all members should look to them for reflection on what service means to the community.

Ms. Raub joined Kiwanis in 2001 and has been a dedicated and active member. She has served on the board of directors, is chair of the Youth Services committee and sits on several other committees.

This annual traditional is named in honor of Bud Jones who brought a fresh source of inspiration to the Club and encouraged a deeper understanding of its merit to members.


The Kingston Kiwanis Club celebrates Gabriele Raub, the 2015 recipient of the 
Bud Jones Kiwanian of the Year along with past winners of this distinguished 
L to R: Robert Carlzon, Bill Kearney, Joe Fay, Rich Gillette, Ron Swart, Steve Fine, Gary Mulligan, Ken Backofen, Gabriele Raub,
