The first spark-brary has arrived at the Lafayette Community Center, right next to the Tot Lot! It is a collection of books focused on social justice, equality, and racism.  There are great titles for kids, teens, and adults, that have been selected to spark discussion and action in our community.  Just a few of the books you’ll find include “White Fragility,” “Becoming Nicole,” and “A Kids Book About Racism.”  So if you are a little early in picking up your children from class, or just want a place to relax, come and enjoy some books that are sure to get you thinking.  As the 1800s English writer, Martin Farquhar Tupper once wrote “A spark is a little thing, yet it may kindle the world.”  For more information, or if you’d like to donate a book, please visit www.spark-brary.com.

See’s Candies online holiday program Moraga Kiwanis Club relies on our annual pop-up store and See’s candy fundraiser that generates funds that we give to local charities.  For safety considerations, this year we’re only participating in the See’s Candies online holiday program.  It still enables us to safely purchase See’s Candies at the same price as See’s factory stores and still help support the worthy charities our club supports.  Our charities need help more than ever during COVID. Please support this online fundraiser and visit the Kiwanis Club of Moraga Valley web site https://moragavalleykiwanis.org/ !  Thank you Lamorinda, for your ongoing support!
