Each year on the fourth Saturday in October, volunteers from coast to coast pull out their "can-do" spirits and vow to improve their communities on Make A Difference Day, a national day of service. On Oct. 25, local Modern Woodmen of American members joined in this nationwide effort. Members of the Kimball Modern Woodmen 3257-1 made a difference by providing light bulbs to famlies in the community. Modern Woodmen groups nationwide help their communities and individuals in need by delivering light bulbs and stationery to shut-ins, conducting winter clothing drives, donating books to local libraries and other activities. "On Make A Difference Day, our members can look forward to feeling good by doing good and being part of a nationally recognized event," says Gerhard Ziemann, local ModernWooemen contact person. Founded in 1883 as a fraternal benefit society, Modern Woodmen of America offers financial servuces and fraternal member benefits to individuals and families throughout the United States.
