'Alive with Learning for All' campaign gets boost from Bay Kiwanis
Lake Erie Nature & Science Center received a $2,000 contribution to the Center’s “Alive with Learning for All” campaign from the Bay Kiwanis Club in June.
The campaign will be used to fund renovation of the Center’s educational program areas and build the endowment. Bay Kiwanis decided to direct their gift to the planetarium, which will be transformed with a new digital projection system for full dome learning experiences.
“Bay Kiwanis’ gift will allow us to utilize astounding advances in digital technology in our space and space science programs,” said Executive Director Catherine Timko. “Our Planetarium staff members are understandably excited about the capabilities of the systems we have reviewed.”
Bay Kiwanis President-elect Rhonda Schneider and Community Services Committee Chairman Jim Potter chose to support the Planetarium because of its impact on members of the community.
