Cromwell-Kimmell Lions Club Fund
The purpose of this fund is to provide scholarships for West Noble Seniors as provided through the Cromwell-Kimmell Lions Club.
Donor Fund Story:
This fund was started by Carol Stults, a 32-year member of the Cromwell-Kimmell Lions Club. Carol inherited some money, so she decided to start a fund at the Noble County Community Foundation. She said, “If you put it [money] into a bank, it’s not going to do anything, but if you put it in a community foundation, it would be there forever.
The Cromwell-Kimmell Lion’s Club is very involved in the community. They try to help as many as they can and have fundraisers so that they can give back to the community. Senior Citizen Party, fruit basket give-away, scholarships, collection of old eyeglasses, Bingo Feather Party, and the Stone’s Trace Fundraiser are some of the ways that the Cromwell-Kimmell Lion’s Club reaches out to the community.
The Lion’s club also trains children to reach out to their community through the Leo Program (Little Lions). Tina Kreischer and Cindy Anderson have been the two advisors for the Leo Program in the Cromwell-Kimmell, which is where children 12-18 can participate in community outreaches.
Carol appreciates Noble County, because it’s where she has lived all of her life and she thinks it’s a great place to live. She grew up on a farm and was a participant in 4-H. Her dad, George, was a farmer, a bus driver, and a former Lion. Her mother, Althea, was a homemaker. Carol has one sister, Lois Jean, and she now resides in Illinois.
