Lebanon Kiwanis members, who called it quits in October, make a final donation of the service club’s remaining funds Dec. 11 to Obria Medical Clinics of  Lebanon (formerly Pregnancy Alternatives Center). After more than six decades of service, the Lebanon Kiwanis Club disbanded due to low membership, which made it difficult to maintain club goals, said Gordon Sletmoe, former member. They had about seven active members at the time. The Kiwanis Club also distributed funds to the Lebanon Schools Foundation, Sletmoe said, in line with the organization’s focus on children.
