Wednesday, November 15, 2017
12:00 P.M.

An old television show called "Dennis the Menace" featured a tow-headed
brat who shouted to his neighbor as he entered the beleaguered gentleman's
home...HELLO, MR. WILSON!

You get to say that on Wednesday when our fellow Kiwanian Mr. Wilson shares
photos and words on his recent trip to Ireland. David Lee Wilson is a past
president of the Kiwanis Club of Wilmington and a Past Lt. Governor of the
old Seventh Division. Do come come to the Hotel duPont on 11/15/17, share
lunch and learn of Dave's travels. No, it's definitely not one of those
vacation slde shows that makes you sneak out the back door stealthily.
Dave Wilson does a good job at everything he does. And you can shout,
"HELLO, MR. WILSON." Was Dennis the menace Irish?

Maggie Ratnayake (Director) of Lari's Hands

Lori’s Hands transforms students’ understanding of
community health by matching them with individuals living
with chronic illness in meaningful, helping relationships.
Community members receive in-home support and,
in turn, educate next-generation health leaders
about the experience of living with chronic illness.

Vision: Lori's Hands envisions a world in which all
individuals diagnosed with chronic illness can achieve
high quality of life while aging in place in their communities.
