Spotlight on inspirational kids

KIDS IN Community needs new members to fill some of the roles Maria Kelly has assumed in the past few years.

Roles of some other members who are moving in other directions will also need to be filled, otherwise this year's awards may be in doubt.

KIC's annual general meeting will be at 5.30pm, March 19, at Mary Gilhooley's.

President Des Kelly said he hoped to have some new members at the AGM to help with key roles.

"KIC formed in 2000 by five local women seeking to highlight how young people make positive contributions to the community," Mr Kelly said.

"Our mission is to elevate the image of youth by celebrating those who positively address issues affecting young people and their communities in ways that strengthen and inspire the rest of the community.

"Many young people have benefited greatly from KIC over the 12 years but without new members coming on board, that too could be in jeopardy."

Mrs Kelly, the last remaining founding member on the committee, has been the secretary and treasurer of KIC Inc for many years.

Since the formation of KIC Northern Rivers in 2010, she has been administrator and bookkeeper on that as well.

"She's been the fundraising co-ordinator and is heavily involved in the nomination process and, although no one is indispensable, some people are hard to replace and that is the situation we have here," Mr Kelly said.

For information, contact Des Kelly on 6624 4053 or 041 007 6868 or info@kic.com.au.
