Dr. Marguerite Carlton (right) and Dr. Ted Kalutz (left), buy tickets for Tuesday’s Kiwanis pancake supper from Kiwanis club member Dr. Bobby Joseph (center). Carlton and Kalutz, who practice with Pediatric Associates of Camden, are well aware of the health threat posed by maternal and neonatal tetanus  (MNT). As Carlton explained, unsanitary birthing facilities and practices, coupled with lack of tetanus immunizations in many developing countries, put millions of newborns and their mothers at risk. Proceeds from the supper, as well as other contributions being accepted by the Kiwanis Club, will be used to fund the Kiwanis International/UNICEF partnership aimed at eliminating MNT from the globe, through tetanus immunizations and birthing education. Tickets for the supper, to be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church, are $6 for adults and $4 for children 6 and younger. They are available at First Citizens Bank and SAFE Federal Credit Union. Tax-deductible donations may also be made at the supper or by mailing a check, made to the Kiwanis International Foundation, to the Camden Kiwanis Club, P.O. Box 494, Camden, SC 29021.
