The Taylorville Kiwanis Club held their monthly business meeting at their weekly luncheon on Tuesday at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.

Kiwanis committee chairs gave updates on what their particular committee is doing to benefit children and youth in the local community.

It was announced that last weekend’s Kiwanis Peanut Days fund-raiser saw over 4-thousand dollars in cash donations, plus a host of business donations. Final numbers are not known yet, but Peanut Days chairperson Dan Sneed expects the final net number to exceed last year’s 59-hundred dollars. The Taylorville Kiwanis Club thanks all those who contributed to last weekend’s Kiwanis fund raiser.

Allen Miller, regional manager for Aaron’s in Taylorville and Litchfield, was inducted as the club’s newest member. It was also announced that Doctor Gregg Fuerstenau has resigned from the club due to job and personal obligations.

The Kiwanis Club’s annual car seat safety check will take place October 29th, with more information on times and location forthcoming.

And the Taylorville Kiwanis High School Key Club has been busy, too. They provided some 28 man-hours at last weekend’s Kiwanis Peanut Days, had over 50 members attend a recent Key Club cookout, and will be trick or treating for UNICEF over the Halloween holiday.

The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Weekly meetings of the Kiwanis Club are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital Auditorium.
