The Taylorville Kiwanis Clud held their first monthly business meeting of the new Kiwanis year, during their weekly meeting Tuesday at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.
Kiwanis committee members reported on on-going projects for childre and youth in the Taylorville community.
Kiwanis treasurer Dan Sneed reported that last month's Peanut Days fund-raiser netted the club the highest amount ever raised during that event, some 62-hundred dollars. And, for the year, the Taylorville Kiwanis Club raised about 7-thousand dollars more than the previous Kiwanis year, with the additional money expected to be used for maintenance and expansion of Kiwanis Park.
Kiwanis Park chairperson Jerry Woodard told the club that the park pavilion will be 20 years old next year, and will need major repairs to the floor. Woodard added that ideas are being put together for expanding the number of pavilions at Kiwanis Park.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
