The Taylorville Kiwanis Club held its monthly business meeting to review Kiwanis efforts for children and youth in the Taylorville community, at the club's weekly luncheon on Tuesday at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.
The local Kiwanis Club will soon have a 2nd pavilion in Kiwanis Park. A new metal roof will be installed above one of the new concrete pads, so that the park will now have a smaller pavilion for gatherings as well as the large pavilion. A second small pavilion is in the works, with the concrete already poured.
Some 17 Taylorville High School seniors applied for college scholarships provided by the local Kiwanis Club. 3 500-dollar scholarships will be announced in the coming days.
Kiwanis members were reminded of next Tuesday's annual Kiwanis Prayer Luncheon, where the Outstanding Spiritual Leader in the community will be recognized. Kiwanis members were also invited to the annual Kiwanis Park cookout at 5pm May 16th in lieu of the weekly noon meeting.
The annual election of Kiwanis officers for the local club, is set for the May 23rd regular meeting.
Kiwanis Peanut Days were also announced, with September 22nd and 23rd as the dates. Kiwanis members will be wearing bright orange vests at locations all over Taylorville, asking residents to donate to help the local club fund projects for children and youth. In exchange for their donation, the donor receives a small package of peanuts.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving 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.
