With Builders Club week being celebrated March 19th through March 23rd the Taylorville Kiwanis Club moved to recognize the club and express its appreciation on how the Taylorville Builders Club works with the community and Kiwanis. To show Builders Club members that the clubs efforts do not go unnoticed the Taylorville Kiwanis Club provided pizza and drinks and thanked the Builders Club members.
The Taylorville Builders Club was chartered in April of 2007. Club director Jacqueline Foil says that currently the club has 15 active members who regularly attend meetings. Mrs. Foil also noted that IN 2007 the club decided to focus on one organization to work with consistently during each school year. Over the years the Taylorville Builders Club has had focus projects that include being active with fundraising for the Animal Control Animal Shelter, collecting needs for the Taylorville Senior Citizens Center, assisting with the Mobil Food Pantry held at the Taylorville Junior High School and collecting items for Big Brother, Big Sister.
The Taylorville Builders Club has also been involved in events sponsored by the Taylorville Kiwanis Club including assisting with the annual Pancake and Sausage Breakfast.
Calling Taylorville Junior High School home, this Builders Club stays active supporting the community in many ways. Members participate in Trick or Treat for UNICEF, maintain the TJHS courtyard, clean computers and desks once each year at the school as well as work concessions for contests and festivals.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club honored officers of the Builders Club with presentation of certificates in recognition of their commitment to the club. Representatives of the Taylorville Kiwanis Club extended their appreciation for all that the Builders Club does for the community.
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.
