The Taylorville Kiwanis Club held their monthly business meeting at their weekly luncheon Tuesday at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.
The biggest announcement was that after several months of work, the Kiwanis Club board voted to move the club’s weekly meetings to the Taylorville Moose Lodge effective October First. After many years of hosting the meetings, Taylorville Memorial Hospital notified the Kiwanis Club that they would have to find a new home for the meetings by January 2020, as the present hospital building will be torn down next year as part of the hospital’s 60-million dollar building project.
The Kiwanis board also re-scheduled the annual Kiwanis Picnic at Kiwanis Park to Tuesday, June 18th at 5pm, due to inclement weather on May 21st.
The Kiwanis Club Park Committee announced that clean-up work and refurbishing of a park bench, had taken place with Kiwanis Park committee chair Jerry Woodard, along with Kiwanis members Will Perkins, Larry Kemner, and Martin Vota, involved.
Blain Lacy was inducted as the newest member of the Taylorville Kiwanis Club, during Tuesday’s meeting. He is an investment representative with Edward Jones, and was sponsored by Kiwanis member Brad Davis.
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.
