Over 30 Kiwanis members and their families, enjoyed an evening of food and fellowship Tuesday night, at the annual Taylorville Kiwanis Club Cookout at Kiwanis Park Pavilion.
The event took the place of the club’s noon meeting. Club members got to visit with family members of other Kiwanis members, enjoy delicious food and desert, and the view of Lake Taylorville from the Kiwanis Park Pavilion.
Club president-elect Sarah Van Huss, who presided over Tuesday night's meeting, told Regional Radio News it was an enjoyable night.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club has raised thousands of dollars to build and maintain Kiwanis Park, since the park’s founding in 1995. The club raised the money to build the main pavilion, the playground, restrooms, a boat dock, and is currently working to build a second smaller pavilion.
Van Huss said Tuesday night's cookout was a way to enjoy the pavilion the club worked so hard to build.
Kiwanis Park is part of the club’s focus on children and youth in the Taylorville community. Weekly meetings are held on Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.
