The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard about upcomiong fund-raising efforts, and plans for further work at Kiwanis Park on Lake Taylorville, during their weekly meeting Tuesday at the Taylorville Moose Lodge.
The club is busy working towards its April 24th Pancake and Sausage Breakfast at the Taylorville Moose Lodge from 6:30 til eleven in the morning. Tickets are 7-dollars for adults and 4-dollars for children 12 and under. Proceeds benefit local Kiwanis projects for children and youth.
One of those ongoing projects discussed during their Tuesday meeting, was further work on the main pavilion at Kiwanis Park, as well as building a second smaller pavilion. Kiwanis members are working on funding sources to replace the 25-year-old concrete in the main pavilion, as well as a timetable for building the second smaller pavilion.
Kiwanis Spiritual Values chair Dick Wamsley announced the club's annual Prayer Luncheon has been set for May 25th.
And, the club announced it will again hold drive-thru donation days to benefit the Taylorville Food Pantry, on Saturdays in May, July, September, and November, at the Miller Media Group parking lot. More details will be forthcoming. The Kiwanis Club's efforts in collecting food and monetary donations, were the largest donations the Food Pantry received last year, thanks to the generosity of the Taylorville community.
