The Taylorville Kiwanis Club held their monthly business session to continue their work helping children and youth in the Taylorville community, during their weekly meeting Tuesday at the Taylorville Moose Lodge.
Kiwanis treasurer Blain Cornwell told the club the late April Pancake and Sausage Breakfast netted the club some 2-thousand dollars for local club projects.
The club set Tuesday, June 29th at 5:30 in the afternoon, for their annual Kiwanis Club cook-out at the Kiwanis Park Pavilion. It’s an opportunity for club members to invite spouses, significant others, and guests for an evening of food and fellowship.
The Kiwanis Club learned that the Kiwanis board is launching a new initiative to honor those making a difference in the Taylorville community. Each month, Kiwanis members will nominate who they think should be a “Community Hero”. Selection will be by the Kiwanis board and that person honored with an invitation to a weekly meeting where they’ll be presented a certificate for their service to the Taylorville community.
Kiwanis member Mellisa McMillan is heading up this year’s WRAN Kiwanis Radiothon, where local businesses sponsor a day of Kiwanis members broadcasting on WRAN groovy 97.3. Members promote those sponsors by reading their ads live all day. WRAN again is giving half the total collected, to the Kiwanis Club.
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 Moose Lodge. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
