Taylorville Kiwanis Club Meets, Finalizes Plans for April 30th Pancake and Sausage Day Fund Raiser

The Taylorville Kiwanis Club reviewed their ongoing efforts for children and youth in the Taylorville community, during their weekly meeting at the Taylorville Moose Lodge on Tuesday.

In committee reports, Kiwanis Builders and Key Club liason Will Perkins reported the high school Kiwanis Key Club would be holding a 5K Color Run at Manners Park on Saturday, April 16th, as a fun way to promote the Key Club and all they do for the community.  Kiwanis Park co-chairs Larry Kemner and Duane Stock reported that a couple of work days will be scheduled to get the park into shape for the 2022 season, and the long-await Kiwanis Park Pavilion floor replacement project will be underway this spring.  Kiwanis Interclub chair Blain Cornwell announced that club members will again be raising money for local projects, by manning gates at the Illinois State Fair on 2 dates in August.

And, the Kiwanis Club finalized their plans for one of their biggest fund-raisers of the year, the Annual Pancake and Sausage Day being held Saturday, April 30th, from 6:30 to 11am at the Taylorville Moose Lodge.  Tickets are 7-dollars each with all proceeds going to local Kiwanis projects for children and youth, including Kiwanis Park, Coats for Kids, YMCA and high school scholarships.  Tickets are available from any Kiwanis member.  Drive-thru to-go service will be available again this year.

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.
