The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard from the Taylorville High School Kiwanis Key Club advisor, along with 2 Key Club members, during their weekly luncheon Tuesday at the club’s new meeting place, the Taylorville Moose Lodge.
Kiwanis Key Club advisor Nate Howard, along with freshmen Key Club members Sophie Robinson and Macie Richards, said that the high school club, which is sponsored by the local Kiwanis Club, has been involved in many community projects this school year, including clean-up at Lake Taylorville, a winter coat drive to provide coats to teachers for needy students in their classes, Trick or Treating for UNICEF, bell ringing for the Salvation Army, and delivering Meals on Wheels, among many others.
Howard told Kiwanis members it's satisfying to be the Key Club advisor.
Macie and Sophie were both members of the Taylorville Kiwanis Junior High Builders Club, which is why they decided to join the T-H-S Kiwanis Key Club.
Advisor Howard told Kiwanis members that the Key Club at Taylorville High School has between 35 and 40 members, and it's his goal for the club to help make them leaders in the community.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club also presented Howard and the Kiwanis Key Club, a check for 500-dollars, to go towards several club members' attendance at the upcoming Key Club Leadership Conference in Springfield next month.
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 their new meeting location, the Taylorville Moose Lodge. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
