TAYLORVILLE—The Taylorville Kiwanis Club held their monthly business gathering to review their efforts for children and youth in the Taylorville community, during their weekly meeting Tuesday at the Taylorville Moose Lodge.
Kiwanis members learned that the Taylorville High School Key Club will be holding a Color Run April 16th with the proceeds going to the Kiwanis Park Pavilion floor replacement project.
The Kiwanis Club got a revised quote on that concrete floor replacement, with the
goal of raising the $14,000 needed and getting the project done this year.
Kiwanis Park Committee co-chair Larry Kemner reported that the Taylorville Lake Department has agreed to take down a tree in the Kiwanis Park playground area that’s at risk of falling. Kemner added the club will hold a major clean-up day at the Park this spring.
And, the Kiwanis Club set the date for its annual Pancake and Sausage Day as Saturday, April 30th at the Taylorville Moose Lodge. Proceeds
will benefit Kiwanis Club projects in the community for children and youth, including Kiwanis Park, Coats for Kids, YMCA and high school scholarships, as well as grants to other non-profits that help children in the county.
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.
