Kiwanis Club looks for new projects - The Herald Journal


The Kiwanis Club has been an active member of the Preston community for 62 years. Its mission is to “improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children.” states the organization

The club is on the lookout for appropriate service projects. Its annual Rodeo Burger fundraiser is a well-known presence at That Famous Preston Night Rodeo and the Franklin County Fair, and is the major source of funds that the club utilizes throughout the year in local service projects. 

Preston Kiwanis is a major sponsor of the Baby Care Cupboard, which provides diapers and other baby supplies for families in need. The club is also a major sponsor of Preston’s recreation baseball program, providing home-run fencing, and much of the necessary equipment. 

Most recently, the Kiwanis Club was largely responsible for the fundraising and the building of the Kiwanis Blayne Rounds Memorial Splash Pad. 

Kiwanis provides operating budgets and leadership support for the Preston and West Side High School Key Clubs as well as annual scholarships for both schools. In 2018, the club revived the Stand Up/Stand out leadership conference that was well attended and the club is making preparations to present the conference in 2019.

The club is recruiting new members who are at least 18 years of age, and willing to actively participate in service activities. 

Interested persons may call Connie Young at 208-851-0573.
