Recent Donations of Time and Money Aid Local Organizations

Kiwanians never rest. Over the past two months we have dedicated our time and energy to aid three different local organizations in Fond du Lac. Please don’t forget about supporting our upcoming fundraiser at Walleye Weekend.

On April 14th several Kiwanians donated portions of their Saturdays to run a brat fry at PDQ in North Fond du Lac. The efforts of these men and women generated $1,100 for the organization seeking to save the Taylor Park Pool in Fond du Lac.

Kiwanis One Day Service Project was last Saturday, May 12th at the ARC building on North Park Avenue. The fun began with breakfast at the ARC and after a few logistical glitches were corrected the painting began in earnest. The entire building received two coats of paint and according to Executive Director, David Boelter, it looks absolutely beautiful. According to an email from David, the three FDL Kiwanis Clubs saved the ARC approximately $16,000 in painting costs while applying 110 gallons of paint to the ARC building.

Bowling with unmatched Big Brothers/Big Sisters on Sunday, May 20th, at Karl Ray Lanes also recently completed. Thanks go out to members John Cooper, Jackie King, Gary Miller, Charlene Pettit, and Chris Serres and her husband, Jim. These along with three Horace Mann Key Clubbers and seven members of the Winter Guard were in attendance helping with this outing. There were about 25 unmatched “Littles” that had a great time bowling and eating pizza. Thanks to the Youth Services Committee for sponsoring this event.
