Club Membership Information

Kiwanis is focused on Serving the Children of the World and our Community!
A quote from television famed Mr. Rogers in his book The World According to Mr. Rogers - "When I was very young, most of my childhood heroes wore capes, flew through the air, or picked up buildings with one arm. They were spectacular and got a lot of attention. But as I grew, my heroes changed, so that now I can honestly say that anyone who does anything to help a child is a hero to me."  Join Kiwanis today!

Buy Our Delicious Syrup TODAY, Support Children!

Pure Maple Syrup is a perfect gift for friends and family! It's also a novel way to say "Thank You" and share your support of a worthwhile cause! Hurry while supplies last! This year's sap production turned out to be above normal, despite being delayed by the unusually late record-low cold temperatures. With the support of Kiwanian Bob Warner, our boiling process benefited from use of his updated evaporator system at his families' historic Loudon Crest Farm sugar shack on Loudon St. If you drove by the 'sugar shack' at night in March, you would have seen the steam rolling from the boiling sap water and perhaps a few sparks from the super hot firewood. A few folks stopped by when we were collecting sap from our educational buckets at Welsh Hills and Granville Elementary School, and more while we were boiling at the sugar shack. Everyone must experience the steam-filled sweet smell of fresh maple syrup at least once in their lifetime. Before the season ended, students from Welsh Hills School and Granville Elementary visited the sugar shack and witnessed the entire process, sweet steam and all! A few families tapped their own maple trees and collected sap water with us, producing their own pure maple syrup! 100% of our maple syrup proceeds benefit children and our community projects.
