Our club has been making syrup as a fundraiser for over 50 years. Join our Club and Help Us Make Syrup!
Granville Kiwanis Maple Syrup was featured in the September 2014 Kiwanis International Magazine.
Don Lewis, Chair, gave an interview about the club's annual project and fundraiser. Bob Warner, maple syrup shack owner and operator and current member and past President of our club, was photographed educating the local school tours during a field trip to learn to tap trees and boil sap into syrup, which the club hosts each spring during its February-March collection and boiling. The syrup is sold throughout the year by club members as a fundraiser for the club's projects, and shared at the annual Pancake Day Fundraiser in the Spring, but don't wait until Spring, this fundraiser is completely weather dependent. So buy your stock of syrup now, while supplies last! Contact Don Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or see our website.
