Finally, together! On June 16th at Butterfly Park, George Vrabel led our first meeting since we shut down in the spring. While things aren’t back to “normal” quite yet, our mission is unchanging. Children in our community are in need and we will continue to help them. The safety and health of our members is important and we plan to take necessary precautions moving forward.
Hurray, school is out! …Now what? Kids in Northwest Indiana have a little extra time on their hands and a well-deserved break. Beyond video games, camping trips, and summer reading – what can kids do this summer? Why not give back to the community? Your children can discover the joy of giving while developing their education and physical health. ?Here is a list of volunteer activities for children. These ideas can easily be altered depending on age and ability. Your children get much more than they give when they learn how to make a difference!
In the wake of the coronavirus, COVID-19, our Valparaiso community needs us more than ever. Although, how can you help your community while keeping your distance?
At Valpo Sunrise Kiwanis, we are people-centered. We enjoy each other’s company during weekly meetings and appreciate working side-by-side on all of our projects. Sadly, COVID-19 is affecting our ability to safely be together. For that reason, we have postponed our meetings at Viking Chili Bowl until further notice. However, we are pressing on towards the future! There are still children in need and we will continue to help. Also, there are still plenty of opportunities for members of the community to support our mission.
During the holidays, we remember those without the warmth of a home, shiny gifts around a tree, and delicious family meals. Sure, it is easy to remember to give our hearts to the needy during holidays. However, children in our community are in need year-round.
Valparaiso is fortunate to have two Kiwanis clubs! The Valparaiso Sunrise Kiwanis meets in the morning and the Valparaiso Noon Kiwanis meets during the afternoon. They are two distinct clubs within the larger Kiwanis International organization.
