Kiwanis Club of Polk City's Annual Easter Egg Hunt and Pancake Breakfast

The Annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by Polk City Kiwanis was to be held on Saturday, April 4 at the fields of Lakeside Fellowship Church, 1121 W. Bridge Rd., Polk City. for kids 8 and under.

Due to the coronavirus at this time, the Kiwanis Club of Polk City has decided we need to cancel the Easter Egg Hunt for this year!

The Kiwanis Club was also to host our Annual 'FREE WILL DONATION' Pancake Breakfast the same day in the Lakeside Fellowship Church. The 'free will donation' proceeds help sponsor 5th graders at Kiwanis Camp OK in June and sponsor Key Club Conference attendees.

Due to the coronavirus at this time, the Kiwanis Club of Polk City has decided to postpone the Pancake Breakfast to a later date to be determined at a later date. Since the breakfast is an important fundraiser for upcoming community projects and events, we hope to be able to hold it as soon as possible; however, we need to wait until federal and state guidelines allow for such events to be held with the public's safety to be of utmost importance. We hope to see you all later this spring or early summer, if that timeline is at all possible, at the Kiwanis Club of Polk City's Pancake Breakfast!!!

We hope to still hold the breakfast at Lakeside Fellowship, and hope to still have games and crafts in their gym. Luana Savings Bank will be the sponsor of the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast whenever it can be held. We appreciate their great support!

Kiwanis Club of Polk City Update

Three Kiwanis Club members joined Key Club members walking and riding in the North Polk High School Homecoming Parade from West Elementary School to the Polk City Square. The Key Club designed and built their float on one of their Dad's trailer beds. It was a beautiful day, although a little warm, and the parade was a great success!

The Kiwanis Club of Polk City has held a couple of fundraisers: one, our Four Seasons' Festival Food Stand and Barbecue; and two, the RVTV Kiwanis Food Stand. All the profit from all our fundraisers is returned to the community for projects focusing on children and families. Weather has not been cooperative with those two fundraisers. Either it was excessive heat or excessive rain that limited community members purchasing our hamburgers and hot dogs and drinks.

We are looking forward to the community Christmas Tree Lighting event on Tuesday, December 3 when the Kiwanis Club of Polk City will hold our 3rd annual Christmas Silent Auction in the Polk City Community Room. We look forward to lots of community support in purchasing the donations we receive from many community businesses. We are also hoping any blizzard holds off that day and evening!!!

Look for more details to follow in the next couple of months.
