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.
