"Kiwanis Is All About Helping Children"
The Redmond Kiwanis Club is composed of men and women who, at the local level, take part in a variety of youth-focused service projects for the community and fund raising activities to support these projects.
To raise funds to support their youth projects, Redmond Kiwanis are preparing and selling food and ice-cream for the "Rockn' On The River" (video) summer concert series. The concerts are held on the Outdoor Plaza of the Senior Center. Remaining concerts are Thursday evenings, 6 - 8:30pm on July 13, 20th, 27th and August 10th. My wife and I have been to several concerts in the past. It's a gem. The music is lively and inviting to children and families wanting to dance.
Many of their service projects involve serving food for the vulnerable. On July 17th they will prepare and serve food for the homeless youth and young adults at the Landing, a
shelter run by Friends of Youth.
Redmond Kiwanis hold their meetings at the Family Pancake House on Redmond Way every Friday at 7am. Often they will host a guest speaker who talks about child-related organizations. On Friday, July 14th the Outreach Coordinator for "ARC" will present. ARC works with advocacy groups to educate people about the legislative process for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. On July 21st a speaker from "Havens Community Connections" will describe how they help women in domestic abuse situations.
Their website is robust and updated every month with information about the club, their activities, speakers, and service projects. Redmond Kiwanis embraces our community and welcomes new members. If you'd like to be a guest at one of our meetings please call Pat Vache' at 425-883-2314.
