Service Projects
Kiwanis One Day
October 28, 2017 | 9:00AM-2:00PM
Gary Arthur Community Center | 2400 97 MD, Cooksville
Each year, Kiwanis clubs around the world join in a day of service. Kiwanis One Day currently is held on the fourth Saturday of October. In 2017, Kiwanis One Day will be observed on October 28.  Kiwanis One Day is a great opportunity to bring together the Kiwanis family of clubs to focus on local community service. It’s an example of our belief that kids need Kiwanis–kids in the community need Kiwanis to provide programs and services no longer available because of school and municipal budget constraints, and kids who want to be in youth clubs need Kiwanis club members as mentors to help them thrive, prosper and grow.

This year, we will all be volunteering for the Halloween One-Mile Fun Run/Walk and Trunk or Treat event at the Gary Arthur Community Center in Cooksville, Maryland. The events run from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. Volunteers are encouraged to wear a costume and to bring a friend!  While we are inviting all of our SLP club members to join us, volunteers do not need to be members of Kiwanis, Circle K, or Key Club to take part in this exciting service opportunity. Duties may include supervising fitness-themed stations along the Halloween One-Mile Fun Run/Walk, handing out prizes, guiding participants through fitness stations, running childrens' games and activities, handing out candy at trick or treat stations, directing traffic flow, crowd management, event set-up/take-down, and other duties as needed. Lunch will be provided by Kiwanis. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign-up here!  If you have any questions regarding Kiwanis One Day, please contact the Andrew Wong (atwong81@gmail.com) or Jennifer Hiscock (hiscockjenn@gmail.com).
