March 15th marks 98 years that the Kiwanis Club of Lake Bluff & Lake Forest has been serving our communities. As part of a global organization established in 1915, the mission of Kiwanis is to “Serve the Children of the World.” That motto continues to be the backbone of the 23 member club, made up of area men and women.
The Club donates to more than 20 charities in Lake Bluff, Lake Forest and Lake County that serve the needs of children. In addition, Kiwanis selects a major project annually for organizations in the community. As an example, several weeks ago the Club donated $14,000 to provide the Children’s Department at the Lake Bluff Library with needed technology upgrades for media components such as new laptops, iPad’s, headphones, STEAM/STEM kits and pre-loaded tablets.
With a lessening of the impact of COVID-19, the Club is looking forward to being with the community again on the Fourth of July with its 48th Pancake Breakfast. If you are interested in Kiwanis, please visit us at www.KiwanisLBLF.org.
