Local Kiwanis group gathers for first time

WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Kiwanis Club had its first official meeting since the election of its officers and board of directors in early January. The Whitley County Kiwanis Club is part of Kiwanis International, a global organization dedicated to serving children and their communities. This Club will work with local schools and churches in order to help promote and support multiple programs in Whitley County. These programs include but are not limited to Key Club, which teaches leadership and service to youth, and the Bring up Grades program, which helps students to plan, set goals, work with others, and celebrate their successes. The Whitley County Kiwanis Club will meet the third Wednesday of each month at Parkview Whitley Hospital. The next meeting will be held at Parkview Whitley Hospital Wednesday, March 19, from noon to 1 p.m. at the Parkview Whitley Hospital Classroom A.
