The Jamestown Kiwanis Club and the Jamestown High School Key Club held its fifth annual Fun Fair for the residents of Emeritus of Lakewood on March 13, 2012. Residents played golf, shuffleboard, Plinko and ring toss in addition to other games for prizes. Emeritus provided refreshments for the evening. Kiwanis Club President Wendy Wilcox stated “Although the Kiwanis International motto is “Serving the Children of the World”, Kiwanis clubs worldwide occasionally diversify their focus to include children of all ages. Past New York District Governor Joe Corace began a February focus on senior citizens as part of his Governor’s Project in 2007. The Kiwanis Club of Jamestown partnered with Emeritus of Lakewood to host a Senior Fun Fair for the residents. It was such a hit that the club has continued the tradition each year.”
Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. New members are always welcome. For more information call Wendy Wilcox at 450-6874.
