The Pittsboro Kiwanis Club will celebrate their 60th anniversary of Community Service to Children by hosting a Children's Day at the Kiwanis Park and surrounding Kiwanis Hut property. The event will be on June 12th from 11:30- 3pm. Jammin Baby will provide interactive musical entertainment most of the afternoon. Various civic and public departments will be there as will Kiwanis members grilling free hot dogs for the kids and $1 dogs for adults. More info to come as the event takes shape.
For those of you who don't know, the Kiwanis Club worked with area parents in 200o to found the Kiwanis Park. The park opened in 2004 and has seen substantial upgrades throughout the years. The Kiwanis lease the parkland to the Town for virtually no cost and support area children in a myriad of other ways. Just from speaking informally with members I've learned that they provide Christmas gifts to children who otherwise would likely receive nothing. They also support the CORA food pantry and other local charities. This celebration is all about the kids, but should you attend, please take time to thank Kiwanis members for their positive civic engagement and their commitment to the betterment of Pittsboro. They rightly focus on doing good works rather than self promotion, so most people don't realize the good they do for our community.
