On a cold, windy October 30th evening, Prairie High Schoool (PHS) Key Club partnered with Best Buddies to host Trunk or Treat. We had an incredible turnout of goblins, superheroes, princesses, storm troopers and more receive treats from our Key Club Members. Thank you to those who donated candy to help us host this event and to United Way of East Central Iowa for the donation of 150 books to distribute. PHS Key Club raised $150 for UNICEF at this event.
And just this morning, we were able to donate 22 tie fleece blankets to the Catherine McAuley Center for the residents of their transitional housing unit. This is the fourth year that Key Club has made and donated blankets and with the batch today, we have donated 140 blankets in the last four years. That will keep a lot of people nice and warm during our Iowa winter! Thank you to everyone who donated fleece for this project. Kristin Ossenkop, Volunteer Coordinator for the Catherine McAuley Center, was our speaker at this meeting and explained the purpose and impact the Catherine McAuley Center has in our community. The labor to make the blankets was provided by Key Club members and the fleece was donated by CCS Staff members, Key Club Members and generous community friends, Thanks to all who donated to this project! You help Key Club students do great things!
Prairie High School Key Club is 99 members strong this year and have donated a total of 1021 hours at school and community events so far this school year!

Kiwanis gather at Old MacDonald’s Farm at Bever Park on Sunday May 21st to celebrate the installation of new signs at the park. Laurie Worden is seen with the microphone as she makes a presentation before the butterfly release. Ryan Sundermann is on the right holding the box of butterflies.
Renee Grummer-Miller is welcomed to the Kiwanis Club as a new member.
Checking people’s identification to qualify for purchase of alcoholic beverages at Kernels games is a project we do each August, and this year, part of September. The ball club pays Kiwanis, and the project is our second most profitable fundraiser each year. We put a wristband on qualified folks to speed up things at the concession stands.
