We are proud to work so closely with Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation to get these guides into the hands of our clubs!
This is just 1 of the many guides we offer.
Are you interested in hearing about the others?
An Edinboro Kiwanis member delivered roses to an elderly lady who promptly burst into tears. She'd lost her sister just two weeks ago, and had no idea that her granddaughter had ordered the roses for her. Can't think of anyone who deserved them more!
I shared the beautiful roses with a neighbor who is preparing for knee surgery next week.
Easton Kiwanis completed the annual Rose Sale. Its an annual Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation statewide and yesterday we received, assembled and delivered 230 dozen. We had 17 club members and a potential new member assembling for 2 ¾ hours. And then the delivery began. Thank you all to our "Rose Sale Supporters" and to our assembly-line crew.
We are pleased to announce our 2021 Essay Contest. The theme this year is "Recovery, Reflection, and Anticipation". The prompt: "How has the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way you value your family, friends, or just life in general? What are you looking forward to the most as we move toward recovery? How can Kiwanis help the kids in our community recover quickly and thrive?"

Artistic creations are encouraged for the younger ages or in addition to any essay submission.

Prizes will be awarded according to age group and one $100 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior.

Funding in partnership with a grant from the Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation.

For more information and instructions on how to submit the essay, please visit: www.kiwanisofbenv.org/essay-contest.
Our 1st Annual Essay Contest has concluded and we would like to thank all those who participated! This year's theme of Covid19 was a difficult one, but you all delivered amazing essays. We wanted to know how you and your families were affected by Covid19 and your fears of the future so that you could help us to help you and the children of our Community.

The winners are: Hannah Westerbaan, Kyle Everett, Emily Everett, Gavin Morris, and Ewan Morris. CONGRATULATIONS!!! 🏆

Each winner will receive a $25 gift card and some new books for their home libraries.

Unfortunately we did not have an entry from a graduating senior, so we will add that to the scholarship fund for next year's essay contest.

Funding for this contest was provided by a grant from the Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation.

Watch our page and website for details on our 2nd Annual Essay Contest in the spring of 2021!
On behalf of the Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation, I'd like to share this year's Circle K scholarship information. Head on over to https://pkfonline.org/our-impact/scholarships/ to read more about each of our four scholarships:

1. Kiwanian Dependent Child Scholarship
2. Key Club Scholarships
3. Circle K Scholarship
4. Don and Myrt Neiman Endowed Scholarship

Applications with all supporting documents must be submitted by April 13, 2020
Jeff Rose from Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation presenting a Century Award honoring Joanne's recently deceased husband, James "Jim" Cappellano.
At our January 29, 2020 meeting we celebrated 33 years of membership for a special Easton Kiwanian: JOANNE CAPPELLANO. It was a big surprise for her as we celebrated not only her 33 years in Kiwanis but some history of her life that most members were not aware of. As an Easton Kiwanian she was not only president for 3 different years, on the board with sage advice for many years, treasurer of our foundation but maybe her most important position for over 15 years as chief-cook-and-bottle-washer of our annual Super Raffle, the primary fundraiser of Easton Kiwanis. She received flowers from her brother & sister-in-law (Kiwanis members), a cake from Dean Young of the Boys & Girls Club of Easton, a special Lovepop Cards THANK-YOU card, dinner at The Walpack Inn and a special glass photo-engraved "trophy." Jeff Rose from the Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation also presented Joanne a framed Century Award certificate honoring her recently deceased husband James “Jim” Cappellano who always encouraged her participation in Easton Kiwanis. Thank you Joanne for your continued service to the children of the world through Kiwanis Club of Easton, PA.
Wow! Thank you Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation Special thanks to Michael Haven!
I really appreciate you inviting me to perform at your annual conference!
Thank you very much to the Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation for their grant of $2,250 toward the Kids United Community Playground project presented today to the Club's playground committee by Foundation Board Member and Williamsport Kiwanian Suzette Meyer. Pictured are Dawn Astin , Suzette, Gerry Fausnaught , and Wayne Fausnaught.
We are very proud of our work in the area of literacy and early learning. We are also very appreciative of the grants that are available from the Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation. Stay tuned for even more exciting developments in this area as we continue to identify ways to better serve our youth.
