On Saturday, April 6, from 10-noon the Placerville Kiwanis Club, its Key Clubs, Builders’ Club and Aktion Club will be bringing the spirit of service alive in Placerville by helping maintain the park and inviting neighbors of Duffey Park to a barbecue.
These activities are being held as part of Kiwanis One Day, a global day of service that unites the entire Kiwanis family, including Kiwanis, Aktion Club, Circle K, Key Club, Builder’s Club and K-Kids. On this day, more than Kiwanis volunteers in Placerville are expected to join nearly 600,000 volunteers around the world in devoting a few hours to hands-on service. Kiwanis International expects that Kiwanis One Day will contribute nearly 1 million service hours around the world in just one day.
“We are proud to join our fellow Kiwanis family members around the globe to participate in Kiwanis One Day,” said Lori Warden, president of Placerville Kiwanis. “The energy, commitment and camaraderie surrounding this single day make the experience of hands-on service even more gratifying for our members as they make an immediate, measurable impact on the Placerville community.”
