Westlake Kiwanis Club serves the community

Kiwanians John Sweany and Ken Frisch help with fall cleanup at the Hospice of the Western Reserve's Ames Family Hospice House in Westlake on Nov. 9.

The Westlake Kiwanis Club is very active in serving the community. On Nov. 9, ten members of the club spent the morning at the newly opened Ames Family Hospice House off Crocker Road doing a clean up project. On Saturday, Nov. 10, Kiwanis, in cooperation with high school Key Club members, raked yards of seniors and other residents who requested help getting ready for winter. 

As the holidays approach the club will be involved in helping pass out food baskets at the Westlake Community Center. These are just a few of the activities the club is involved in during the year. Recently the club helped the Westlake Fire Department by purchasing equipment for each rescue squad to adapt the stretchers for small children and infants.

These projects and others are only possible because of the dedicated members who belong to the Westlake Kiwanis Club. Membership is open to any adults who live or work in Westlake. The club meets on Tuesday nights for dinner and a program at SB81 Restaurant at 6:30 p.m. The Westlake club also sponsors the Key Club at Westlake High, Builders Club at Lee Burneson Middle School and an Aktion Club in the western suburbs.

If you are interested in community service projects, informative programs and meeting new friends, consider becoming a member. For questions or information please contact me at 216-832-1640.
