Kiwanis Key Club advisor Bob Clancy, Alex Krystynak, Kiwanis President-elect George Christ 

The Westlake Kiwanis awarded the first ever William E. Sifritt Community Service Award to Alex Krystynak on Monday, May 18, at Westlake City Hall. Westlake Kiwanis President-elect George Christ presented the award to Alex who is a senior at Westlake High School. Mayor Dennis Clough also presented Alex with a proclamation declaring May 18, 2015, "Alex Krystynak Day" in the city of Westlake. 

Alex is the vice president of Key Club, Scout Weblo Pack 98 assistant leader, a member of the Cleveland Police Outreach Group, photographer for the Westlake High School newspaper, a member of the Westshore Emergency Response Team (CERT), Key Leader and a lifeguard at the Westlake Recreation Center. 

Alex's call to service to his community and his peers, coupled with his enthusiastic energy to be of service to others, earned him the recognition of being the recipient of the Kiwanis Community Service Award named for William E. Sifritt, longtime Westlake Kiwanian. Alex's name is the first on the plaque which will hang in the rotunda of Westlake City Hall.

If you would like to join an active volunteer group – the Westlake Kiwanis – and giving back to your community on many worthwhile projects, please contact George Christ at 440-871-3980 or gchrist44140@yahoo.com.
