Just a quick note to wish everyone well and hope everyone is hanging in there and making it through these troubling times.
It is with heavy hearts that our Club has decided to postpone our annual Pancake Breakfast & Silent Auction that was supposed to take place on 5-17. With the current situation with the pandemic it is best to reschedule for a different time. Our aim is to hold this event in the Fall, and will update our website and Facebook page once we have a date nailed down.
Hope everyone is staying well.
On Saturday, March 28 Kiwanis will be at the Roseville Bridging location to help build dressers for families in need. --THIS EVEN HAS BEEN POSTPONED FOR THE TIME BEING.
Bridging, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the greater Twin Cities, provides donated furniture and household goods to families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. Bridging gives hope – and for many – a leap toward financial stability for the first time. With locations in Roseville and Bloomington, Bridging is driven by volunteers and donations of basic home essential items from the community.
Since 1987, Bridging has served nearly 90,000 local Twin Cities households, and reduces landfill space by 10 million pounds each year.
If you are interested in making a donation to help purchase dressers that Kiwanis will assemble, please contact Diana at: 952-888-0746 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more about Bridging, click the blue button below.
Our Kiwanis Club was present at a Thompson Park Activity Center event to recruit new members. We had a great conversation with a few people who wanted to stick around to hear about our club, and were happy to be able to share all the wonderful things we've accomplished as a club so far. If you're interested in learning more about Kiwanis, or would like to join us at a Tuesday lunch meeting, or an evening meeting, please reach out to Jim: 651-230-0084
Thank you to everyone who joined us last night at Noodles & Co for our Kiwanis fundraiser! Noodles & Co was kind enough to allow our group at their location from 4-8PM, and for everyone who ordered their meal at the restaurant, 25% of the proceeds will end up going to our group.
We use these funds for scholarships for local high school seniors who are graduating in the spring. The scholarships will be sent to the college of their choice, to help them get ahead in their college career!
Thank you to everyone who came out to support us! If you're interested in making a donation to Kiwanis, to help us fund our scholarships, please reach out to Jim: 651-230-0084.

Woodbury Club and North Suburban Club joined our West St. Paul Club for a joint Christmas Party! As you can see from the photo above, there were quite a few of us that came together to celebrate the season and reminisce over the year. We enjoyed a lovely meal, a short recap presentation of the year, and a competitive white elephant gift exchange.
Tis the season of giving thanks and acknowledging all the gifts we have in our lives, and the gifts we can bestow unto others. If you are looking for an outlet for your gifts, reach out to us today to look into joining our club. We are always in need of motivated, caring individuals who love giving back.
Our club adopted two families through Neighbors Inc's Holiday Gift Program. A total of five children will now be receiving Christmas gifts this holiday season! If you are interested in learning more about the program, or making a donation to Neighbors Inc, click the blue button below.

Thank you to all the volunteers, and everyone who chipped in to make this event a huge success! Happy Holidays!
