The Kiwanis Club of Sun City Georgetown is a service organization comprised of caring men and women from all walks of life. Our objective is to bring aid to children in need. Most of our efforts benefit children in Williamson County. A portion of the funds raised go to help meet Kiwanis International objectives which focus on the special needs of young children of all ages. We serve by sponsoring fund raising activities and performing community service activities.
Our Club is governed by a Board of Directors which includes six officers and six directors. Chartered in 1997, our Sun City Club is 140+ members strong; the second largest club in all of the Texas-Oklahoma District. We have sponsored the Sun City Holiday Home Tour since 2001. Another major fund raising activity is our Club members working with the Community Association in the bi-annual Sun City Garage Sale. To date, our Club has contributed more than $250,000.00 to various organizations in our community.
We award $2,000 scholarships to as many as seven seniors in the Georgetown, Jarrell and Richarte high schools. Richarte is the alternative high school in Georgetown. In 2005 we began our Literacy Initiative, where we provide free books to the children in Title I schools from pre-kindergarten through the second grade, and to Head Start children. Club members deliver the books and read to the classes. We provide financial support to other local organizations, including the Georgetown Public Library Children's Program, the Palace Theatre Children's Scholarship, and others.
We meet at the Sun City Social Center on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Please join us for fun, fellowship, and the joy of serving others! For membership information send an email to the Membership Chairman [email protected].
