Marysville Kiwanis Club adds monthly night meeting to help attract new members

MARYSVILLE — In their service to help children in the community and beyond, Marysville Kiwanis Club members for decades have conducted their weekly meetings at the crack of dawn over breakfast.

But not everyone is an early riser, so take heart, early commuters with a passion for community service, and others too busy to make a morning meeting, because Marysville Kiwanis is adding a night meeting once a month that may get your attention.

Kiwanis currently meets at 7 a.m. every Tuesday in the Village Restaurant, located at 220 Ash Ave. The new evening meeting will be at 7 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday each month at the Village starting on Nov. 22.

The Kiwanis Club is looking for a few good men and women, 18 years of age and older, who want to become more involved in volunteerism and community service.

"Kiwanis has done so much good for this community and its youth over the years, and its hands-on approach to helping is one of things that appeals to new members," Kiwanis President Walter McKinney said. "It's everyday people you know performing extraordinary work."

Since its founding in 1956, the Marysville Kiwanis Club has provided charitable service to the city of Marysville, focusing on promoting family values and supporting the community and youth services.
