The Kiwanis Club of St. Johns 707, Michigan, gained 22 hard-working helpers earlier this year. That’s the number of students at St. Johns Middle School
who were inducted into a newly chartered Builders Club the Kiwanis club is sponsoring. And according to Becky Maleski, faculty advisor, the Builders were quickly introduced to selecting and implementing community-service projects at the school and throughout the community.
One of the first projects completed by the two Kiwanis-family club was a pancake breakfast at Applebee’s, raising $2,000 to help pay an outstanding balance owed on the construction of the Veterans’ Memorial in downtown St. Johns. The fundraiser was a huge success for local veterans, as well as Kiwanis and the Builders Club members.
The charter presentation included representatives from the Kiwanis club and the Kiwanis district.
