Kiwanis invites community to take Aktion

May 11, 2010

By Staff

The Kiwanis Club of Issaquah has organized a community meeting to talk about Aktion Clubs, service leadership programs of local Kiwanis Clubs.

Aktion Clubs provide adults living with disabilities the opportunity to develop leadership and initiative, serve their community, be integrated into society, and demonstrate the dignity and value of citizens living with disabilities.

The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. May 17 at the Clark Elementary School Library, 500 Second Ave. S.E. The club seeks input from advocates, family members, educators, service providers and friends of people with disabilities as it plans for the launch of the new club.

Aktion Club members are Kiwanians and benefit by actively participating in community life — contributing to the community, improving self-esteem, achieving personal goals, and developing abilities, leadership skills and social awareness.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. The Kiwanis Club of Issaquah serves the community by donating more than $75,000 each year to needy organizations, and through thousands of hours of community service performed by the club’s volunteer members.
