Meet our 2015-2016 President
Message from our President
Welcome to the official web page of The Kiwanis Club of Marco Island. It is my honor to serve as Club President for the 2015-2016 year. The Kiwanis Club of Marco Island is a service organization chartered in 1993 for the sole purpose of improving the lives of children in our community and around the world. Today our membership is 70+ strong and proud to say growing annually.
I've spent over five years working with one of the mosts active clubs in Southwest Florida. My fellow Kiwanians are a diverse and energetic group. With Marco Island being a snowbird destination, the club has the opportunity to work and socialize with Kiwanians from across the country, and at times, the world.
The dedicated group of volunteers work hard to raise funds to serve our children. Over the years the club has developed a number of fundraisers to support their mission including: Family Fun 5K Walk/Run, Marco Island's Car Show and Marco Island's Seafood Festival. Other fund raisers will be announced during the year.
Funds are used to support our children in the form of Terrific Kids, Reading is Fundamental, Key Clubs, K-Kids, and with Kiwanis International - a goal to eliminate maternal/neonatal tetanus in the world. We also provide high school scholarships and assistance to local school programs, as needed. One of our most memorable program is our Christmas Toys for Kids; we believe every child should feel the magic of Christmas.
This year The Kiwanis Club of Marco Island will continue its efforts in participating in a number of community service projects. Look for our volunteers in cleaning up a stretch of beach or Island roadway, assisting our local park's department in mulching a playground, or assisting at a homeless shelter.
I am looking forward to working with you this year. Please join me in serving the children of our community.
Come join us Thursday mornings, at 7:30 am, for breakfast at Stonewalls, 551 S. Collier Blvd., Marco Island, FL 34145, September through June. During the summer time check the calendar for regular social events and summer time BBQ meetings. Please visit us when you can. For further membership information call me at 239-394-2299 or email TClune@gmail.com. We hope to see you soon.
