Kiwanis One Day

45

Kiwanis One Day is an opportunity to bring together the Kiwanis family of clubs to focus on local community service. Each year, Kiwanis clubs around the world join in a day of service. Kiwanis One Day for 2017 was Saturday, Oct. 28. The Kiwanis Club of Natchitoches conducted a service project entitled “Natchitoches 4 in 4” where they collected trash from four of the city’s municipal parks in four hours. They started at the Ross Williams Park, then Ben Johnson Basketball Park, then the City Park and finished at the Pierson and Mallett Children’s Park. Their goal was to complete all four parks in four hours, but they finished with all four in less than three hours. Other organizations participating in the project were Alliance Compressors, BOM, The African American Caucus of Northwestern University, The City of Natchitoches and Natchitoches Troops of Boy Scouts of America #60 and Cub Scouts of America #60.
