CEO Statement/Executive Director Statement
Killearn Kiwanis has served our community since 1982.  Through the years we have pursued a wide variety of community service programs.  We are proud of the fact that along with the personal and professional relationships that develop among members, we have remained focused on the service we provide to our community.
Our principal fund-raiser is the Annual Charity Golf Classic.  Organized by our club, the tournament is held every spring at the Killearn Country Club and Inn. Historically, the tournament nets in excess of $5,000 each year and is an enjoyable event the golfing community eagerly anticipates.  Because we provide manpower for our projects every dollar donated has a fourfold impact.
While the main focus in Kiwanis is to benefit children, we also serve various other community service needs such as collecting and distributing books for veterans and Timberlane Road cleanup.  Killearn Kiwanis organized and sponsors the Chiles High School Key Club.  The club has had 80 to 100 members every year who carry out community service projects while learning leadership skills.  We have established K-kids Clubs at both Gilchrist and Desoto Train elementary schools which develop fundamental leadership skills while working to improve their schools and communities.  Every year we distribute close to 500 dictionaries to third graders in public and private schools.  We have constructed playground equipment at Gretchen Everhart and FSU elementary schools.  We contributed over $10,000 to the construction of "Miracle Field" for children with physical and learning disabilities.  We help sponsor the Ralph Davis Scholarship House at FSU.  In addition, we have formed a partnership with the Miccosukee Boys and Girls Club.  Members continue to renovate the meeting facility for the Miccosukee Club, provide school supplies, and organize field trips for the boys and girls.
The aKtion Club, sponsored and operated by our club with the assistance of the Leon Advocacy Resource Center, is a service club for developmentally disabled adults.  The only difference between aKtion Club and Kiwanis Club is the assistance lent by Killearn Kiwanis Club with administrative, financial and planning functions.
Our extensive and diverse list of service activities offer something for everyone to volunteer and provide services to our community.
