Kiwanis to host first pool party

| August 6, 2018

COSHOCTON – The Kiwanis organization has a mission to serve families and children in their communities. The Coshocton Kiwanis is excited to announce that they will have a kids’ pool day at Lake Park on Saturday, Aug. 11 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. as another way to serve families and bring children and parents closer together.

“The goal is to give families another healthy outlet to spend time together,” said co-president of Coshocton Kiwanis, Lyn Mizer. “It’s just our way of trying to serve local Coshocton families.”

Cost to attend the pool day is $1 per person. The pool day was funded through a foundation established years ago by local Kiwanians Clarence Miller and Jerome Stenner. This money is being held at the Coshocton Foundation and is also used to give out scholarships and grants.

Coshocton Kiwanis is active in the community helping families and children in a variety of ways. They recently had their quarterly produce giveaway at the fairgrounds. The next one will be Aug. 30 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

“I like that giveaway because the food given to us through the Mid-Ohio Food Bank is fresh produce such as melons and fresh vegetables,” said Mizer. “I love promoting healthy eating.”

Kiwanis also sponsors the Special Olympics held at Kids America in March and the Junior Achievement by donating their time to teach about financial literacy. The club also supports Dollars for Scholars. They also have their biggest fundraiser each year with the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast at the Coshocton Elks in November.

“A lot of people make the pancake breakfast a yearly outing,” said Mizer.

Coshocton Kiwanis meets at the Elks every Wednesday at noon.

“We welcome any new members who feel that children are a priority,” said Mizer.
