BACK TO SCHOOL PROJECT
August 9, 2016
Every year for more than 5 decades, the KCOS has taken needy children shopping for Christmas clothes. This year we have added a party for giving BACK TO SCHOOL CLOTHES AND SUPPLIES TO 46 NEEDY CHILDREN. The clothing and supplies will be presented to the children at a Back To School hot dog picnic party to be held for them and their families at Kiwanis Park on August 9th.
As part of the funding for the project the KCOS is holding a raffle for a full day of ocean fishing on a 58' professionally staffed charter fishing boat. The usual value of this charter is $3,200.00. Suggested donation amounts for raffle tickets are $25 for 1 ticket or $40 for 2 tickets.

THANK YOU FOR BUILDING THE PLAYGROUND!!!!
The community build of the newest phase of the Kiwanis Park at Woodlawn was completed over the Memorial Day weekend as all of the play equipment was assembled and a grand opening was held on July 16, 2015.
This playground is usable by all children but the equipment and ramps allows children with disabilities to have access to slides, swings, and other exciting sensory equipment.
Hundreds of photos of the community build may be seen under the menu item on the left side of this page shown as "Photos" and the sub-menu item "Photos-Picasa."
The Kiwanis Club of Stuart spent 3 years raising funds and planning for the construction of the playground. The $200,000 in project costs are shared equally by the KCOS and the City of Stuart.
If you were there for the build, contributed materials, contributed food, contributed advertising, or in any other way helped make the playground a success, the KCOS and the City of Stuart, on behalf of the children who will use the playground over the coming decades, say THANKS TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!!
