On Monday, Dec. 30, during the Town of Lewiston’s final board meeting of 2019, Kiwanis Club of Lewiston President Lee Allan presented a $1,500 donation toward the Lewiston Family Ice Rink.
“We are committed to the partnership between our club and the town’s recreation department,” Allan said. “One of our club’s missions is to support family-orientated youth programs within our community.”
The Kiwanis Club of Lewiston also sponsors several local youth organizations with Kiwanis International that have a focus on learning leadership skills through service. Included are The Circle K Club at Niagara University, Key Club at Lewiston-Porter High School, Builders Club and K Kids at Lewiston-Porter Elementary School and K Kids at the Tuscarora School. In addition, the Kiwanis Club supports the Aktion Club, a program for adults with disabilities.
Proceeds for donations are raised though the club’s annual Niagara County Peach Festival, which, like the rink, is situated in Academy Park.
