Kiwanians clean up parks in Natchitoches

Kiwanis One Day CLEAN

Each year, Kiwanis clubs around the world join in a day of service. Kiwanis One Day for 2017 was Oct. 28. Kiwanis One Day is a great opportunity to bring together the Kiwanis family of clubs to focus on local community service.

The Kiwanis Club of Natchitoches conducted a service project entitled “Natchitoches 4 in 4”……the collection of trash from four of the city’s municipal parks in four hours. Members started at the Ross Williams Park, then Ben Johnson Basketball Park, then the City Park, and finished up at the Pierson and Mallett Children’s Park. The goal was to complete all four parks in four hours, and they finished with all four in less than 3 hours!

The project was a huge success, with the Kiwanis membership being joined by several additional community organizations uniting together to make a positive impact on the community. Other organizations participating in Kiwanis One Day included: 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.
