Our members make the Noon Kiwanis Club what it is today and our spotlight this month is our Vice President, Steve Reeves. Steve has been a member of the Kiwanis Club since 1999. He served as Vice President in 2002 and was President of the Club in 2003.
Some of his greatest moments with Kiwanis were In 2003, when the club received the C.T. Bush Award from the Texas-Oklahoma Kiwanis Foundation for contributing funds to assist young people who deserved the opportunity to pursue worthwhile goals with financial assistance and in 2013, when the Conroe Noon Kiwanis Club received the Walter Zeller Fellowship Award for contributing twelve hundred dollars per member to help eliminate neonatal tetanus.
Steve became a member to give back to the community he lives in by helping children.
“The Kiwanis Kids Day in the Park is one of my favorite events because I am able to be ‘hands on’ helping to create wonderful smiles on the faces of children”.
Another event Steve likes to be a part of is Shattered Lives:
Working in the funeral industry for over 20 years in Conroe, I have had the opportunity through Kiwanis Club to be a part of the Shattered Lives program. This event brings awareness of alcohol and texting behind the wheel and the consequences from that decision. This hits home for me”
The club is involved in so many great programs to embrace our local children and youth. Steve enjoys the collaboration with the First Baptist Church of Conroe for the Stanley and Annette Fleetwood Shoes for Orphan Souls Shoe Drive helping provide shoes and socks to Buckner International of Conroe.
“Kiwanis is a great way to give back and we would love to have service-minded people join us as we continue to serve the children and our community,” encouraged Steve.
