Kiwanis loves to get the youth involved though Key Club membership at the high school level, especially since their engagement keeps the club going as they continue with Kiwanis as adults. Currently the Conroe Noon Kiwanis Club sponsors the Caney Creek High School Key Club.
High school youth involved in Key Club learn about serving their local community by partnering with their host Kiwanis Club. Students serve, learn about leadership, and develop character through many projects they perform. The impact they make in the community will stay with them as they continue their journey to adulthood.
Recently, the Caney Creek Key Club members assisted at the City of Conroe Parks and Recreation annual event, “Trick or Treat Trail at Carl Barton Jr Park. Key Club members assisted with parking and watching the children play safely on the inflatables.
“We appreciate all the assistance the Key Club provides both the City of Conroe and the Kiwanis Club with our past events. They were eager to be with the kids at Kidzfest, The Kiwanis Day at the Park, KidFish, the Conroe Christmas Parade, and now the Trick or Treat Trail”, said President Javier Pena. “They will be in the community assisting at the Conroe Christmas Celebration on Saturday, December 14.”
Pena is very encouraged by the youth involvement. “The Key Club is fairly new, just recently chartered a couple of years ago. These kids are amazing, though. Their membership is growing by example. Other students see what they are doing and want to be involved in the community. Staying active by regularly volunteering and participating in service projects has helped this young club flourish with over 40 plus members. I look forward to seeing them at future events in Conroe, and sincerely thank them for their service”.
