COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - The mayor of Columbus honored the Kiwanis Club of Columbus Tuesday with a proclamation to celebrate its first 100 years of service to children in the Chattahoochee Valley.
The organization is dedicated to serving children in the Columbus area and around the world. Kiwanis members said the well being and the education of children is the club’s main focus.
Mayor Skip Henderson said what makes Kiwanis Club’s service special is its consistency.
“We appreciate any help we can get from anybody, but there's a lot of folks that will work in spurts,” said Henderson. “But consistency and continuity over a hundred years working to make this community better, that's just hard to describe how significant that is.”
Kiwanis Club is also working with Piedmont Columbus Regional hospitals this week to give away safety helmets. Additionally, the organization has plans to host a life-jacket giveaway to promote water safety in the spring.
