The Kiwanis Club of Chatham-Kent consists of a group of community volunteers whose primary focus is on children.
While perhaps best known in the community for operating the annual Chatham Kiwanis Music Festival for over 75 years and for the Kiwanis Theatre, we also provide support for youth education and leadership development and a Kiwanis Aktion Club partnership with Community Living. As well we support a number of local charitable organizations and activities.
For the last several years our strategic statement, “Children are our focus. Literacy is our goal”, has guided our activities as we’ve developed partnerships with the Chatham-Kent Public Library and several of our local elementary schools.
We’re delighted to partner with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library as we extend our literacy support by encouraging a love of reading in pre-school children. In order to serve as many families as possible, we are accepting only one child per family for now.
Thanks to the overwhelming interest in this program from our community, we have again reached the limit of number of children that we can handle at this moment. You may still register and your child will be put on a waiting list. Please note that we allow only one child per family to be registered in order to give more families an opportunity to enter this program. Thank you for understanding. Update: Please know that the waiting list is now 6 months.
Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contact list so our emails will not end up in your spam or junk mail folder. We may want to contact you if there is a question about your registration.
