About us

Here is an excerpt from the  Club's latest newsletter.  For a full newsletter, including pictures,  and past editions, click here.

Dave Fitzgerald, Executive Director of the Yankee Clipper Council, Boy Scouts of America, spoke briefly about the innovations sponsored by the Council.

They are especially proud, as they should be, for having successfully initiated a special Cub Scout pack in Lawrence.

The Council covers the activities of about 2,400 Scouts in the area.

They will run a benefit golf tournament at the Andover Country Club on August 11.

Kiwanis and partners AAA, Lawrence General, Methuen Police and Target, under the expert leadership of Colleen Coco and Ed Hart,  ran a wonderful Bike Rodeo in Methuen on Saturday.

A raffle of bicycles, helmets for each child, and bicycle riding safety tips were the rewards.

A special thanks goes to Mike Bellemore for his generous gift of several bicycles.

Thanks to all sponsors, Colleen, Ed, Clark  and the many Kiwanian and related volunteers who made some children and their parents very happy.

Ron Martin, Kiwanian to be, displays a plaque that he received for winning the Kiwanis run bowling league in 1957.  The plaque was awarded along with a scholarship. 

His secret pal, Mike, holds a copy of the newspaper article.

Especially for Celeste:

There are only hints and guesses,

Hints followed by guesses; and the rest

Is prayer, observance, discipline, thought, and action.
