During 2008, the Clover Park Kiwanis Club donated over $15,000 to community service agencies and scholarships. Donations were made to Caring For Kids, Community in Schools, The Boys and Girls Club of Lakewood, the FISH food bank, the Puget Sound USO, and several groups providing Christmas gifts for children both in Lakewood and Ft. Lewis. Scholarships were also presented to students from Clover Park and Lakes High Schools. At elementary, middle, and high schools, Kiwanis recognition awards are presented for leadership, music, arts, and athletics. The main source of the funding for these projects is derived from operating the concession stand at Harry Lang Stadium during the fall for football and girls‚Äô soccer and during the spring for track and boys‚Äô soccer.
2008 officers include Jerry Dunlap, president, Chris Guppy, president-elect, Steve Schroeder, vice-president, Jeff Axtell, secretary, and Roger Laybourn, treasurer. Serving on the Board of Directors are: Mike Anderson, Rosemarie Lewis, John Zimmermann, Ed Dennery, Wayne Melton, and Ria Johnson, and Valinda Andrea.
