Marathon Group
May 21, 2017 - Today was the 11th Annual Colfax Marathon run on the streets of Denver. The Kiwanis Club of Columbine has volunteered to man a water station on West Colfax since the inception of the Marathon. A special thanks to the members of the Kiwanis Club of Green Mountain for helping.
AirLife
May 13,2017 - Today the Kiwanis Club of Columbine had 8 volunteers help with the Friends of AirLife 20th Annual Memorial 10K/5K Run Walk. Thanks to Bill, Russ, Dean, Cindy, Sally, Sandy, Karen. and Rod for getting up REAL early to help.
Rosie1
May 10,2017 - Today's guest speaker was Historical Character Presenter Gail M. Beaton. She spoke to us in character as Gail Murphy: Colorado's "Rosie the Riveter". In the early 1940's the U.S. Government built an ordnance plant on the SW intersection of U.S. 6 and Kipling and employed a large number of women to support the war effort. Rosie told us about the manufacture of ammunition that she was involved with. She also talked about how mail was exchanged with service members overseas, and how rationing stamps worked. At end of the war, the ordnance plant was closed and the area and buildings became what we now know today as the Denver Federal Center.
Action Center
May 6, 2017 - Today the Kiwanis Club of Columbine spent the morning volunteering at The Action Center in Lakewood. This organization, which provides homeless shelter, food rescue, pathways to self-sufficiency and seasonal distributions, was able to serve 25,000 needy residents last year. A critical component of their ability to serve this number of people is the volunteer support that they receive from the local community, including the Columbine Kiwanis. Ten of us (Jim, Brian, Bill, Susan, Ken, Lee, Janet, Tom F, Mel and his grandson Tanner) volunteered for the morning sorting food and setting up the Food Bank for Monday's opening. In addition to our work, we produced two videos, one of them an interview with Brian and Tanner, and another interviewing our volunteer team leader from the Action Center. You can find these on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ColumbineKiwanis. Please check them out, and share them with your friends so that we can spread the word about the great ways we engage in our community.

Phoebe
April 26, 2017 – Today’s guest speakers were Phoebe Kochis and her mother Jeanie. Phoebe is the current Miss Amazing Teen Colorado 2017. Phoebe spoke to our Club about the Miss Amazing organization and performed a modern dance routine.
