Ft. Logan 2017
May 30, 2017 - Today, members of the Kiwanis Club of Columbine along with friends and family gathered at Ft. Logan National Cemetery to pick up flags. Numerous groups volunteer to place a flag on every grave site before Memorial Day. The Kiwanis Club of Columbine has been picking up the flags since 2010 when Riggs Smith organized our club to participate in this very rewarding activity.
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.
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.

X the Text
April 18, 2017 - Kiwanis Club of Columbine member and Allstate Insurance Agency Owner Brian Counterman and the Littleton High School Key Club organized the Allstate Foundations X the Text program at Littleton High School.
