1st Annual Kiwanis Butterfly Festival

In October of 2018 the club organized its first new Signature Service Project, the Kiwanis Butterfly Festival, at Mueller Lake Park. With support from the Mueller community, plants provided by The Great Outdoors, and numerous silent auction donors, the club raised $1300 for the Windsor Park Neighborhood Association to supplement their fundraising efforts to construct shades for the playground at Bartholomew District Park.


Fall 2018

In the fall, the club played host to 6 of the 7 candidates for Austin City Council’s District 1 seat. We enjoyed hearing about the needs each candidate identified in Austin’s rapidly changing Northeast and had great conversations about the future of our city. 

Winn Elementary Butterfly Garden
In the fall of 2018, club members partnered with neighbors of University Hills and families of Winn Elementary to transform a neglected garden into a certified butterfly garden.

2019 Texas-Oklahoma District of CKI Convention

In March, the Texas-Oklahoma District of CKI hosted its 65th annual district convention in Austin with a Wizard of Oz theme. Our club members were sponsors of the events (Bill was a “Yellow Brick” table sponsor) and others participated in the networking luncheon to share stories with the college student members of CKI of their professional experience and involvement in Kiwanis.

Members of our club spent a few hours volunteering with Inside Books Project sending books and letters to people incarcerated across Texas. Everyone deserves the opportunity to read, learn, and grow.
