Kiwanis of Niceville-Valparaiso Builds Patio for Kids
Members of the Kiwanis Club of Niceville-Valparaiso donated their time and hard work during a recent workday to build an outdoor patio for the kids to enjoy. The work group included dedicated Kiwanis members from the Niceville, Valparaiso and Bluewater Bay areas.
Several times each year the Niceville Kiwanis sponsors a work day, usually held on 5th Saturday mornings. Their efforts help to ensure that CIC is able to continue to provide the best homes and environment possible for the at-risk children of our community.
Ken Hair, CIC President & CEO commented, “The Niceville-Valparaiso Kiwanis Club has a wonderful membership that’s always ready and willing to roll up their sleeves and support a worthy cause… It’s all about the kids!”
