The Concord Kiwanis Club celebrated its 90th anniversary at
Camp Spaulding in Concord on April 27, with music, munchies, and merriment.
Members from around New Hampshire, about 50, as well as dignitaries and officials from the New England District Office attended the event that featured music by Kid Jazz and reminiscing about the club, projects they had undertaken, and the history of the organization.
A few Key Club members were in attendance as well although one person noted that since the weather was spotty and it was the last day of April vacation, it wasn’t a surprise that only a few children were at the event. Another official noted after a political joke that regardless of the political persuasion of members, the work of Kiwanians, and others in the community, was about putting children first.
The annual Concord Kiwanis Carnival, by the way, will be held May 15, to May 18, at the Everett Arena in Concord, so mark your calendars. The group also has a Facebook page for updates.
Here are some pictures from the event.
