Outgoing directors as of Sept. 30 are Jonathan Beasley, Dennis Hunter and Bob Lewit.
Due to COVID 19, the club was required to shut down our weekly meetings through April 2020, at which time meetings resumed at the picnic shelter at Kiwanis Park, where social distancing could be practiced and masks were required. Most activities of the club continued to function during the shutdown. Due to the need for food, the Head Start backpack program which normally pauses during the summer continued to operate all year. All the major fundraising projects, including the gospel concert and the Kiwanis Wilderness Trail Festival, had to be canceled.
The club meets each Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn in Christiansburg.
