At a recent meeting of the Bayside Kiwanis Club were Assemblymember Ed Braunstein; Nodia Chambers, president of the Kiwanis Club of Jamaica; Joe Corace; William Risbrook, Kiwanis New York State Governor; and David Rothman, former governor of New York District.

The Kiwanis Club is coming back to Bayside.

After a three-year hiatus, the philanthropic organization has decided to revamp its Bayside chapter, which had previously existed in the neighborhood since 1940.

Kiwanis is an international organization aimed at offering opportunities for individuals to get involved in the leadership and improvement of their community, their country, and their planet.

“We make giving back easier on the individual by doing things that an individual would not be able to do,” said William Risbrook, the current Kiwanis New York State Governor.

Kiwanis sponsors cleanup projects, as well as holiday food and toy drives. They also send underprivileged children to Kamp Kiwanis.

If you are interested in becoming a Bayside Kiwanis Club member, you can attend meetings at Bourbon Street restaurant on Bell Boulevard.

“In these economic times government can’t do everything,” said Assemblymember Ed Braunstein. “We rely on groups like Kiwanis to fill in the cracks.”
