2022-09-19 Golf Tournament Cancelled 😢

Friends of Kiwanis;
It is not the news we wanted to share but it is what we need to share, the 4th Annual Kiwanis Golf Tournament of September 19th at North Granite Ridge has been cancelled for this year. 
There are certainly disappointed people, however the economic climate made it challenging for us and out of respect for our regular sponsors and golfers we were sensitive to their issues with staffing and simply trying to stay afloat, even though some would have made the effort to help, the numbers were not going to make it a meaningful tournament for the course as well as our golfers. We'll be back next year and trust that the economic climate will be in a better place as well. As for this event, those who have actually made payments, your funds will be returned, with our thanks.

Tentatively save the date of Monday, September 18, 2023 for the return of Kiwanis to beautiful North Granite Ridge G.C.

Remember the funds raised here - stay here, for the students right here.

Brenda Wainman Goulet was an amazing leader in the art community and achieved world wide recognition for her work.  The Kiwanis Club of Huntsville Muskoka was honoured to dedicate our first scholarship at Huntsville High School to the legacy of her and ensuring in some small way that her memory lives on through the aspiring careers of our annual recipients.

2022-06-02 Kids' Bike Rodeo

A fun time was had by all.  Kids cycled through multiple stations beginning with Bicycle & Helmet Safety, to a multitude of areas to practice their skills.  Some were pretty tricky as they peeked over their shoulder to identify a photo behind them, and still stay in the lines with their bicycle.  Many laughs, many lessons, much fun!

We are pleased to approve sending the SKC* students of Dwight’s Irwin Memorial PS to Camp Arrowhead for a cool day trip experience, getting away at the end of a truly challenging year.  Nicole Caracciolo, the SKC Program leader was so pleased to hear we were able to provide this respite for her students as some don’t get a chance like this often enough.
