Live Longer and HappierĀ 

It wasn't long ago that the New York Times published an article on a recent scientific study that had yielded the secret to long life. The secret?

Be involved in your community.

You won't get any argument from the members of the Greater Kingston Kiwanis. Club members have proven to themselves that the sense of satisfaction from being involved in the community and making a difference in the quality of life of those around you can improve your own life.

Kingston Kiwanis exists to make life better for children, but we understand that the process includes making life better for all members of the family from young to old. Throughout the years, our focus on the youngest has consistently benefited the adults in the community as well.

For example, Kingston Kiwanis hold several food drives throughout the year for the benefit of local food banks such as ShareNet and the Kingston Food Bank. The additional donations of food and money benefit not only children, but all members of their family.

Another example: Kingston Kiwanis members were active in the initial set up of the Boys & Girls Club which has a home now at Kingston Middle School. The activities of the Boys & Girls Club not only benefits the kids, but also the parents who can be sure their children are in a safe place after school is out.

That's another point: Volunteering in Kiwanis often leads to volunteering in other community efforts. Several members of Kiwanis continue to serve on the Boys & Girls Club board. Others have also branched out to serve on the Village Green Foundation, downtown association, Community Advisory Committee, and other organizations.

Helping others, it turns out, is not only healthy, it's pleasurable, even addictive.

So next Thursday morning, why not get up early, come down to the Oak Table Cafe at 7 a.m., and learn how you can become involved in creating a better life for your community--and yourself.

What's the Best About Our Club?

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.


The Greater Kingston Kiwanis supports that goal by dedicating its volunteer efforts to improve the lives of children in northern Kitsap County through a variety of community programs and activities.
