Kiwanis President Kimberly Marie Jack

Incoming Kiwanis President Kimberly Marie Jack presents a new banner to Carefree Mayor Les Peterson and Vice Mayor John Crane.

Kiwanis Club of Carefree is moving into the New Year with newly elected officers, new plans and a new goal to set in support for the Kiwanis community!  

The organization is committed to creating awareness and recognition of the Kiwanis projects directed toward “supporting the kids” in this local area. Volunteers are posting banners in Carefree and Cave Creek calling attention to the Kiwanis activities, as it does more than host a pancake breakfast twice a year. 

Each year, for the last several years, Kiwanis has donated thousands of dollars to the community with scholarships; Chrome Book Computers; and financial support for local, smaller but important charities and projects. 

The Kiwanis Club of Carefree is one of the largest Kiwanis clubs in the world, with roughly 150 members. Its focus is on helping children recognize and develop their potential. The members support post-secondary scholarships, summer art programs, special needs programs and youth service organizations.
