The Kiwanis Club of East Lansing is excited to partner with East Lansing Public Schools to present the first annual BBQ Football Classic!  Join us Friday October 8 and enjoy the traditional Kiwanis Chicken Dinner at one of two locations – in a drive thru line at Patriarche Park or at East Lansing High School.  Dinners will be ready at 4:30 and we will serve at the High School until 6:30 and at the Park until 7:00.  Then attend the game and root on our East Lansing Trojans as they battle Holt.  Dinners are only $15 each and proceeds go to support Kiwanis’s work in the community as we work to accomplish the Kiwanis Mission of making the things better for the children of the world.

To honor the memory of Don Power

In partnership with the Pinecrest Community Association, our club recently installed this bench at the Henry Fine Park, near the Pinecrest Elementary School. The bench honors our late member, Don Power, who took a vital interest in the East Lansing community.
