100th Annual Home Days
Kiwanis volunteers serving at Homedays
August 5-6, 2016
This year the Kiwanis Club of Independence was not present in our normal location. You know the tent by the bandstand. Instead we served up beer and wine. This was a huge change for us, but one that we welcomed and absolutely enjoyed! If you came by and enjoyed a cold one, you got the opportunity to meet our newest members as they served you. The Kiwanis Club of Independence thanks the community for their continued support.
