PARSIPPANY — Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany hosted a “K-Family” night on Friday, June 8 at the Parsippany High School.
DJ Jay Gee and Comedian KC Arora entertained the “K-Family” and food was provided by Pomptonian Food Services.
The event was attended by Key Club Members, Parents, Teachers and members of the Kiwanis Club.
Club President Frank Cahill said “This has been a good year for Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany. We are the fastest growing Kiwanis Club in New Jersey. Our club sponsored our first Circle K club. Seton Hall University. I would like to introduce Seton Hall’s First President Tabitha LaRocca and Vice President Joseph Carbone. Welcome to our K-family.”
Cahill gave all the credit to Kiwanis member Gordon Meth, for his vision in starting the Seton Hall Circle K and following through until it became a reality.
In addition, Cahill said “Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany supports nine K-Kid clubs: Lake Parsippany Elementary School, Eastlake Elementary School, Mt. Tabor Elementary School, Littleton Elementary School, Lake Hiawatha Elementary School, Troy Hills Elementary School, Northvail Elementary School, Knollwood School and Rockaway Meadow Elementary School, two builder’s clubs, Central Middle School and Brooklawn Middle School; two Key Clubs, Parsippany Hills High School and Parsippany High School and one Aktion Club. That’s over 500 kids our club sponsors.”
“In addition to Seton Hall University, one of my goals to have the only elementary school in Parsippany, Intervale School, which does not have a K-Kids, to join and become part of our family. I am happy to say, we are in the final stages of completing the registration for Intervale K-Kids, which should be active starting in September,” said Cahill.
These kids are amazing. They raise funds and supports projects throughout the school year. They raise money for Unicef, send candy and hearts for Valentines Day to people serving our country, raise money for Eliminate, Cook for senior citizens, Cook at Homeless Solutions, conduct food drives for Parsippany Food Pantry among other things. The members of Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany would like to thank every student of our K-Kids, Builders Club and Key Clubs and making a difference in our community.
