Community Service Award

Volunteers give a part of themselves. They invest their time, energy and skills to make a difference in their communities. Being able to make a difference brings a sense of satisfaction worth more than money. The paycheck for volunteer work performed is much less tangible, but often times more valuable — friendships among members, a sense of self-worth and the feeling of being appreciated, to name a few.
The Kiwanis International Club or Westport, Indiana each year is honored to highlight someone who has given so much to the community. The Community Service award is issued at the Annual BBQ and Car Show each year.
