  • CLUB NEWS: Kassie Frazier Speaks to Kiwanis
    Friday, April 20, 2018 4:00 AM
    Kassie Frazier, the Executive Director of Sylvia’s Child Advocacy Center in Lebanon, Indiana, spoke to the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club this week during Child Abuse Prevention Month. The mission of Sylvia’s Child Advocacy Center (SCAC) is to minimize the trauma to any child who is involved in allegations of sexual and/or serious physical abuse or neglect and the subsequent investigation of those allegations.
    Frazier told us that SCAC uses a “multi-disciplinary team” including law enforcement, Department of Child Services, prosecutors, mental health professionals, and SANE nurses to meet the needs of these children and investigating any allegations that have been made after being referred to SCAC.
    With over 200 incidents that were investigated last year SCAC certainly fulfills a needed service in our community. 
    The Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club supports the work of Sylvia’s Child Advocacy Center and the help that it provides the children. Kiwanis needs Kids and Kids need Kiwanis. If you would like to hear more interesting presentations like this one come and visit us at the Crawfordsville District Public Library and Thursday at Noon.

  • Sarah Houston-Dicks speaks at Kiwanis
    Monday, April 16, 2018 4:00 AM
    The Crawfordsville Kiwanis club was pleased to welcome our guest speaker this week, Sarah Houston-Dicks. Dicks’ passion to change her community and the futures of female drug addicts led her to establish Half Way Home, a rehabilitation facility for female addicts. Although the facility is just over two years old the program has “graduated” over thirty women who have gone through the 180-day program. 
    The effect that this program has had on the women going through it is life changing, Dicks’ said. But it’s not just the effect on the women themselves but their families and in many cases the children involved.

  • CLUB NEWS: Judi and Greg Kleine speak at Kiwanis
    Friday, April 6, 2018 4:00 AM
    After participating on numerous mission trips to the West Indies and other locations in the Eastern Caribbean Judi and Greg Kleine wanted to take a vacation cruise to Barbados and St. Vincent. Just imagine, sun and fun while those of us who couldn’t go suffered through snow and cold weather last November and December. It was scheduled as a restful trip, and they would visit some of the friends they had met during some of their other mission trips. 
    Unfortunately, September 18, 2017 happened. A hurricane had formed just two days before in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and was headed straight toward the Windward Islands of the Eastern Caribbean. Maria was its name. 
    Judi and Greg took their cruise to Barbados and other Islands that had not been devastated and while in Barbados they met with some friends at the Windward Island School of Evangelism. It just so happened that the school had been working with others to help with all the devastation and there were three young men attending school there that were planning a trip to go to the tiny island of Dominica, about half the size of Montgomery County, to help repair or rebuild the homes of their families on the island. Judi and Greg said they would help.

  • Bitcoin or Bit Coin?
    Saturday, March 31, 2018 4:00 AM
    Fellow Kiwanian Gary Behling made a presentation on Thursday about Bitcoin and other “Cryptocurrencies” at the weekly Kiwanis luncheon. We learned that there are nearly 1600 types of cryptocurrencies available today and that number is growing daily. Bitcoin is only one of the types of cryptocurrencies available, but it is the largest and most valuable currency in the marketplace. In some places you can use Bitcoin to buy a Big Mac, order something from, pay for travel on or even to buy a new McLaren. Cryptocurrency might be the key to the future, but we always need new ways to invest in our Children and Kiwanis can help! Come on out and visit our Kiwanis meeting any Thursday at Noon at the Crawfordsville District Public Library. By the way, during his presentation Gary's Bitcoin dropped $94.00! Pictured is Gary Behling and his Bit Coin.

    Friday, March 23, 2018 4:00 AM
    Karen Branch, Executive Director of the Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau (YSB) spoke to the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club on Thursday. Branch provided some frightening statistics regarding the children of Montgomery County including the facts that over 16 percent of kids in Montgomery County live in homes that are at or below the poverty line and almost 20 percent of children are “food insecure” meaning that they don’t know where their next meal is coming from! 
    YSB is providing 11 different programs to Montgomery County children to help overcome some of the problems affecting them. From mentoring programs to Court Appointed Special Advocates for children to the NOURISH program which provides backpacks of food to needy children every Friday YSB is working hard to help children in our community. Contact the YSB at to see how you can help.
