The Livingston Kiwanis is a club of about 45 men and women who are committed to helping others in the community. The…More club's good works include transporting surplus food donated by the Izod Center in Newark to a local food pantry, providing Thanksgiving dinner for the poor, giving grants to the Little League, the Livingston Library and local charities, and awarding scholarships.
The Kiwanis' major fundraiser is its annual Karnival, held in May each year in a field at 70 E. Northfield Rd. The Karnival features rides and food, including pizza and funnel cake from the Kiwanis' own mobile kitchen. The club also holds an annual golf outing.
Weekly meetings are held over dinner at Hanover Manor. Anyone is welcome to join as a member or simply to volunteer. Membership dues are $50 per quarter, and a dues reduction program is also available for those who need it.
