Kiwanis One Day – Potomac Watershed Cleanup – April 11, 2015

Kiwanis members serve their communities all year long. But the excitement for service really builds in April each year when Kiwanis members come together for Kiwanis One Day—a day of community service that is felt around the world. For more info about Kiwanis One Day, click here.

Here are a few of our members who participated in the cleanup at Point Lookout State Park.








Project Graduation

Project Graduation is a major initiative that our club volunteers at each year.

Since 1986, the mission of Project Graduation is to provide a safe, substance-free party environment for the graduating seniors of Charles County, and to show them how proud we are of their accomplishments.

The Charles County Citizens For Substance Free Youth, formerly know as “The Chemical People of  Charles County,”  have been the host of Project Graduation since the beginning. The event is held at the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) from 9pm until about 2am.

Kiwanis Club of Charles County volunteers its time and efforts in organizing the food for the recent graduates. This involves acquiring food donations from many restaurants and companies in our county. On the nights of Project Graduation, our members pick up the food, deliver it to CSM, and manage the food tables.
