Batesville Kiwanis Club turns 37

The Batesville Kiwanis Club will celebrate 37 years of helping children with a 6:30 p.m. birthday dinner party March 28 at the host site of each Tuesday morning meeting, The Sherman House, reports President Andy Allen. Festivities, including both fish and roast beef options, were designed by club historian Bob Fitzpatrick and social chair Frank Connelly. Throughout the dinner celebration, Kiwanis members will highlight programs, accomplishments and meaningful moments over the last year.

Established in 1977, Kiwanians continue to promote program initiatives designed to help all students in the Batesville and Oldenburg communities.

As spring finally arrives in southeastern Indiana, attention will turn to annual events both within the local Batesville and International Kiwanis calendars. Seven Batesville High School students will attend the annual Key Club District Convention in Indianapolis April 4-6 with sponsor Dr. Jere Schoettmer. These seven underclassmen will develop valuable leadership skills to further promote Key Club, a high school organization sponsored by Kiwanis International. Activities through local school initiatives include recycling programs, fundraisers to benefit Safe Passage and marketing development by creating a new Batesville Kiwanis Web site,, which will be undergoing major renovations in the coming months.

Additionally, the Kiwanis Student Leadership Academy, generously funded by Hillenbrand Inc., Hill-Rom and Margaret Mary Health, will hold its annual year-end banquet Sunday, May 4. The banquet will allow KSLA members to present yearlong project outcomes and share leadership lessons through organized project development.

Batesville Kiwanians will also participate in the annual Skip-a-Meal project April 1 and local prayer breakfast May 1, according to Allen.

Summertime provides several opportunities for club members to interact with community members through fellowship, food and activities. Kiwanians will provide concessions for June’s annual Batesville Music and Arts Festival held at Liberty Park. As the annual Ripley County Relay for Life event continues its successful run at Batesville High School, Kiwanians will again participate by providing tents for spectators and team members in support of those affected by cancer.
