Pictured from left to right is Kiwanis President Al Riggle and Kiwanians Dave Church & Jack McWhirter. The recognition would have normally been presented at the Indiana District of Kiwanis Mid Year Convention. Since it was cancelled due to the pandemic, the awards were mailed to Club Presidents to present. The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club just resumed meeting enabling the presentation of the awards. Dave earned his award for his work with fundraising both leading efforts for raising money for scholarships via the annual Kiwanis Golf Scramble and for helping restructure sponsorship opportunities for our corporate members. The Golf Scramble has raised over $100K since it’s inception. Jack earned his award for his marketing and branding efforts for the club. Jack is the architect for our Kiwanis website and has helped with Kiwanis branding for banners, letterhead, shirts, etc. Our Scottsburg Kiwanis Club is effective serving the kids in our community due to the efforts of local Kiwanians like Dave Church and Jack McWhirter. Congratulations on a job well done!
