The Burlington Kiwanis has been very busy with their effort to serve the youth and others of the Burlington community. Our annual auction in May was a huge success. This is our major fund raiser for the year. We’d like to thank all who supported this event.

The community's involvement last year enabled the following:
  • Scholarships were awarded to deserving Carroll High School Seniors.
  • Support was given to the CHS Key Club.
  • Support was given for the Carroll Elementary Fourth Grade "I'm a Winner" program.
  • Junior Leaders for Carroll County 4H’ers were supported.
Plus, many other projects and activites were supported.

The goal each year is to raise $5,000 for youth and community projects.
