MILLBURN, NJ - The Millburn High School Key Club invites all interested community members to its second Kiwanis Club organizational meeting on Tuesday, April 9, at 7 PM in the MHS cafeteria. 

The club held their first community meeting to introduce the plan to start a new Kiwanis Club in Millburn on March 18. They were successful in generating enough interest to schedule this second meeting and officially create the new club.

Last year, the local Kiwanis Club, which had served Millburn, Short Hills and Springfield for more than 60 years, returned its charter and disbanded. The Millburn High School Key Club is working to create a new club to carry on the Kiwanis’ mission, “Changing the world, one child and one community at a time.”

Locally, Kiwanis Clubs sponsor youth leadership and community service organizations such as the Key Club. Worldwide, they do much more. Kiwanis and UNICEF worked together for a campaign that successfully ended Iodine Deficiency Disease in the world. Now they are working to end Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus.

Despite their broad goals, Kiwanis Clubs primarily put their time and effort into local projects. They were among the first to provide support during Hurricane Sandy, checking on people’s welfare (particularly the elderly), distributing potable water, and making sure people had enough food and blankets.

The effort to build a new local Kiwanis club is fully supported by Mayor Sandra Haimoff, Township Business Administrator Tim Gordon, Schools Superintendent James Crisfield, Board of Education members Jeffrey Waters, Michael Birnberg, Eric Siegel, and Rona Wenik, and High School Principal William Miron.

“We would like you to consider becoming charter members of this organization whose major focus will be dedicated to the growth and sustenance of Millburn and Short Hills. Volunteering to help your neighbors, in good times and in bad, can weave the fabric and strengthen the ties that bind a township’s residents together. We would love to have you join us as we plan for the future of Millburn and Short Hills,” MHS Key Club Advisor, Neil Cooperman said.

Anyone interested in learning more is urged to attend the meeting. You may contact Neil Cooperman at neil.cooperman@millburn.org.
