The Wilton Kiwanis Club is gearing up for a busy spring with an active luncheon speaker program and its quarterly food drive.
The food drive will be held Friday, March 29, Saturday, March 30, and Sunday, March 31 at Village Market and Stop and Shop in Wilton. Kiwanis members will be on hand at the stores collecting food needed to stock Wilton’s food bank.
The public is invited to attend Kiwanis luncheons which are held on Wednesdays at the Episcopal/Presbyterian Church complex at 48 New Canaan Road (WEPCO).
Following each luncheon there will be a guest speaker from 1 to 1:30. Cost for the luncheon is $15. There is no charge to just hear the speaker. For more information or to reserve a luncheon spot call Bud Taylor at 203-354-0208.
