Tot Lot: Our Club donated funds to the City of Manassas in to build a Tot Lot in Baldwin Park for the use of young children and their families. In 2015, the Club assisted the City with renovations to the Tot Lot and held a reopening ceremony November 2015. Our club regularly participates in the City of Manassas Adopt a Park Program to maintain the tidiness and appearance of the Tot Lot and Baldwin Park. To date, the Tot Lot and Baldwin Park are the most utilized areas in the City of Manassas.
Boys and Girls Club. Our predecessor, The Kiwanis Club of Manassas was a founding partner in the establishment of a branch of the Boys and Girls Club in Manassas. The Club led a community campaign among local service clubs beginning in the 1970’s to raise funds and organize a local club for boys and girls. The Kiwanis Foundation of Manassas, Inc., the successor to this early effort, was a major contributor to the construction of the current Boys and Girls Club facility located on Dean Drive on the City’s Dean Park. This 44,000 square feet facility was able to be completed as a result of a partnership between the Foundation, the City of Manassas and the Greater Washington Boys and Girls Club Board of Directors. The Manassas Battlefield Kiwanis Club continues to support the Boys and Girls Club through donations and support of their events.
SERVE: Our Club supports the local SERVE shelter through participation in the SERVE Bowl a Thon each Spring and through direct donations.
BEAT the ODDS: Our Club supports the Beat the Odds Program a program of the Prince William County Bar Association which supports youth from troubled homes through mentoring and leadership training.
Annual Steak Fry: Since the late 1940s, Kiwanis has hosted the annual Kiwanis Steak Fry. The Steak Fry has been hosted at the Inn at Vint Hill for the past several years. Kiwanians and friends from Northern and Central Virginia as well as Maryland and the District of Columbia enjoy a sit-down dinner featuring steaks and vegetables. The Steak Fry presents an opportunity for fellowship and an opportunity to mingle with old friends and guests.
Our Kiwanis Club sponsors several Key Clubs in our local Prince William County High Schools. The Key Clubs are active in serving their schools and communities. They are the high school equivalent of Kiwanis Clubs except they situated in our high schools. Our Key Clubs support our service events and we support theirs.
Each Spring we recognize the volunteer work of our Key Club Leaders and their Faulty Advisors at a Dinner.
