Our Sponsored Youth:

STARR PARK AND AREA PLAYGROUNDS ~York-Leicester Kiwanis has been instrumental in building and maintaining Starr Park in Leicester as a recreational facility used throughout the year by individuals, families, and community groups. Although some assistance is provided by the Village and Town of Leicester, the buildings and grounds have been built and are maintained by Y-L Kiwanians. In addition to this large-scale project in Leicester, the club also supports two other playgrounds in the York School District.

BOY AND GIRL SCOUTS OF AMERICA ~ York-Leicester Kiwanis was the charter sponsor of Leicester Boy Scout Troop 85 and continues to contribute annually to it as well as York Boy Scout Troop 76. An annual contribution is also given to the Genesee Valley Girl Scouts and York-Leicester Cub Scout Pack. In turn, the scouts are very generous and work alongside Kiwanians on both community activities and fundraisers.

ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP ~ York-Leicester Kiwanis provides an annual scholarship to a YCS senior who will pursue higher education at a vocational school.

SPORT SPONSORSHIP ~ York-Leicester Kiwanis proudly honors athletes from York Central School with sports awards at a special awards program following each of the three sport seasons – fall, winter, and spring. Kiwanis also cooperates with YCS to sponsor and provide awards for an annual winter holiday basketball tournament for girls and spring softball tournament for girls. In 2004 Y-L proudly sponsored a annual Jr.-High track event at YCS,

SHRINE CIRCUS ~ York-Leicester Kiwanis annually sponsors and chaperones this special, Saturday field trip for YCS Fourth graders and their families.

YOUNG CHILDREN ~ York-Leicester Kiwanis annually contributes books or equipment to nursery/day care programs in York and Leicester. In addition, Kiwanis works with the YCS PTA to help provide books for newborns and early school readers. Kiwanis also provides for a special “Quiet Fund,” available through the YCS Guidance Department, to provide for special, emergency needs.
