The Aktion Club of Florence, Alabama
The Aktion Club of Florence, Alabama was originally chartered in May, 2017. The driving force for establishing the club was the then-president of the Florence Kiwanis Club, Jim McGee, who planned to be a club's advisor. Unfortunately, Jim passed away prior to formation of the club. The club has been associated with SCOPE 310 (a non-profit organization serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities) since the inception of the Club. All 17 of the current members are clients of SCOPE 310. SCOPE 310 also provides advisors, a meeting place, and transportation for members to service project locations and other activities. Click here for more info on SCOPE 310.
The members are eager and often excited to plan and execute community projects. Included in the projects performed this first year are cleaning cigarette butts from Wilson Park (twice), cleaning windows at the Senior Center, working at the animal shelter, hanging bird houses at the Boy Scout Camp (bird houses built and donated by a Kiwanis member), helping at Kiwanis Pancake Day, and decorating a Christmas tree for an event at the Tennessee Valley Art Center in Tuscumbia. The members were also able to conduct a monthly meeting while eating lunch at Logan’s, compliments of one of our good friends. Several of the members enjoyed attending the Alabama Aktion Clubs District Fall Conference in Huntsville this past October.
