Kiwanis Club names scholarship winners

The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield held its annual Scholarship Luncheon on Wednesday, June 8, 2016 at the Gaelic American Club where four outstanding seniors graduating from Fairfield’s local high schools were awarded scholarships. The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield is proud to announce that this year’s scholarship winners are:   

CAITLIN WARDLOW from Notre Dame High School, SEAN SULLIVAN from Fairfield Warde High School, MATTHEW ONOFRIO from Fairfield Ludlowe High School and JULIO PALENCIA from Fairfield Prep High School.

Along with the award winners, their families and the Principals of both Fairfield Prep and Notre Dame High School, other guests in attendance were:  Fairfield’s First Selectman Michael Tetreau and members of the Board of Education, Fire & Police Departments, as well as many students from our sponsored Key Clubs.

The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield was chartered in 1961 and has been committed to the youth of Fairfield ever since. Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world by “changing the world one child and one community at a time.” Our affiliates include the Key Clubs in the local high schools.   Kiwanis members can be seen in action at the Kiwanis Fall Craft Fair on the Fairfield Town Hall Green, our annual poinsettia sales, and our recent successful golf tournament which raised several thousand dollars for Wakeman’s Boys & Girls Club.   Kiwanis service projects focus on the needs of children, including child care, early development, infant health, nutrition, parenting skills and the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute, which is part of Tufts Medical Center in Boston.

On behalf of the Kiwanis Club of Fairfield, we wish to congratulate this year’s winners and thank all those who participated in this great event and look forward to awarding another great group of seniors next year. For information about Kiwanis send your inquiries to Thomas Maniscalco: PO Box 432, Fairfield, CT 06824 or email Thomas at [email protected]. The Kiwanis Club always welcomes new members.
