      Spirit Lake Sunrise Kiwanis

The Spirit Lake Kiwanis Club,

as a community project, cleans Buffalo Run Beach. The beach

is located on the west side of
Big Spirit Lake. This project replaces our Monday morning meeting. After the clean up members of the club come to 
the Kiwanis Park and shelter house for a potluck picnic. This popular event 
welcomes club members, and their significant others, for a great social event mixed in with club business.



 
 If you are thinking of an  inter-club, give us a try  and then spend a few  hours exploring our lakes  for fishing, relaxing  or just checking out all we have to offer.
