I have been a member, officer and board member of the Kiwanis Club of Lafayette, Louisiana for the past 6.5 years. We have truly impacted our community in positive manner in all that we do. I had the privilege of serving as the lead member on Parc Independence, the first handicapable and adaptive playground in Lafayette. This was a collaborative effort by Kiwanis Club of Lafayette and Lafayette Consolidated Government--Parks and Recreation Department. To date, we have spent Kiwanis monies in addition to monies from Lafayette Consolidated Government to continue to expand our development of this playground. I take great pride in visiting Parc Independence on a regular basis and questioning the parents and children who utilize this playground only to hear of the appreciation that someone or some organization took the time to address this need in our community. As a parent of a special needs child I am most grateful that our organization, my organization accepted this challenge and committed to see this project through and further commits to address the needs of all children in our community with our efforts in the past and those yet to come. I highly recommend Kiwanis Club of Lafayette and support all we do to positively influence our community. Kemper Bowen
