Service to the Perdido Bay community is our primary goal. The Kiwanis Club of Big Lagoon strives to fulfill the Kiwanis vision: "Of changing the world, one child and one community at a time." Through the active participation of our members, we help to educate our children, support our community, and establish ourselves as the premier service organization in the Perdido Bay Community. Here on our web site, you will discover how we work to accomplish this mission and why, in Kiwanis, our motto is, "We Build!"
Since 1984, when we were chartered, we've performed numerous Perdido Bay community service projects: helped to build and maintain Perdido Bay Kid's Park, sponsor the "Reading Is Fun Program" in five elementary schools, an active participant in "The Shots for Tots" through the Escambia County Shot Mobile, support the "Reading to Dogs Program" at the Escambia County S.W. Regional Library and Hallmark Elementary School, the sponsoring Kiwanis Club for the Builders Club at Jim Bailey Middle School, K-Kids Club at Blue Angels Elementary and the Key Club at West Pensacola Technical High School, Co-sponsor of The Aktion Club for challenged youth, fund a Scholarship through "The Excellence in Education" program for a deserving Jim Bailey Middle School student, give a personal dictionary or world atlas to every third grade student in our five elementary schools, Terrific Kids Program in four public and 4 private schools, support the Perdido Bay Youth Sports Association, and sponsor the "Mud Is Fun" creative arts program at The Belmont Arts Studio. These are just a few of the service projects in behalf of the children of Perdido Bay. The Kiwanis Club of Big Lagoon is a registered non-profit corporation in the State of Florida.
