The Hasbrouck Heights Kiwanis Club will celebrate 50 years of service to our community on Sunday, February 2, 2003 with a brunch at the Holiday Inn. At that time the club will also pay tribute to Dr. Burnett Eglow, the only active member of Kiwanis who is also a charter member of the club. Dr. Eglow is one of the original ten men who sat down with representatives of Kiwanis International to lay down the plans to form the Kiwanis Club of Hasbrouck Heights and Teterboro.
The Kiwanis Club of Hasbrouck Heights was chartered on January 17, 1953. With each year since its chartered night, the club has grown in stature, purpose and respect in our community. Some of the many community groups that have benefited from Kiwanis efforts during the past fifty years are the Ambulance Corps, Fire Department, Little League, Soccer Association, Anti-Drug Campaign, Jr. Football League, Student Loan Fund, Cheerleaders, High School Band, Graduating Seniors, Project Graduation, Friendly Neighbors, Welfare Department, Boy and Girl Scouts, Senior Citizens and the Free Public Library.
Some of the projects the group has accomplished for the community are the purchase of a football score board for the athletic field, the purchasing and placing of trash cans on the Boulevard, the purchase of Jaws of Life for the Fire Department, the purchase of Bullet Proof Vests for the Police Department and the erection of enclosed bus stops on the Boulevard.
Club President Colleen Jarvis
stated that efforts are being made to contact all past presidents and former members to
have then join in this special celebration. Tickets are $35 each and can be obtained from
any member of the Kiwanis Club or by calling Marie Viducich at 201-288-9270.
