Ankeny Miracle Leauge Fall Season Opens

The Ankeny Kiwanis Club helped open the Ankeny Miracle Parks Fall Season on August 24th.  It was a little damp to start, but there was plenty of competition on the field.  The day also brought the opening of the concession and rest room building as the major construction elements were completed just hours before game time. 




Thank You for Coming Out to PancakeFest

Ankeny Kiwanis had one of its biggest crowds this past Saturday, July 12 for PancakeFest.  The Combination of good weather, great pancakes and being by the parade drew in lots of people to enjoy breakfast.  Thanks to all who stopped to eat and those who got a to go package.  Look forward to seeing everyone next year.
