"When I made a decision to do more for my community eight years ago, I reviewed the local clubs, Lions, Rotary, Fire Department, etc., but what helped shape my decision were my two small children," remarked Scott Wilson of the Kiwanis Club.†"While all the local clubs here in Southampton are worthy organizations, the beautiful thing about Kiwanis in particular is that their only focus is helping children."
