The Kiwanis Club of Jackson is pleased to announce it is part of the new Splash Pad at The Cascades in Jackson County, Michigan. It has sponsored the Kiwanis bucket and the Kids Zone, which are sure to delight children.

The Splash Pad held its Grand Opening on June 29. Kiwanians funded and served ice cream and pizza. Then, eight of them stood under the bucket, and were doused. Cold, but fun, many said!
