Learn what the busiest service club in Cedar Valley is doing. The Cedar Falls Kiwanis Rough Risers is composed of 38 active members who pop kettlecorn, build shelters, pack food, and a myriad of other activities so that they can support the youth of the valley.
Every year our club serves the Cedar Valley in many ways. Our service is heart-warming in both the varied ways we help the community and the amount of service hours we give.
This year we provided 951 hours of service. Our C.F. Rough Risers put together another wonderful and productive year. Two noteworthy construction activities were the completion of the final shelter at the C.F. Youth Soccer Complex and painting both restrooms at Big Woods Lake. An Ongoing activity is the demolition project at Hartman Reserve.
In addition to our eight standard fundraising (popcorn) events, RAGBRAI 43 passed through Cedar Falls and we helped them by guiding cyclists to the proper areas.
