Brock Goos Shares a Surprise with Us!

On February 8, 2017, Brock Goos, the Cedar Falls Recreation & Sports Program Supervisor, presented an informative and in-depth speech on how the CF Kiwanis Rough Riser sponsorship has positively affected the 100 plus Grade 4th & 5th aged kids introduction class of the game of basketball and soccer.  

Not only do the students learn the drills and fundamentals of the game and get needed exercise, the kids have loads of fun and as well as making new friends. 

They play 30 organized team lead games a year at a cost of $30 - $40. The program is held at Lincoln Elementary School on every Saturday from 10:30 - 11:45 AM. 

A big surprise for many of us was that we are sponsoring their softball and soccer teams.  While we all knew that we donated a significant amount of money to CF Rec Center each year, it was a surprise when Brock unveiled the shirts and they bore Kiwanis Rough Risers on the front of each one.

This is just one example of the youth programs that the Cedar Falls Kiwanis Rough Risers Club has wholeheartedly sponsored to make the Cedar Falls children our priority one.  The Cedar Falls Kiwanis is always looking for new members and we meet every Wednesday at 6:30 AM at the Clarion Inn University Plaza, 5826 University Avenue, Cedar Falls, Iowa.  Stop by for a visit!  - Lynn Barnes
