In fact, Sand Lake Kiwanis is providing our members with lunch at our February 10th meeting. Our members will be providing the desserts. On February 17th a luncheon will be held at Lakeview Restaurant. We are fortunate to have occasional guest speakers who give worthwhile informational talks on various topics, and occasionally entertain us with music and song.

Members and guests are expected to wear a mask until seated. Masks are worn whenever a person is “up and about” in the Banquet Room. Social distancing is encouraged. When the Averill Park School District is closed due to inclement weather, the Sand Lake Seniors Club’s meeting will be canceled.
