Almonte Junior Civitan Club
Looking for Community Hours and having fun at the same time? Want to help make your school and community a better place? Almonte Junior Civitans are set to begin another year of service in Mississippi Mills.
We are a group of young people in grades 7-12, sponsored by the Almonte Civitan Club, which run service and fundraising projects from September to June. You will find us:
- helping seniors play Bingo at Fairview Manor and providing prize money
- taking part in Collection Selection – collecting milk bags & making mats for Haiti
- supporting The Mills Group Home Hallowe’en and Spring Dances
- laying a wreathe at the Remembrance Day Service
- running a coat cheque for the Violet Femmes Fundraiser
- taking part in the Hub Angel Tree program and Lions-Civitan Christmas Hampers
- supporting Light Up The Night
- supporting special school projects at ADHS and Notre Dame Catholic High Schools
- helping our Senior Civitan Club with their Christmas Group Home project and other ventures
- taking part in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Wi Bowling
- running two major fundraisers – a Spaghetti Supper and Mother’s Day Breakfast
- enjoying a pizza party or two
- making donations to the Civitan International Research Centre, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Almonte General Hospital, Hub Hospice, LAWS, Mississippi Youth Center among others
In our 2018-19 year we donated $3217 to groups in our community.
We meet at the Civitan Hall, on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month for about an hour starting at 7:30 pm. We have 3 Almonte Civitan advisors that oversee our work.
Our first meeting is Wednesday, September 11th.
