Kiwanis Aktion Club
CMH is pleased to have a special service club for adults with disabilities. The Lapeer Aktion Club, formed in Lapeer in August, 2011, is sponsored by the Lapeer Sunrise Kiwanis Club. There are more than 30 Aktion Clubs in Michigan, with 700+ members. For more information, you can go to the Kiwanis International web site, www.aktionclub.org
The Aktion Club, with advisors Laird Kellie, a Sunrise Kiwanis member and Lapeer CMH Board member, and Kim Bradley, a CMH professional, meets the second and fourth Monday of every month at 12:30 PM at the Maple Grove School, 2020 Imlay City Road, just east of the City of Lapeer.
The Aktion Club has a variety of activities every year, including picnics, trips to the water park, Christmas parties, participation in the Lapeer Days parade and member birthday celebrations. They also have a unique enterprise, making, packaging, and selling dog treats. The proceeds are donated to local causes and charities at the members’ direction.
The Lapeer Aktion Club is a perfect fit for the mission of Mental Health services. For more information, call Laird Kellie at (810)667-0633 or Kim Bradley at (810)667-0500.
