SINAWIKS

In 1959-1960 the members’ wives of Humber Valley organized a companion group with its own objectives, mainly at the time to provide leisure activities.  The ladies called themselves “Sinawiks” a word that spells Kiwanis backward.  This wonderful group of ladies meets regularly today around social activities but also with a strong desire to raise their own funds for community projects.   The Sinawiks have always steadfastly supported the members of Humber Valley (and now The Kiwanis Club of Kingsway Humber) with years of dedicated community service.  Members have hosted events and parties, selling baked goods, nuts, maple syrup, helping with garage sales, volunteering long hours at the Kiwanis Music Festival, Canadian Blood Services clinic, serving school breakfasts and reading to children and so much more.   

In 2012 SINAWIKS members will donate a $500 scholarship to a young musician at the Kiwanis Music Festival.   Provide 6 baskets to a Women’s Shelter and Outreach Program in Halton and contribute further donations throughout the year.
