1991

The club started a new program "Reading is Fundamental", designed for disadvantaged and inner city pre-school children.  A book is read to them by a Kiwanis volunteer and then the child is presented with the book, to keep. This program has been delivered and managed by Brian Charanduk since it started.

The land was purchased for Kiwanis Safety City in May and the official sod turning took place in September.

Our club had our first ever woman President.

We became involved in the 'Home Works Program', a volunteer program designed by Alberta Housing to assist low income families to find suitable and affordable housing.  This was a joint venture:  the City provided the lot, Workers' Compensation Rehabilitation Center provided manpower, NAIT provided supervision and KCSE provided materials ($30,000) to build a house.

We provided the funding for an outdoor gazebo at Camp He Ho Ha.  The gazebo is used for a great many activities by the campers.  KCSE dedicated the gazebo in memory of one of the camp founders, our member the late Dr. Ken Gordon.

1996

Construction began on the permanent classroom and office building for Kiwanis Safety City.


The club joined with Kiwanis International to participate in the worldwide program in conjunction with UNICEF. Millions of children around the globe were suffering due a lack of Iodine in their diet. An estimated 28 million babies were born each year at risk of mental impairment due to insufficient iodine in their mothers' diets. Hundreds of thousands of children and adults suffered the most debilitating effect of iodine deficiency: a condition known as cretinism. The Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) campaign raised nearly $100 million world wide leading to a significant reduction in the number of children with this disorder.

2003
The club not only raised the funds for a new kid's playground at WINGS (Women In Need Growing Stronger), but the club members then got together and built it!

2010
Working with the other Edmonton Clubs, we hosted a Key Leader camp for high school students.  The students attended a weekend long event with a focus on gaining leadership skills.  The club continues to support this great project.

Also in 2010, we planned and executed "Buy Nothing Days".  This event is held concurrent to Black Friday and is a counterpoint to that focus on conspicuous consumerism.  People are encourage to bring gently used articles they no longer need, and take home anything they can use.  There is no cost to either drop off or take away merchandise.  This is an ongoing event.

2012
The Kiwanis Club of South Edmonton joined with KI once again on a world wide service project.  We have committed to 'Model Club' status and working to raise funds to honor that obligation. With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch.
