A Century of Service: The Story of the Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma
A Century of Service is the untold story of this remarkable club, whose services to the city of Toronto are extensive, including-but certainly not limited to-the incredible rescue of Casa Loma. One hundred years ago, The Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma, then the Kiwanis Club of West Toronto, ushered in a new era of community leadership and volunteerism. This book provides a behind-the-scenes look at the Club’s earliest days, serving underprivileged boys in partnership with the Y.M.C.A., through to Casa Loma’s heyday, hosting many fundraisers and charitable events. The Club is active to this day in various programs supporting kids and the community.
A profound study of Canadian history, architecture, and volunteerism, A Century of Service offers a revisiting of the past and a path forward for community service ventures worldwide.
