The Kiwanis Club of Orange Texas recently joined forces with Spanky’s Bar and Grill to treat CASA teenagers to dinner and a movie.

The Padawans and their chaperones enjoyed boiled crawfish and hot gumbo at Spanky’s.  The group then “blasted off” to the movies for a viewing of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

The expansion of a playground designed for special needs students at Little Cypress Intermediate recently got a $600 boost from the Kiwanis Club of Orange, Texas.

The Stay and Play Recreational Area, a fully inclusive playground, is currently a 40x40 foot area for both safety and comfort of special needs students. The expansion will add an additional 16 feet of play area and will allow for a raised grass pad level with a rubberized cushioned surface, creating a smooth transition for wheelchairs and walkers.

An unforgettable night of magic is coming to Orange. The Kiwanis Club is hosting a magic show with illusionist C.J. Johnson on Monday, April 27, at the Little Cypress Mauriceville High School Auditorium at 7 p.m. Johnson, a Texas native, is sure to make the skeptics think twice. His performance is engaging for children and entertaining for adults. Tickets are available for an $11 donation and can be picked up at the Lamar State College-Orange cashier’s office on the second floor of the Ron E.
