Allen Kiwanis Angel League

Games Played at Allen Station Park 1120 N Cedar Dr, Allen, TX 75002 Field 1
The Angel League t-ball/softball program is sponsored by our club. The goal of the program is to provide a positive recreational opportunity for special needs children ages 5 to 20 needing a modified sports activity. Children and adolescents learn how to pitch, catch, run the bases, throw the ball, and play with a team of other children to the level of their ability. Each player has one or two high school “buddies” to help them be successful and applaud their successes. Parents tell Kiwanis members how much their child loves playing in the Angel League and how much they look forward to each game. Buddies tell us how much the player they work with improves during the season. Players are rewarded for their successes with a trophy handed out at the end of the season at a pizza, cake, and drinks banquet sponsored by our club.

Third Grade Dictionary Project

The dictionary project for Allen Kiwanis Club began in Fall 2005 as a joint project with Allen Republican Women’s Club. The objective of this project is to place in the hands of all third graders of Allen ISD and Lovejoy ISD a personal copy of Webster’s Dictionary for Students. After ten years, this project distributes annually some 2000 dictionaries among students in the twenty elementary schools of Allen and Lovejoy districts. On presentation day, two or three club members offer a brief introduction of the dictionary either in separate classrooms or in a grade level assembly. A fun lesson reinforces earlier classroom instruction on how to use dictionary and emphasizes the resources in the appendix to include maps along with various lists, tables, and rules of English language. Students are encouraged to write their name in their very own book and to keep it handy for future use and sharing at home. All of this because learning is important!
