The five Kiwanis clubs in Columbia sponsored the 63rd Annual Kiwanis Pancake Day on Saturday, March 21, 2015, at the Dulaney Ballroom, Columbia College Campus. The five clubs are Columbia Club, Golden K, Boonslick, Little Dixie, and Westside. Members from all five clubs mixed the batter, manned the grills, and prepared and served plates loaded with pancakes, ham, and (optional) eggs from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Other groups assisted the five clubs – about 150 volunteers from the Benton and Gentry School Builders clubs and Columbia Aktion Club for adults with disabilities.

The 19th annual Cleanup Columbia, a citywide trash pickup event organized by the City of Columbia's Volunteer Programs, was held the morning of Saturday, April 11. More than 500 volunteers from 40 groups registered to participate in the event. 

Volunteers picked up litter on Columbia streets and trails, in streams and in parks. 

Following trash pickup, volunteers were invited to a picnic lunch at noon at Twin Lakes Recreation Area, sponsored by APAC-Missouri Inc., to celebrate their efforts. One of the groups helping to serve the lunch were members of Golden K Kiwanis club.
