Oct. 9. The Kiwanis Aktion Club of Lake Norman has received the Most Committed Club of the Year award from the Arc of Mecklenburg County, a non-profit that serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The award was presented by Steve McIlwaine, a program assistant at Arc, at the regular September meeting. The Aktion club is composed of special needs adults, 18 years of age or older, who conduct programs and projects to better themselves and their community.
