Service projects: (1) Terrific Kids, once every six weeks we honor third-graders at Alpine Elementary School for: (A) Bring Up Grades (BUGS): Students who have brought up their grades from the previous six weeks; (B) Perfect Attendance/No Tardies (PANTS): Students who have not missed any class days and who have not been tardy; (C) "A" Honor Roll; (D) Outstanding Citizenship; (2) annual Easter Egg Hunt, the Saturday before Easter, we host the annual Easter Egg Hunt for toddlers through elementary age kids. We hide over 5,000 Easter eggs at Kokernot Park and a giant Easter bunny drops by for pictures with the kids. Hundreds of kids participate and they love it! (3) Ministerial Alliance Easter Sunrise Service, Easter morning - We provide refreshments; (4) Alpine High School "Kiwanis Sophomore of the Year," in May we honor the outstanding sophomore of that academic year. The winner is always an excellent student who plans on attending college and who has a strong history of community service; (5) Alpine's 4th of July Parade - We organize the parade each year and award float prizes. We also organize the celebration at the park and, when possible, sponsor fireworks for the community; (6) throughout the year, we provide financial support to various children's athletic teams and the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.
