Not able to work after his stroke, Scott Kammeyer had plenty of time on his hands.

With a desire to give back to the community, he took Candy Pugh up on her offer to join the local St. Maries Kiwanis Club.

Scott Kammeyer was named Kiwanian of the Year. He has been an active member with the organization for two years. President Candy Pugh said he was selected because he is always willing to volunteer at various functions and is a hard worker.

Scott Kammeyer was named Kiwanian of the Year. He has been an active member with the organization for two years. President Candy Pugh said he was selected because he is always willing to volunteer at various functions and is a hard worker.

Two years later, Mr. Kammeyer was named Kiwanian of the Year.

“I didn’t really expect anything,” Mr. Kammeyer said, “being the new guy.”

Mrs. Pugh, who is the president, said Mr. Kammeyer was chosen for his willingness to help with the club’s various activities.

“He’s always available, always volunteered and showed up,” she said. “Plus, he’s a hard worker.”

“When I couldn’t work anymore, I just felt like I needed to do something to get involved in the community,” Mr. Kammeyer said. “(Kiwanis) is a very ambitious group.”

He said he had known about the group prior to joining but learned quickly just how much they do for the community.

“They give back a lot in dollars and time,” he said. “It’s a very worthwhile club.”

Mr. Kammeyer said he’s been involved with many activities through the club and does a lot of cooking whenever there is an event. Mr. Kammeyer is also involved with the Second Harvest food distribution.

If someone is looking for a way to get involved, Mr. Kammeyer said he would recommend the Kiwanis Club. He said he’d like to see the younger generation participate more.

“We need to get more members. Most of the members are older,” he said.

He added St. Maries “is a neat community.”

“It’s a good place to live,” he said. “I do plan to stay involved. Always willing to help.”

Mr. Kammeyer moved to St. Maries from Potlatch 15 years ago.
