The Benton Kiwanis club was organized around 1960 by Dr. Robert McCrory, a local veterinarian.  The club helped to organize the annual Tater Day events.  This started with a parade, horse races, and mule pulls.  Later, Casey's Rides brought their carnival and rides to Lovett City Park.  Tater Day weekend is the Benton Kiwanis' fundraiser and one of the largest events in our region.  All money raised goes toward helping children throughout our community.
