Winterville Civitan hosts the Snowflake 10K every January.  This event is a great way for local businesses and community members to come together and raise money for projects supporting the community and persons with disabilities.  We hope that as you make your plans for 2018 you will consider supporting our efforts.  We are a volunteer service club.

The Snowflake 10K is held in the Historic City of Winterville.  The race course is certified by USA Track & Field and awards points in the Classic Race Series, Run & See Georgia Grand Prix, Black Bag Race Series, Clover Glove Race Series, Firefly Race Series, and is a Peachtree Road Race qualifier.

Please contact President-Elect Micheal Law with any questions at

You may apply as a participant or as a sponsor.  Click here for video, photos, and race results from the 2022 Snowflake 10K.


Claxton Fruitcake

Each year during the holiday season, for over half a century Civitans have been selling Claxton Fruitcake to fund various community service projects. Today, local Civitan Clubs work with area grocery retailers to continue to bring Claxton fruitcake to the community and fund local service projects. 

Claxton Fruitcakes are available now and can be purchased from any Civitan member, or at these store locations:

CVS, Kroger, and Publix 

For questions about Claxton Fruitcake, or if you are a business that would like to sell them, please contact Steve Rice: 706.742.7475
