Kiwanis Club thanks community for support
Polson Kiwanis Club thanks the community for its support at the annual Kiwanis Buffalo Burger Fest Feb. 9.
We are indebted to VFW Post 2986 (and its Commander Don Lilly) for allowing our use of its facilities, kitchen and upstairs meeting room at 423 Main St., Polson. We flipped 300 burgers, served with potato and green salads, along with pies for dessert.
Additionally, we thank the following Polson High School Key Club members for helping Kiwanis serve up meals at the Buffalo Burger Fest: Annie Venters, Sarah Devlin, Henry Ho, Trevers Moll, Chelsey Cree, Riley Grogan, Katherina Medlund, Nick Grogan, Madeline Hewston, Chelsea Chowning, Jordan Hindshaw, James Larson, Dani Howlett, Jaime Morelli, Marisa Binder, and Jordan Gochis.
Sponsored by Kiwanis, the Key Club prepares these young people to be leaders and serve their communities. Kiwanis appreciates Key Club’s advisor, Donna Olson, in guiding their efforts, as well as her help at the event.
The purpose of Kiwanis International is to serve the youth in our communities and the world. As a result of the Buffalo Burger Fest and its participation with the Polson Lions Club at the Flathead County Fair, Polson Kiwanis Club is able to give college scholarships, financially assist Key Club members in attending training at conferences, provide funding to the Polson High School music program for musical instruments, donate covers for the swimming pools for the Boys & Girls Club in Ronan, and contribute in numerous ways to the youth in Lake County.
Lake County, thank you for helping Polson Kiwanis Club continue to promote our youth.
