GLADWIN – The Gladwin Kiwanis Club will continue the tradition of selling roses to coincide with Sweetest Day, a day to recognize the special folks in your life: wives, mothers, sweethearts, secretaries, co-workers, etc. Sweetest Day this year is Saturday, Oct. 19.
Members of the Kiwanis Club are taking orders now for delivery on Oct. 17 and 18. If you have ordered in the past, you will likely be contacted by one of the Kiwanis members. You may also contact any Kiwanis member to be sure you are included in this special event or call Duane Miller at 989-802-2024.
Roses, packaged by the dozen, will be prepared by Kiwanis and Gladwin High School Key Club members the night before delivery to guarantee a fresh product. The price of $20 is competitive and the quality will be excellent. The roses will be available in red and yellow this year.
This project, along with others, provides funding for Kiwanis to continue the many community services, particularly for children and youth, that Kiwanis has become known for.
Currently they are gearing up to distribute dictionaries to all 3rd graders in Gladwin County. Their annual scholarships to seniors in county schools continues, as well as support of Gladwin Christmas Festival of Lights, Beaverton Little League, Christmas giving to families in need of assistance, and support of children, as well as many more services for children and youth.
Along with their High School counterpart, the Key Club, Kiwanis continues to find a number of worthwhile activities to serve our community. For more information contact: Duane Miller at 989-802-2024.
