Picnic Preservation

Members of the Kiwanis Club of The Dalles gather at Sorosis Park for Kiwanis One Day, an annual day of service for Kiwanis clubs around the world on Oct. 31. Although was originally scheduled for Oct. 24, The Dalles club postponed due to weather. Paint brushes in-hand, Kiwanis members spent the beautiful afternoon enjoying the camaraderie and sealing picnic tables and benches at the barbecue area at Sorosis Park. The project has been long-needed at the popular gathering site and home of the local Kiwanis’ annual Steak Feed fundraiser, which was canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Club participate in many local projects that serve the community, especially its children, including the library summer reading program, high school and art center scholarships, holiday bell ringing and toy drive, books for Head Start, park projects and more. The club meets weekly, and is always looking for new members interested in bettering their community. Learn more online at www.thedalleskiwanis.org or call 541-296-6713.
