Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Swift Current -

The Ki­wa­nis Club of Swift Cur­rent re­cently held its An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing where Com­mit­tees re­ported ac­tiv­i­ties to date.

Be­cause of tremen­dous com­mu­nity sup­port for fundrais­ers such as Ap­ple and Christ­mas Tree sales, the an­nual golf tour­na­ment, and the Lober­ster­fest pro­ject un­der­taken jointly with the Ro­tary Club, Ki­wa­nis is able to pro­vide as­sis­tance for many lo­cal ini­tia­tives.

One of the ma­jor Ki­wa­nis com­mit­tees, the Com­mu­nity Ser­vices Com­mit­tee, co-chaired by Peggy Drin­kle and Stew Tasche, re­ported the fol­low­ing ac­tiv­i­ties:
