Livability and Beautification

Although we are not participating in the National America in Bloom program again this year, we are taking donations to help with the cost of beautification projects and have already received donations.

Beautification program donations make the floral displays and other beautification projects possible. Please consider making a donation no matter how small this year. Funds are being raised for downtown art, Thielsen Street walking path, and park improvements. Suggestions for other projects are welcome.

St. Peters Church

The first-ever Oktoberfest; raised over $5700 towards the St. Peters community project. Since, volunteers have worked cleanup dates, produced a second Oktoberfest and held an open house for 150 people to see and talk about what to do with the church as an historical and unique asset in our community.

Kiwanis volunteers have put in many dozens of hours in both labor and organizing the effort to restore and revive the Church. In December, a seed-fund drive began which was answered with several contributions including an Anonymous $5000 cash donation.
