2014-2015 RICHLAND KIWANIS FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION


KIWANIS "ONE" DAY, April 5, 2014**

** Note: Not all participants could be shown.

Each year, Kiwanis clubs around the world join in a day of service. In 2014, Kiwanis One Day was April 5. This year Richland Kiwanis helped improve the new community garden at the corner of Stevens and Jadwin. A community garden is a parcel of land divided into garden plots that are assigned to individuals, families or groups wishing to garden. These lots provide outdoor recreation, and fresh produce for residents, making Richland a healthier, safer and happier place to live and work. For information go to the Richland Parks and Recreation Community Garden web page.
