Kiwanis barbecues for Glenwood Springs Elementary Back-To-School Celebration

On Sept. 11 Glenwood Springs Kiwanis Club staffed the barbecue grill to help GSES welcome back their teachers, students and parents. Starting school is a huge event for students, and Kiwanis is there to help them celebrate the beginning of a new chapter in their lives. More than 500 people came through the line to get their hamburgers or hot dogs. For more information about Kiwanis, call Deana Hermanson, President-elect (970-945-8511).

Kiwanis runs bike rodeo for Valley View Hospital Kids And Teens Safety Fair

On Sept. 14, 10 Kiwanians and three student nurses from Colorado Mountain College helped just shy of 200 kids learn about safety on the roads. Kiwanians laid out a course designed to show kids some of the traffic signs and maneuvers they might encounter in real life, like turns, traffic circles, traffic-slowing-bumps, stop and yield signs, and pedestrian crossing signs. The kids were required first to watch a video on bike safety and then get fitted for a helmet, provided free thanks to a contribution from Dr. David Miller, before riding through the course.
