Glenwood Springs Key Club and Kiwanis Club help WindWalkers

On Nov. 2, members of the Glenwood Springs High School Key Club joined members of the Glenwood Springs Kiwanis Club, garnering about eight volunteer hours each, as they worked on various maintenance and repair projects at the WindWalkers of Carbondale facility on Missouri Heights outside of Carbondale. Key Club members painted barrels and signs for the riding ring, cleaned up brush, fixed a frozen watering tank and assisted other groups in their tasks. Kiwanis members used their welding skills to repair a heavy sliding door that hasn’t worked properly for months, did some finishing work on the tack room they previously built, repaired sagging gates and sticky locks, replaced worn and chewed out siding on outdoor sheds, and replaced missing pieces of fences.

For information on Kiwanis contact president Deana Hermanson at 970-945-8511.
