Kiwanis cooks pancake breakfast before Strawberry Days parade

On June 22, Kiwanis cooked pancakes and, for the early birds, caribou sausage, home fries and eggs, with orange juice and coffee, starting at 7:45 a.m. at the corner of Eighth and Colorado. As parade participants began to line up, a couple hundred took advantage of the free breakfast. Many passers-by were surprised and pleased to find the free meal, especially people from out of town, enjoying Strawberry Days for the first time. Kiwanians entered their KeeWee Car in the parade, hauled on a flat bed semitrailer from Gould Construction. Kiwanians also worked the start of the parade and the parade route selling Ball Race tickets. The annual Kiwanis Ball Race occurred Sunday at 2:30 p.m. on Hyland Drive.

River Center thanks Mike Marcucci

River Center New Castle just completed its second school year of the Kids Totes of Hope Program, which provides a bag of nonperishable food for hungry children and their families every weekend during the school year. Mike Marcucci, general manager of Pepsi Beverage Co./New Castle, streamlined the process this past year by allowing the Food Bank of the Rockies to deliver the totes of food to the Pepsi Distribution Center in New Castle once a month, storing it in his facility, and delivering a pallet of food every Wednesday morning to be unloaded, packed and delivered to four schools in the New Castle/Silt Community. Prior to Mike’s involvement, River Center had to pick up its food in Grand Junction every other week during the school year. Thank you, Mike, for your support of this much-needed program in our community.
