A “Pirates of the Caribbean” Bump-n-Jump will be available for a fun time. The Glenwood Hot Strings Band will be performing, if you have not heard this band, make a point to come and spend some time.

I have heard that the K-9 Corp will be making an appearance, as will Smokey Bear. A fun day to grab your kids or grandkids and head up to the activity center.

Congratulations to the Grand Valley High School Key Club. They came away this past weekend with several awards from the district convention. Because my daughter is very active in Key Club, I would personally like to thank Alison Teter for all the extra time she puts in being the Key Club sponsor. Also a big thanks to the Kiwanis Club for their active and continued support and encouragement of the Key Club. It is so important to teach our kids community service, and this organization is leading by example.
