41 members of the local civic organization were out in force at the intersection of Jefferson and Michigan last weekend asking for donations from drivers in exchange for a bag of peanuts. Kiwanians were also at the entrance of Kroger’s and Wal-Mart.
Peanut Committee Chairman Tom Sibal said “Peanut Days is the second largest fundraiser we do to raise money for area children’s programs and scholarships. I am always in awe at how generous the people of Marshall County are when we ask for their help. We received a number of large bills this year, including several $20.00 bills.”
Funds raised from this event stay entirely local and provide money for Kiwanis to award scholarships to Plymouth and Argos High School students as well as a variety of other charitable causes such as the local Boys and Girls Club.
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and once community at a time. The Plymouth Kiwanis meet each Tuesday at noon at Christo’s Banquet Center in Plymouth and interested new members are always welcome. For more information contact Tom Sibal at 935-8442.
