Thanks for a great breakfast

On behalf of the Golden K1 Kiwanis Club I would like to thank all the members of the Albert Lea High School choir who spent the morning last Sunday working to serve the community at our Dad’s Belgian Waffles breakfast! They were awesome! Three parents also spent their morning working beside their kids and were such a huge help! Our sincere thanks to: Kristin, Matt and Conner Larson, Joy and Tanner Shaft, Kole Smith, Dan Mondeel and Jalen Jimenez.

Kiwanis’ mission is to do all we can for kids. This is our main fundraiser. We raise about $2,000 in that one day and then return it to any and all groups who speak to us or help us. We also give two $750 scholarships to graduating seniors over and above the $2,000. It is heartwarming to interact with our high school leaders at our breakfast. They are hard-working, energetic and helpful and pleasant! Our thanks to Diane Haney for her work to encourage and inspire these young people! Together, with the kids and their parents, you are building a strong group of leaders!
