Three Rivers Kiwanis Auction

June 16, 2006 - TRC

The Three River Kiwanis Club of Milo and Brownville will be holding their annual auction on Thursday, June 22 and Friday, June 23.

The auction will begin at 5:00 PM in front of the Milo Farmers Union on Park Street in Milo.

There will also be a yard sale, fifty-fifty raffle, food wagon (selling hotdogs, hamburgers, fries, and soft drinks).

The Three Rivers Kiwanis Club runs their annual auction to raise funds that help with their many good works for children and the community.

Projects that are for children include a library program at the Milo Library every Wednesday after school for young children. The children are walked from the school to the library, books are read to them, a healthy snack is served, and they do a craft project. This is all done by Kiwanians. Other projects are RIF (Reading Is Fundamental), summer library books for children (as many as 7 each in grades K-6), Key Club in PVHS, Bike Safety Rodeo, Secret Santa,Terrific Kids, funding a children's chorus, and many other projects as requested. In April Kiwanians held a quilting bee and 30 childrens' quilts were made and sent to Boston to the New England Medical Center for KPTI as part of the Linus project.

For adults they provide a dinner and program every Veterans Day for all area veterans, provide food wagon for the Cruize-In and other events, produce an annual variety show. Kiwanians have built a gazebo for the Veterans Memorial Park in Milo. They rejuvenated the Milo Town Hall Art Center, held a golf tournament, helped with the maintanenc of the Brownville riverwalk, and the list goes on.

Please remember the Kiwanis generous support of our communities as you bid at the auction - every dollar goes to a very good cause.

Items of special interest this year at the auction will be two pop-up campers. One is a nine foot (9') Star Craft, and the other is a twelve foot (12')Viking Trans-AUW 2000.
