Panhandle Kiwanis Past President Dave Eubanks and Secretary Elaine Espinosa proudly present a $500 check to Rosa A. Mettler, LCSW chief programs officer and Emily Aizawa fundraiser manager for Children's Village. Panhandle Kiwanis is proud to support of the great works of Coeur d Alene's Children's Village.
Children's Village is a residential home for children who are in need of a safe-haven from abuse, neglect, or severe family crisis. Our contribution will help Children's Village to provide care, including stability, safety, and love — 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for local children in need.
At the Coeur d' Alene City Park, the FIRST weekend in August, Panhandle Kiwanis sponsored our annual Taste of Coeur d Alene event. Over 100 artisans and food vendors participated in this fantastic money raiser.
Pictured on the left represents just a few of our enthusiastic volunteers. These are just some of our outstanding community focused members and they are an important part of our great success. Special KUDOS go to this year's project leads Kent & Rio Setty and Vendor/Artisan Coordinator Kathy McDowell for their excellent efforts to bring this huge project together along with a fantastic group of strong, hard working volunteers.
We featured excellent micro-brews in our Beer Garden and the on-stage entertainment for young and old was AMAZING.
We're looking forward to growing this fun happening next year!
We hope to see you there!
