Our annual Mo Furcron Nut Sale is underway, with proceeds going towards scholarships and community playground equipment.
Our nut sale is named after long-time Kiwanian and civic servant Morris Furcron. The former village police chief was always our nut sale top seller. Today, many people continue to buy nuts out of loyalty to Morris.
Order forms are located throughout the business community, at the three schools, and from any Wellington Kiwanian. You can also order by leaving a message on Facebook or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out the order form here!
Kiwanis One Day
Saturday, Oct. 24 is Kiwanis One Day, a day when Kiwanis clubs around the world work together to improve their communities. This year, the Wellington Club is collecting new and still wrapped twin-size sheets, blankets and comforters, and pillows for Good Knights of Lorain County. Good Knights is a non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization dedicated to providing complete beds to children in need in Lorain County. They build twin-size beds and deliver them, and a complete set of bedding, to kids who do not have a bed of their own to sleep in. “Our goal is to do everything we can to ensure that every child has a safe and comfortable bed to sleep in.” https://www.facebook.com/goodknightsoflc/ We hope you will consider contributing to the well-being of our children.
