Salvation Army kettle is out for Christmas

Anacortes Kiwanis member Dennis Schafer stepped up with many other local service organization members, teaming Saturday with the Salvation Army to seek “Red Kettle” donations for important community services. All Red Kettle funds are used locally through the 110-plus year-old Salvation Army Anacortes Corps on “R” Avenue. Thanks to all Red Kettle volunteers!

Holiday volunteers

John Gibboney (left) is one of the most dedicated professionals I have ever known.

Clock’s ticking

The clock’s ticking, and beautiful trees are still for sale at the Kiwanis Club lot in the parking area of Sebo’s hardware store on Commercial Avenue. Among volunteers at the tree lot are Don Fenkner and Walt Jensen. Proceeds from tree sales go to community “investments” such as college scholarships for local students.
