Front Royal Kiwanis Club donates money for playground equipment

The Kiwanis Club of Front Royal has announced it donated another $3,000 to E. Wilson Morrison Elementary School for new playground equipment at the local school.

The club made the check presentation to E. Wilson Morrison Principal Margaret Holmes on May 7.

This makes a total of $6,000 that the Front Royal Kiwanis has donated to the playground fund over two years.

The playground fund is a community project that also involves the Linden Rotary Club.

Holmes spoke to the Front Royal Kiwanis Club May 7 about success of the Kiwanis Club’s Bringing up Grades or “BUGS” program at the school.

The Kiwanis-sponsored program provides students with recognition for improving their grades or making certain other agreed-upon goals, like learning new words.

Front Royal Kiwanis also sponsors the K-Kids Club at E. Wilson Morrison Elementary. K-Kids is a student leadership program backed by Kiwanis International. The Front Royal School is also the location for Front Royal Kiwanis Club’s Pancake Day every December.

Front Royal Kiwanis meets at 6 p.m. most Wednesdays at the Front Royal Diner. For meeting or membership information, call club President Wayne Barber at 540-252-2137.
