The Kirkland community and surrounding neighborhoods came through once again this year in its support of the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland’s Christmas Tree Lot. The lot opened the day after Thanksgiving and officially sold its last tree on Dec. 16, a record for closing early. The Kiwanis club is grateful to the community for the loyalty and support it has shown over the years.

The Kiwanis Club of Kirkland is one of the oldest and largest service organizations in Kirkland with 88 members. All proceeds from fund raising go directly to children and families in need, including student scholarships, Kirkland Interfaith Transitions in Housing, March of Dimes, Eastside Baby Corner and many other charitable causes. The club also sponsors leadership groups in our local junior and high schools, known as Builder’s Club and Key Club, as well as support to the Kirkland Teen Union Building. These groups offer leadership and mentoring, impacting hundreds of teens in your community.

If you would like more information about this all volunteer non-profit please contact club secretary Matt Gregory at (425) 828-0231, attend one of their weekly Wednesday lunch meetings at noon at the Hector’s Restaurant or visit kirkland.kiwanis.org.
