•?Sisters Kiwanis Club would like to salute everyone who participated in the May 25 Antique, Jewelry, and Collectibles Sale.

Thanks to our community volunteers, the Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire Dept., and all who donated and purchased items for the sale.

Proceeds go to support local youth organizations, scholarships for students, awards to career-changing adults, and much more.

Thank you!

•?The Rotary Club of Sisters extends a big thank-you to several folks who made the 10th annual Books for Kids project a big success — Teri Cairns and the U.S. Forest Service; Sisters School District; Paige Bentley-Flannery and the Sisters Branch of the Deschutes Public Library; Tyler Cranor and students from Sisters High School; Peggy Tehan and the Sisters Ukulele Group; Paulina Springs Books; the City of Sisters; and The Rotary Foundation for providing funds for this

event.

Every year this project puts an emphasis on literacy and gives each first-grader at Sisters Elementary School, Sisters Christian Academy, Black Butte School, Tumalo Elementary School, and Sisters-area home-schooled first-graders a backpack with a hardback book of the student’s choice, a T-shirt, as well as other materials emphasizing literacy and the joy of reading. The people, businesses and organizations of this great town that we live in make it all possible. Thank you.
