January 9, 2019

The Skyline Kiwanis Club in Longmont will present five charities with a total of $15,000 on Wednesday at the American Legion in Longmont during their lunch hour.

The local charities that will benefit include the Longs Peak Learning Center, the Pearl Group, Meals on Wheels, A Women’s Work and the Crossroads School.

During the lunch the Kiwanis Club will also fundraise to pay for Fourth of July fireworks, which the city recently said they could no long budget for .

Kiwanis club members told Longmont City Council at a June meeting that it might not be able to continue being the sole local supporting the city’s fireworks displays, and that members thought other local organizations should contribute to the display.
