Baecky Sintek of the Sandy Kiwanis Club,
with retired guide Hector.
The wonderful folks from the Sandy Kiwanis Club (with a few members of the Sandy Optimist Club thrown in for good measure) descended on our Oregon campus earlier this month to help make our grounds a little spiffier, a little more polished in celebration of the International Kiwanis Club’s “One Day” event where Kiwanis volunteers give of their time and energy in service of others.
The team of volunteers descended like a hive of busy bees – power-washing the kennel areas, pulling blackberry bushes, polishing windows and generally making our campus shine like a new penny. Once their tasks were complete, the volunteers stayed to witness a graduation ceremony, where six student-dog teams were celebrated for the hard work they had accomplished over the previous two weeks.
Thank you Sandy Kiwanis Club - we hope to see you back again next year!
