Kinnikinnik Donates Tree To New Park in Black Forest

On Friday, June 24, several Kinnikinnik members gathered at the new park and pavilion located adjacent to the historic Log School in Black Forest.  We were there to admire the tree our conservation chairman, Andi, had requested as our conservation project this year.  Kinnikinnik Chapter has contributed to the preservation of the school for many years and with the addition of the park we contributed money to purchase a deciduous tree to add color to the grounds.  The Log School, Community Center and now a new pavilion and park have been developed at the corner of Shoup and Black Forest Roads.  This is an ongoing project that will take time to complete and we are excited to be a part of this historic preservation project.  Thank you to our Chaplain, Juanita for the dedication prayer.

Project Patriot Delivers Much Needed Assistance

On June 17, Project Patriot Chairman, Jan and Regent Barb personally delivered the generous contribution from Kinnikinnik Chapter members to the Family Services Center at Fort Carson.  Monetary donations and gift cards to local restaurants were collected during the months of March, April and May.  This has been an annual project for our Chapter for several years and it is always received with smiles and tears.  Both Yvette and Nancy from the Services Center expressed their sincere appreciation for the badly needed funds designated to help out our service families.  The needs are great and never end.  Thank you to all members who contributed so generously this year.
