Letter to Canby Herald Editor John Baker from the week beginning May 22

The Canby Kiwanis has been a part of Canby since 1938. The Canby Kiwanis Thrift Store has been a part of this community since 1958. All of the excess revenue from this small nonprofit, except for Doernbecher Children's Hospital and Kiwanis SIGN program, goes back into this community.

I'm happy to share the results of our first biannual half-price sale from May 6. We raised $3,170 for the new Dolly Parton Imagination library program in Canby.STOCK IMAGE - Pamplin Media Group

Children to 5 years old and living in the Canby School District are eligible to sign up at the public library or here at the Canby Kiwanis Thrift Store. Each eligible child will receive one free book a month. What a wonderful opportunity to encourage our youth to read books and nurture a love of reading.

The generosity of this wonderful community has given the Canby Kiwanis the resources to fund many local programs and projects like the Community Food and Toy Drive, Canby Public Library, Kiddie Kapers Parade, Canby School District, 4H/FFA Junior Livestock Auction, Canby Adult Center, Canby Police Bicycle Rodeo, The Canby Center and the list goes on.

You are always welcome to stop by the store and check us out. Shop for treasures, donate your unused/unneeded items or come by and volunteer if you have some time.

I continue to be grateful and humbled to be a part of this awesome community.
