Letter to the editor: Thank you for making the Birder’s Breakfast a success

The Kiwanis Club of Monte Vista extends a big thank you to all who did their part to make the Crane Festival, including the Birders Breakfast, a huge success. Thank You Monte Vista Chamber of Commerce for planning and coordinating the event. Thanks to the vendors and information booths for providing goods to purchase and useful information. Thank you to the workshop leaders, tour guides and bus drivers for providing activities for festival attendees. Of course, without attendees the festival would be nothing. Thanks to all who attended.

The Kiwanis Club of Monte Vista is the local branch of Kiwanis International, a community service organization emphasizing “Serving the Children of the World”. Financing for our community service projects comes from fundraisers such as the Birders Breakfast. We give a special thank you to our sponsors who made the breakfast a successful fundraiser.
