Jamestown Kiwanis Club member Janna Bergstedt introduced speaker Joan Morris at the Feb. 13 Kiwanis Meeting. Morris is the controller at Agri-Cover Inc. and also serves on the Jamestown Area Chamber of Commerce’s City Beautification Committee.
Morris shared information about the new sensory garden that will be opening this summer at Solien-Denault Park in northeast Jamestown. She said the area will be devoted to providing experiences for multiple senses - sight, touch, smell, hear and perhaps taste. It’s a partnership with the Jamestown Parks and Recreation Department and the Chamber’s City Beautification Committee. The design and layout will be handicap accessible and available for all visitors.
Another initiative that the Beautification Committee is leading is recycling. Morris said curbside recycling is expected to occur this summer. Recycling containers will be given to residents and picked up every other week, she said.
President Amanda Thrift led the Feb. 13 regular meeting attended by 17 members and three guests. Don Bentz led group singing accompanied by Tim Burchill, and Katie Ryan-Anderson collected “Happy Dollars” for the Salvation Army.
Ryan-Anderson was the member spotlight for the club, and she shared information about herself with club members. She is originally from Omaha, Neb., and is the marketing manager for Jamestown Regional Medical Center. She and her husband have two sons.
Terry Lund will introduce Connie Ova from Jamestown/ Stutsman Development Corp. as the speaker at the Feb. 27 Kiwanis meeting at the Quality Inn & Suites.
The 50 members of Jamestown Kiwanis meet at noon on Mondays. They welcome new members to join the club whose mission is to improve the world one child and one community at a time.
