Students, staff overwhelm us with kindness
Nov 28 2012, 12:03 PM
Snoqualmie Valley Kiwanis would like to extend our thanks for leadership, cooperation and support to the fifth grade teachers and elementary school principals in the Valley. For the first time ever, Kiwanis created an essay contest for fifth graders.
The topic of the essay was kindness. It was all part of Pay it Forward week sponsored by Snoqualmie Valley Women in Business. Kiwanis awarded 13 prizes of $50 cash for the best student essays. Many of the teachers spent time in their classrooms talking about kindness and promoting it with their students. Almost 300 essays were completed and submitted.
What a treat for our reviewers to read these very touching stories and what a hard job it was to pick the best 13.

I use different trails and mountains in the area, on an almost daily basis. I have never been threatened, or seen any threatening-looking dogs on these trails.
