About a dozen of K-family students, parents and teachers joined the Friends of Oleta/Young Friends of Oleta and the Kiwanis SIB-NMB for a day to discover our Butterfly Garden and learn about our new Recycling Pilot program. The Kiwanis generously donated some native wildflowers and plants for the garden, which we all planted that day! Young Friends of Oleta recycling leader, Eduardo Chocron led the group on a cleanup, focused on sorting out recyclable material to avoid sending all Oleta's trash to landfill.
The Kiwanis grilled hotdogs for the group to extend some social time post-volunteering. The Friends of Oleta and the Kiwanis SIB-NMB chapter are mutual corporate members and we appreciate their support of our programs, butterfly garden project and events. Their President, Lew Thaler, is a board member and has been generous with his time and energy in boosting the Friends in the SIB-NMB community. We were thrilled to host them at a Park pavilion and to have more K-family kids into Oleta!
