Spokane, WAā€”A limited quantity of ornaments commemorating the 30thĀ running of BloomsdayĀ are still available. The 24k gold-flashed ornaments were created by the Kiwanis Club of Country Homes (in northĀ Spokane) to raise funds for community projects. The delicate-looking ornaments feature three-dimensional figures resembling the famous runners statues inĀ RiverfrontĀ Park, lilacs, and the year. They are the fourth in a series honoring variousĀ SpokaneĀ landmarks including theĀ Monroe StreetĀ bridge and the county courthouse.

Ā 

The Kiwanis Club sold the ornaments at the Bloomsday Trade Show, and are now offering them for sale to the public. Funds raised from the sale go back into the community through the Kiwanis Clubā€™s activities and donations to organizations such as HOBY (Hugh Oā€™Brien Youth Leadership training), Cancer Patient Careā€™s Lorene Miller bike ride, Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery and many more. The ornaments can be purchased by downloading and mailing anĀ order formĀ along with a check (or credit card payment) of $9.00 ($7.00 plus $2.00 shipping and handling).

Ā 

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. Country Homes Kiwanis was established in January 1950 and over the years has contributed many thousands of hours and dollars in service to theĀ SpokaneĀ community, the country and the world.
