It was a Kiwanis Family event when the Kiwanis Round-Up Club of Pendleton conducted their Governor's Project for the 2004-2005 year recently.

With the assistance of Club President Lynette Gilliland, the Kiwanis Round-Up Club of Pendleton found a project that met the requirements for the 2004-2005 Governor's Project. We contacted the Pendleton Parks Department and learned the City had budgeted funds to plant approximately 175 trees near the Keystone RV Plant and adjacent to I-84. As a result, our club volunteered to help plant the trees.

Approximately thirty people participated in planting approximately 130 trees, including members of the Kiwanis Round-Up Club of Pendleton, Kiwanis Club of Pendleton, and the Pendleton High School Key Club. We also had the able assistance of spouses and children of Kiwanis Club members, Key Club Advisor Cathy Muller, City Manager Larry Lehman, Mayor-Elect Phillip Houk, City Landscape Designer Tom Hartzell, and the City Parks crew.

Our project is not quite complete since approximately 50 trees will be delivered in the spring.

We had sufficient helpers to complete this project in about two hours, so we also did a road-side clean up of the area. We ended the event with a pizza party at Big John's Hometown Pizza.
