Winthrop Kiwanis Host Record-Setting “Bite of the Methow” in Support of Methow Valley Youth

LBHS Building Trades StudentsThis past Sunday, members of the Winthrop Kiwanis hosted the annual “Bite of the Methow.”

Supported by the Liberty Bell Key Clubbers, LBHS Baseball Team, LBHS Construction Trades Classmates, and members of the newly established Friends of Kiwanis, the annual event provided community members with an opportunity enjoy one another’s company and some fantastic food while raising money in support of the many service projects set to unfold in the coming year.

While it’s not yet official, it appears the beautiful, hand-crafted coffee table designed and built by LBHS’s Construction Trades students may have set the record for the largest single donation in “Bite” history!

When asked about this year’s event, Winthrop Kiwanis Bite Chair Rick Lewis stated, “Thank you, all, for the effort, care, and commitment to the success of this great community event… Onward we go, doing great things to support kids, and our community as a whole, into the next year.”
