PRETZEL DAYS & PARADES
There is a weekend every year in late September when you will see Kiwanis members and various friends in and around Glenview and Northbrook at selected traffic intersections, as well as in front of some retail stores, requesting your donations for our Club Foundation fund. As a THANK YOU for your donation you will receive a small bag of pretzels, BUT NO PEANUTS!
Several years ago we noticed that some people made it clear that they did NOT want our gift of peanuts because of a peanut allergy. In addition, we also got the same reaction to peanuts when we would pass them out marching in the Glenview Independence and Holiday parades. Therefore, we switched our gift to pretzels. (Yes, we know there is a gluten allergy, but it apparently is not as prevalent as the peanut allergy.)
PLEASE BE GENEROUS WITH YOUR DONATION TO PRETZEL DAYS. WE DO NOT ASK FOR A DONATION WHILE MARCHING IN THE TWO PARADES. Your donation will eventually be further donated by our club to the various organizations shown on our Club Foundation page. WE THANK YOU AND A CHILD WILL THANK YOU!
