Landmark makes donation to Kiwanis

Ada —

The members of the Kiwanis club of Greater Ada, part of an international service club organization, help their community in a number of ways. 

To aid in helping them reach their continued objectives, the Kiwanis Club of Greater Ada is the recipient of a check for $1,865 from Landmark Bank. 

“We’re surprised and grateful to receive these funds,” Bob Vavricka of the Greater Ada Kiwanis Club said. “We plan to use it to make improvements in the Kiwanis Kiddie Park inside Wintersmith Park,” he added. 

Kiwanis clubs, located in 80 nations, are known the world over for the help they give others, especially to children. Working together in a team effort, a child is given the chance to learn, dream, experience and thrive, and great things can happen. 

Landmark Bank has arranged a series of $1,865 gifts to local charities in each of the 28 communities in which it operates. The donations commemorate its founding in 1865 and celebrate reaching a milestone $2 billion in assets. 

Bruce Cowart, president of Ada Landmark Bank, presented the check to Ada Kiwanians John Lowry, Gerald Williamson and Rick Wetherill. “We are glad for the opportunity to support this worthy cause,” he said.
