Kiwanis announces tribute for Mother’s Day

Published 10:00 pm Tuesday, April 7, 2015

Kiwanis Club of Tryon announces a tribute to our moms, sisters, daughters and friends for Mother’s Day and a way to help mothers in other countries. By donating $25 and a picture of the mom you would like to honor, you will be paying for immunizing 13 moms in countries where tetanus is still a disease that kills mothers and babies by a painful death.

The picture and tribute to your marvelous mom will be attractively posted on a wall of honor in the hall of St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Wing a few days before and after Mother’s Day, May 10, 2015.

To make your tribute honoring your marvelous mom, submit a picture of your mom with a short tribute to her (100 words or less) and a check for $25 by April 24, 2015 to Cam Lawrence, 307 Lexington Rd., Landrum, SC 29356.
