The Kiwanis Club of Dixon says “thank you” to everyone in the community who has supported the Kiwanis “Bring Up Grades” (BUG) program, now in its fourth year.
BUG awards were presented to students in St. Anne and St. Mary schools in February. Eighty-seven students were recognized for their academic achievement. This included 62 BUG recipients and 25 honor roll recipients.
The BUG program continues through the remainder of the school year.
Students have two more chances to become BUG or honor roll recipients.
Through the fundraising efforts of the Dixon Kiwanis and the wonderful support of area businesses, a variety of awards are made available to students, including BUG T-shirts, BUG certificates, Kiwanis honor roll certificates, food certificates and coupons, and more.
Dixon Kiwanis gives a special “thank you” to the following businesses for donating food certificates and coupons: Culver’s, Dairy Queen, McDonald’s, Mama Ciminos, Subway, Oliver’s Corner Market, and Wendy’s.
Note to readers: John Holthaus is the program chairman.
