The Rio del Sol Kiwanis Club would like to express our sincere gratitude to the community for their generosity in our recent Coats for Kids drive. I have always heard about what a generous community we live in but this goes above anything that I have ever seen before.

Some who made the Coats for Kids drive such a huge success and to whom we would like to give a huge Thank You to are: Fire Stations 1,,2,4,5, and 6, ConocoPhillips, Permian Power Tongs, Bill Kruger and American General Media, Clear Channel Media, KOB TV, Piedra Vista tennis team, San Juan College, J. A. Jewelers, Casa Hermosa, Probation and Parole Office, San Juan County Sheriff's Deputies, Four Corners Community Bank, Majestic Media signs, the previous Farmington Kiwanis Club, and the couple who cleaned all the gently used coats: Anita and Bob Brooks, owners of Howard's Cleaners. They spent many late hours getting all the gently used coats ready. There are many, many others who donated coats and gave numerous volunteer hours; please know that you are so appreciated. This event would not have been possible without you!

Several hundred San Juan County boys and girls will be warmer this winter because of your contribution to this wonderful program.
