In preparation for the 2nd Annual Disc Golf Tournament, coming on October 2nd, the Jones Kiwanians worked together to prepare the course. During the October 2020 ice storm, one of the trees at Beatty-Mulhausen park lost a limb, blocking part to the new disc golf course. This weekend, armed with chainsaws, pole saws, and some good ole fashioned grit, members of the Kiwanis Club rolled up their sleeves to haul away the broken branches. Before the workday started, John McEwen drove his tractor to the field to brush hog the south side of the course, along the railroad tracks.
Glen “Bud” Williams, Calvin Rothell, and Ray Poland were there on Saturday, with work gloves and boots, ready to saw and clear limbs. In this collaborative effort to improve our town, the Jones School District loaned a trailer to haul off the limbs.
The Jones Kiwanis Club has been serving our community for the last 46 years. In addition to the new disc golf course, the Kiwanis Club has been instrumental in building the rest of the infrastructure around the park. If you’ve enjoyed one of the beautiful pavilions around the pond, you can thank the Kiwanis Club for that.
If you are interested in learning more about the Kiwanis Club, you can attend one of their weekly meetings every Friday at noon at Roosters Café. You can also check out their Facebook page or website.
