FD Civitan Club wins honors

The Fort Dodge Civitan Club has received word from Civitan International President Kendyl Massey that it has received second place in the Presidents Award — Small Category for Candy Box Collections.

This was for the candy box collections that the club submitted for the 2016-2017 year that ended Sept. 30, 2017. The club collected $2,601.03.

The club places candy boxes filled with peppermints in local businesses. A portion of the money collected from those boxes is sent to the Civitan International organization to help pay for research into brain diseases such as epilepsy.

The small category is for clubs with rosters of 30 people or less.

The Fort Dodge Civitan Club will celebrate its 50th year in November.
