Kermit the Frog sang, “It’ Not Easy Being Green,” but the Estherville Noon Kiwanis has made a little easier over the past 14 months with its recycling program.

Kiwanians have sponsored a recycling program and continues to do so with citizens encourgaed to take their stacks of paper, newspapers and magazines to the trailer located at 2803 Murray Road at Intercept Industries (the former Woodland Container building).

Collections of old phone books, hardcover (with jackets removed) and soft cover books are also accepted.

Thanks to all who have donated so far.

The project serves a double purpose. Besides keeping paper out of the landfill, it raises money for Kiwanis.

Kiwanis is a service organization with the motto of “changing the world one child and one community at a time.”

The group supports the following:

n College scholarships.

n Cub Scouts.

n Little League.

n Special Olympics.

n Halloween Association.

n Meals on Wheels.

n National Honor Society.

n Emmet County Food Pantry.

n Emmet County Kinship.

n Post Prom.

n Emmet County 4-H.

n Regional Wellness Center.

In our book, there are some mighty nice neighbors who belong to Estherville Noon Kiwanis who are doing their part to help all of us.
