Kiwanis fundraiser

The Kiwanis Club of Brainerd on Tuesday, Nov. 16 held one of its major annual fundraisers in the Brainerd campus cafeteria, where nearly 400 guests enjoyed a spaghetti and meatballs supper prepared by the new campus food service vendor, Northwest Pizza & Boardwalk Bread & Bagel. From such fundraisers, the club annually provides three $500 scholarships to CLC students. Jim Tousignant, president of the club, said the campus of CLC provides a fine setting for the fundraiser, with lots of parking and safe, clean facilities -- not to mention the accommodating staff. On this night, the campus also hosted Minnesota College Athletic Conference basketball games, advisory boards for the Accounting, Welding, and Marine and Small Engine programs at CLC, a Parent Communty Cafe through the CLC Child Development program, automotive certification testing, real estate licensure class, and electrical coding class.
