Beta Events

The Beta Club once again completed a successful fundraiser! They sold 240 racks of ribs this for this year’s rib fundraiser, and  they plan to use the money they earned to attend the State Beta Convention in March. The Beta Club also volunteered to cut up fruit, which was donated by the Arnett Chamber of Commerce, to serve to the runners that participated in the rodeo weekend 5K, hosted by the Arnett Science Club. Look forward to them helping out on Kiwanis’ Kids Day!
Open House
We would like to thank everyone that attended the Open House on September 7th. We hope that you thoroughly enjoyed our tours and demonstrations.
