Kiwanis And UMW Volleyball Team Help Cleanup Dillon

DILLON, Mont., Aug. 21, 2023 – The University of Montana Western volleyball team

and the Kiwanis Club of Dillon, Montana joined together for a mini street cleanup of

Dillon on Wednesday, Aug. 21.

“Our team made the decision to become more involved in the community,” head coach

Katie Lovett said. “They understand the importance of giving back and this was a great

first step.”

The volleyball team roster was divided into three groups of six players per group to cover

the three designated cleanup zones of downtown Dillon, north Montana Street and, Vine

and North Walnut streets.

When full, the heavy-duty trash bags were placed in the utility trailer of Kiwanian Donn

Ross for removal to the landfill.

“Our goal was to not have many full bags of trash,” club spokesman Wally Feldt said.

“The team did a great job and picked up a lot junk. Hopefully this sparks everyone to do

a better job of policing the trash and keeping Dillon clean. It’s a good reminder to us all

to pick up the empty soda can or bottle instead of stepping over it.”

At the conclusion of the cleanup, the team was treated to lunch donated by Dillon’s Town

and Country Food store.

The Kiwanis meet the first and third Wednesday of each month at 12 p.m. at the

Beaverhead Brewery, 218 South Montana Street in downtown Dillon.

The Kiwanis Club of Dillon has been serving our community since 1940.
