Pleasant weather provided an ideal backdrop for the final Key Club/Kiwanis Club Sandwich Sales event of the 2022 season on Saturday, Oct. 1. Many thanks to all of the Morrison HS students—Key Club members and non-members alike—who have volunteered for Sandwich Sales during the May, June, July, August, September, and October events. Key Club would like to extend a special thanks to (l-r) Gavin Baker, Jeramiah Callan, and Elise Richards for their work during the Sandwich Sales event on Saturday, Oct. 1.
In addition, Key Club would like to recognize Morrison HS students Danielle Fulton and Shawna Simpson for their involvement in the Sandwich Sales events throughout the year. A special thanks, as well, to the many members of the Morrison High School Football team—including Gavin and Jeramiah—who have volunteered their time preparing sandwiches this season. Thank you to Morrison Kiwanis Club President Steve Davis and the members of the Morrison Kiwanis Club for their work behind the scenes before, during, and after each Sandwich Sales event.
Key Club also wishes to thank the hundreds of Morrison residents and visitors who have purchased sandwiches, chips, soft drinks, and snacks during the Sandwich Sales events this year. Without their support, the Morrison Kiwanis Club’s financial support for organizations and programs that benefit youth would not be possible.

Just a quick clarification. Tonight's meeting for the FAFSA is optional. ISAC is coming to provide information on how to complete the FAFSA and answer any questions families may have.
If your student does not wish to complete the FAFSA a waiver may be picked up in the counseling office to satisfy the state requirement.

Key Club and members of the Morrison Mustangs Football program worked together on Saturday, Sept. 17 to prepare sandwiches and raise funds for programs that serve youth in Morrison. Pictured (l-r) are football players Sebastian Carreno, Carson Strating, Logan Baker, Donny Reavy, Danny Mouw, and Hunter Millerschone. The Mustangs’ competitive spirit was alive and well; the volunteers often raced to see who could prepare a sandwich in the shortest time.
In the afternoon, Mustangs players Noah Robbins, Jeramiah Callan, Gavin Arians, Koltin Swaim, Thomas Zigler, and Luke Carpenter served capably as sandwich makers, battling rainy and windy conditions to serve the remaining customers from Paint the Town.
Thank you to all of the student volunteers who worked in various capacities on Saturday during Harvest Hammer and Paint the Town, including Harvest Hammer event registration, Color Run assistance, Paint the Town square numbering, Paint the Town sponsor logo painting, and Key Club/Kiwanis Club Sandwich Sales. Morrison’s community events could not take place without your involvement!
Congratulations to the Fresh/Soph girls volleyball team on their 2nd place finish at the Orion tournament today. Excellent job girls!!
