At its Dec. 17 meeting, the Nevada Kiwanis Club gave an award to Rhonda Maier of Nevada Parks and Rec. Maier was the first recipient of the Kiwanis Award in appreciation for service to the children of Nevada. After thanking the Kiwanis Club, Maier gave a brief synopsis of upcoming projects for Nevada Parks and Rec. The project she was most excited about, and has been working very hard on, is the beginning of youth swimming classes this summer. Thank you, Rhonda, for all that you do for the Youth of Nevada!
