Kiwanis to Lampoon Jackson Hole Issues

November 2, 2012 Jackson Hole, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Kiwanis

It has become a 30-year tradition now where no local issue or public figure is sacred as the Jackson Hole Kiwanis Club pokes fun at the community’s political life raising money in the process for the many projects the club benefits.  Long-time club member David Auge says the actors have their own wacky solutions to a variety of the town and county’s problems including trash transfer, a long incomplete construction project, and other topics that have made headlines this year.  Among the beneficiaries of Kiwanis fundraising are a scholarship, the Teton Youth and Family Services, the Santa Claus Fund, Special Olympics, Jackson Hole Community Counseling Center, and the Van Vleck House to name just a few.  Auge says children’s issues top the club’s activities including a pediatric room at St. John’s Medical Center to provide a place for parents to stay when they are there for some serious illnesses. Auge says tickets for the very popular show are available at the door both Friday and Saturday Night at $20 apiece.  Popcorn and sodas are complimentary, and tickets for multiple drawings for donated prizes are sold to members of the audience.  Doors at the Teton County Fair Buidling open for the event at 6:00 pm each night.
