On Sunday June the 11th, Jewel City Kiwanis helped Burbank Kiwanis with their fundraising activities in a Reseda Park for Los Angeles Cactus and Succulent Society Show and Sale.  Thanks God, it was a good day.  The weather was nice and there were a lot of people who came to join the show, buy plants and learn about drought tolerant plants.  I hope that there will be an activity like that in Glendale.
