Our Volunteer Groups
A Huge Thank You to all of our volunteers groups who help us keep S.M.I.L.E. beautiful!!
S.M.I.L.E. needed a little bit of help this last fall. A few of our evergreen trees died and needed to be removed. The Moring Kiwanis came out to cut down and removed the dead trees. After the old trees were gone, we replant them with new ones to add shade for our riders and beauty to the S.M.I.L.E. landscape.

The Madison Knights helped unload hay that was donated by a fellow knight.
