Talk about a trickledown effect – The Kiwanis club of Bellevue makes an annual trek to Carlton Washington and spends the weekend harvesting walnuts donated by the Brown Bear Lodge and the Brown family. Club president Al Shot “We donate the majority of the finished walnuts to our Key Clubs. They will sell them to family and friends with the proceeds helping with their respective club expenses … mostly attending the annual DCON conference”.
The club supports International, Interlake, Newport and Bellevue high school Key Clubs, which last year’s sales helped with sending 146 students to 2016 DCON.
The nuts are hand packed by the club and will be available in mid-November – just in time for a favorite meal, hostess gift or office party. They are said to be the absolute sweetest tasting walnuts EVER since they grow in the elevation of Carlton WA … just like the delicious apples from there!
