On Nov. 16, the Salvation Army hosted a kickoff event for its “Red Kettle Campaign” in Salisbury. Annually the Kiwanis Club of Greater Ocean Pines-Ocean City members volunteer to ring the bell at the Walmart on Rt.50 in Berlin. At the kickoff, the club received the 2nd place award for a civic group for hours spent manning the kettle last year. Pictured are three Kiwanis Club members who attended the function.
