The Kiwanis Club of Rome is peddling some of the world’s finest Georgia-grown pecans. They will arrive just in time for that pecan pie to be baked and enjoyed around the Thanksgiving table with family and friends. The cost is $12 per one-pound bag. The order deadline is Nov. 1 and the delivery is on or before Nov. 15. All proceeds go to fund the Kiwanis Club of Rome student scholarships. Last spring, the Kiwanis Club of Rome awarded $9,5000 in scholarships to local students. Details: Keith Mickler / email@example.com
