SPARTA, NJ – The volunteers of the Sparta Kiwanis were at it again.  Bright and early on Saturday morning they were planting the red, white and blue flowers along the walkway that connects the library to Main Street.

Special assistants Olivia and Lily Schwartz joined Jeff Mullen, Stuart Schwartz, John Krejci, Ralph D’Aires, Ben Caruso, Dimetri  Checker and Bob Mirabilio.

Each year members of Kiwanis plant flowers at the library, the monument at the base of the flag pole at Ungerman field and the monument in front of the Sparta VFW on Main Street.

The Kiwanis has a dinner meeting every Thursday at 7 p.m. at Homer’s Restaurant on Newton Sparta Road in Andover.
