Chelsea Kiwanis selling gourmet nuts at Chelsea Farmers Market

Pumpkins that were delivered by Chelsea Kiwanis to children at Mott’s Children’s Hospital.

(Chelsea Update would like to thank Bob Milbrodt for the information in this story.)

Last week, Chelsea Kiwanis Club Member Joe Scheuring delivered small pumpkins to the children receiving treatment at Mott’s Children’s Hospital.

The young patients there decorate them during their stay at the hospital. We have provided pumpkins for many years, but our association with Mott Hospital goes back to 1922. Each year since then, Kiwanis Clubs have donated funds to employ a teacher for the children while hospitalized. Many kids have to spend considerable time there and would otherwise miss out on school.

The club’s Mixed Nut and Chocolate Sale continues. We appreciate the support from community members and businesses as we work toward making up for the loss of our largest fundraiser this summer. We will be at the last three farmer’s markets, Nov. 4, 7, and 14 with mixed nuts and chocolates to pick up.

The 2.25-pound cans of nuts include cashews, almonds, pecans, Brazils, and pistachios (no peanuts). The 2-pound tin of candies includes dark chocolate covered almonds and pretzels, milk chocolate cashews and raisins, double-dipped chocolate peanuts, peanut butter pretzels, and milk chocolate toffee peanuts.

The price is $25 per can for either product.

To order, visit our Facebook page to “send message” with your contact information and order: or ask any local Kiwanian. Or, call John Knox at 248-921-9222 or Jim Randolph at 734-474-9012.

Thanks in advance for your continuing support of Chelsea Kiwanis and by extension, the entire Chelsea area community. 

Normally, Chelsea Kiwanis meets each Monday at 6:15 p.m. in the St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital cafeteria, and the speakers begin at about 6:45 p.m.
