Proud of their work: The Kiwanis Club of the Helderbergs met in Mike Hammond’s workshop in Knox on Tuesday morning to build bluebird houses, which will be sold for $12 each to raise funds for Kiwanis projects that support local youth.

The Eastern Bluebird is New York’s state bird; providing houses helps the once-threatened thrush species thrive.
