WANT TO GET INVOLVED?Our Club has so many projects:  Homeless Solutions (Steve Dickens), Frank Sinatra night, Trivia Night (Susan & Greg Elbin), and the Golf Outing (Karen Gajewski) to name  a few things coming up where you can volunteer your time and talents.   You can always feel free to speak to the person in charge of the event to volunteer and get involved.   We want you to get involved in the things that get you excited!   President Greg is also looking for opportunities for new fundraisers, if you have an idea – talk to him.

SPONSORED YOUTH CLUBSlet us know what you’re doing, so we can spread the good news about you too

THOUGHT OF THE DAY/REGISTRATION TABLE/SET UP –  Just a gentle reminder, when you have the thought of the day, we would like to you  help at the registration desk by collecting the $10.00 breakfast fee, taking attendance, and setting up the raffle for that day.   Directions for these tasks have been written up and are available with the registration table materials.  If you get to the meeting early and want to help out by setting up for the meetings, please put up the American flag and the Kiwanis Club banner only. The podium, bell, and gavel should go on the center table; and the registration table needs the tickets and attendance sheet as well as the instruction sheet.   We currently do not have one person assigned to do this, so any help you can provide for set up and break down would be appreciated.

GUESTS TO BREAKFAST MEETINGS  – If you have invited someone to come to one of our breakfast meetings, please Bob Keller or Ronda Kron know.   They will make sure our guests feel welcome and are greeted and get breakfast.
