BLUE LEVEL TODAY CLUB – Our Club has achieved Blue Level Today Club Status for the 2015-16 Kiwanis Year. This means that we were able to donate $10 per member to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund and we have earned a digital Blue Level Club Award to be displayed on our website.
THE NUTS ARE IN!! – Our delicious three pound cans of nuts are available again for $35.00 Please see Karen Gajewski.
AMAZONSMILE FOR GREATER PARSIPPANY FOUNDATION – Amazon.com will contribute .5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchase to our foundation. All you have to do is shop at smile.amazon.com. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know; same products, same prices, same service (and it works with amazon prime accounts) It’s that simple to add funds to our foundation!!! It’s super easy….
HOBOKEN HOMELESS SHELTER – Ronda’s grandson is collecting and bagging sample size or travel size toiletries for the Hoboken Homeless Shelter. This is for his Bar Mitzvah Project. If you would like to help, please bring what you have to Thursday morning’s meeting or contact Ronda directly.
NEW KIWANIS SHIRTS – We will start taking orders soon! Men’s sizes run larger than typical. Women’s sizes are more accurate as to size. They will have a Kiwanis logo embroidered on them for $25.00. If you’d like your name embroidered, add $5. Sizes up to XL are the same prices. XXL and above, add $4.00.
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 CLUBS – let 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.
