Eliminate Project Update Presented to Kiwanis

Monday Morning
We had 22 members and two guests at our Monday meeting at our temporary location at Trinity Baptist Church. Joining us on Monday morning were Jackson Goldapske and our speaker, Steve Heinsen, from Kiwanis International. Gary Miller reported on the District Convention this past weekend attended by Gary & Donna Miller, Charlene Pettit, Gary & Lois Ring and Chris Serres. Happy Bucks were donated by Gary Ring for the District Convention, Mark Luttenberger for his recent vacation, his and Gail’s 59th birthdates and also their 38th year wedding anniversary, and Harry Schneider for his winning a portion of the third place prize at the recent Agnesian Hospice Golf Outing. Bob Kahl circulated a Thank You from his daughter, Joelle, for our sponsorship of their Relay for Life Team. Dave Lefeber was the 50/50 Raffle Winner (again and again) and he drew the Ace of Spades, not a winner (again). The next drawing will have 11 cards, four pay cards and a pot of at least $542.

Steve Heinsen, Kiwanis International
Steve Heinsen is the Kiwanis International Campaign Area Director for the Eliminate Project. He was in Racine this past weekend for the District Convention and agreed to be our program on Monday morning on his way to Manitowoc. Steve gave a brief background on the Eliminate Project and Kiwanis International’s efforts to eliminate Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus in many third world countries. Steve also talked about his personal observations during a recent trip to Cambodia as part of a joint Kiwanis/UNICEF delegation.
