We had 19 members at our Monday morning meeting at the Retlaw Hotel along with our guest speaker, Tiffany Heim from the Boys & Girls Club. Gary Miller is looking for an InterClub to Ripon Early Birds on Wednesday, August 12th. Check your calendar and let Gary know on Monday. “Happy Bucks” were offered by Mark Luttenberger as he is officially retired, Charlene Pettit in thanksgiving for some rain, Dawn Scannell for a successful Relay for Life Rummage Sale with Sharon K and finally, from our guest speaker Tiffany for her incoming presidency of the Noon Kiwanis Club. Dawn Scannell was the 50/50 Raffle drawing winner. Unfortunately she drew the Eight of Spades, which was a non-winner. Next week’s drawing will have 30 cards with five pay cards and a pot of at least $280.
Tiffany Heim, Boy & Girls Club
Tiffany Heim is the Director of Resource Development for the Boys & Girls Club and also a fellow Kiwanian from the Noon Club. Tiffany talked with us about the upcoming 2nd Annual “Spell for Great Futures”. Spell for Great Futures event is a themed, team spelling bee featuring local business leaders teamed up with their Club members as participants, includes action-packed audience participation, and is planned around a different and exciting theme each year. This year’s theme is based around the Jurassic Park/World series. This event raised over $17,000 in its first year in 2014 and they’re expecting bigger and better things at this year’s event on October 14th. Our Club was encouraged to not only consider a monetary donation but also consider having some of our members act as participating partners with the spelling teams. Gary Ring did it last year and had a lot of fun. He encouraged others to consider joining this effort for a great cause.
