We had a great turnout at Monday’s Annual Meeting with 22 members. “Happy Bucks” were offered by Del Waldschmidt for a Brewer win on Sunday and Jan Krug for her husband’s birthday, although Del had to put the $1 in. Pete Vercouteren reported that the three local Kiwanis Clubs are designating the Food For Freedom Drive as our Kiwanis One Project. They’ll be looking for volunteer supervisors for four hour shifts and volunteer fork lift operators for two hour shifts. More details to follow. Marlin noted that the FDL Fire Department is sponsoring a Brat Fry on Friday, April 26th to benefit the local Red Cross Chapter. The Brat Fry will be at the South Main Street station if you’re interested. Dave Lefeber was the 50/50 Raffle winner and he drew the Six of Clubs, still not a winner. The next raffle drawing on April 29th will have 26 cards, eight pay cards and a pot of at least $343.
Marlin Towne, President, called the Annual Meeting of the Kiwanis of Fabulous Fond du Lac to order. The first order of business was the election of Officers and Directors for the 2013-14 Administrative Year. There were no nominations from the floor so the published slate of Officers and Directors were voted on by the membership. The results of that vote were sealed until the Club Satellite votes on the same slate at their Thursday meeting. The second order of business was the adoption of the revised bylaws for our Club to bring us into compliance with Kiwanis International’s recently released model by-laws. Copies of the revised by-laws were sent to the membership two weeks in advance of the Annual Meeting. After a brief presentation and discussion the proposed by-laws were approved by a unanimous vote. A request was brought to the membership to use the Club’s grill assets for two non-profit group’s fundraisers. After a brief discussion it was approved to allow the use of the two charcoal grills that are no longer used by the Club. The grills will need to be picked up and returned to our storage location by the groups using them with their own trailers.
