We had 21 members, our guest speaker, Rick Gudex, and two Noon Kiwanians, Don Kurki and Dick Taddy at our second Monday meeting at our new location at Main Street Lounge & Café. Bonnie Baerwald thanked John Cooper, Donna & Gary Miller, Ron & Joan Seidl and Marlin Towne for helping her out with breakfast for the walkers at last Saturday’s “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” at MPTC. Marlin Towne asked any and all members with Pork Fest money still out to please get it in ASAP so we can wrap up the final accounting for this event. Gary Miller is trying to pull together an InterClub to Kewaskum next Monday evening, (10/15). Their meeting is held upstairs at Woody’s Restaurant with fellowship at 5:30PM and dinner and the meeting starting at 6:00PM. Check your calendar and sign up to attend at Monday’s meeting. Glen Treml was the 50/50 Raffle winner and he drew the Three of Diamonds, not a winner. Next week’s drawing will have 51 cards with nine pay cards and a pot of at least $25.
Rick Gudex, State Senatorial Candidate
Rick Gudex is the current FDL City Council President and is also running for the 18th Senate District seat in the November elections. Rick’s presentation is best summed up from his introduction on his campaign website: “It is my mission to restore unity and strength among Republicans and represent all citizens throughout the 18th District. Faith, family, and conservative values are strong characteristics that lie at my core. I firmly believe that the path to a better Wisconsin starts at home. I do not advocate government dictating our lives. However, I do believe government should be there to help people help themselves. And the best way government can do that is by advocating and fostering an environment in which business will grow and create jobs giving citizens the opportunity to better themselves and their families. The people of Wisconsin are proud and resilient people. I ask for the chance to represent you in the State Capitol!”
Rick is a Production Manager at Brenner Tank and had to leave our meeting early to do a new employee orientation. He was proud to note that Brenner has added over 100 jobs during this past year.
