There were 16 members at our Monday meeting plus one guest, Sandy Smet. Bonnie and Pete were our greeters. Marlin did the grace for breakfast. Charlene had the humor. Happy bucks came from Dawn, Gary Miller, and Sandy Smet. We had an interclub to the Noon Club. They were Donna Miller, Gary Miller, Mark, Glen and Jackie. Special committee is looking for members – see Dawn. Dawn was the winner and non-winner of the drawing. She drew the Jack of Clubs. Bonnie announced that we are serving lunch for Habitat on May 6th and May 18th. We are landscaping for Habitat on July 18th. Remember that we have a Kiwanis web page and Facebook.

We need to be more organic in your gardening. This was the main theme of our speaker Sandy Smet. We need to plant Bee Bomb Plants, Sun Flowers, Petunias, Dogwood and Snap Dragons. Sandy says that we need to leave the dandelions in for the bees. The bee hives have a major enemy in the Varroa Mite. We need the bees for their pollination of trees, fruits and flowers.
