This Association Is Helping Where It’s Needed

Monday Morning

There were 16 members at our Monday meeting plus one guest, Cassandra Higgins. Jim and John were our greeters. Jackie did the grace for breakfast. Steve had the humor. Happy bucks came from Bonnie and Gary Miller.  We had a partial interclub to the Noon Club. Pete and Gary Miller golfed at their annual golf outing. . Special Committee is looking for members – see Dawn.  Pete was the winner and non-winner of the drawing. He drew the King of Spades. Bonnie announced that we are landscaping for Habitat on July 18th.  Remember that we have a Kiwanis web page and Facebook. If you are on Facebook, like our page.
