Visit the Kiwanis for Cheese Curds at Walleye Weekend

Monday Morning

There were 16 members at our Monday meeting. Jackie and Sharon were our greeters. Steve had the humor. Happy bucks came from Dawn and Dan. John did the grace. Good news, Del was transferred from Milwaukee to Manor Care for rehab. He will probably be there for two weeks.  He likes visitors in the evening after his rehab is done. Gary is planning an interclub for June 14th at the Evening Club. Bonnie announced that we are landscaping for Habitat on July 18th. Harry was a winner and a winner of the drawing. He took home $187.50.  Remember that we have a Kiwanis web page and Facebook. If you are on Facebook, like our page.

Walleye Weekend Review

John and Harry reviewed all the rules and activities at Walleye Weekend. The beer will be Budweiser. The cheese will be fresh. Both the Band Boosters and Family Resource Center will have volunteers to help us.  The hours are 3 – 10 on Friday, Saturday 10-10 and Sunday 10-6. And don’t forget, we will have clean up on Monday morning in place of our regular meeting. We can use help until noon on Monday. We can always use extra help all weekend, especially Sunday. Stop by and enjoy some freshly fried cheese curds!

Kiwanians Busy Raising Funds to Help Our Community

As usual for this time of year, news is slow for the Kiwanis Club of Fabulous Fond du Lac as our weekly meetings are much less formal. However, that doesn’t mean the AM Kiwanis of Fond du Lac aren’t busy. Our annual Walleye Weekend fundraiser has consumed much of our time and our last two meetings in the beginning of June. Rather than talk about what we are doing right now, though; we would like to thank some people.

First, thank you to our service men and women who have sacrificed their schedules, health, and, in some cases, lives to defend our freedoms. As our country recently celebrated Memorial Day, we at Kiwanis were reminded of how much we have because of your sacrifice. Thank you for your willingness to serve.

Second, thank you to Danny Loomans who worked incredibly hard to raise funds and food for many who are less fortunate. Although you didn’t break the record, you inspired us all with your organization and dedication to an idea so much bigger than you. Thank you for your example and your hard work.

Third, thank you to the Fond du Lac community. Thanks for supporting us at our Walleye Weekend Fundraiser. None of the funds we raise or the things we accomplish could be done without your faithful support of our organization and others like ours. Thank you for giving of yourselves.

We will be back to regular meetings this coming Monday with a presentation from Mike Gneuech of Fondy Football. Why not stop in a see what Kiwanis is all about and give yourself to something bigger than you.
