President's Column


Dear Kiwanian,   


Think about the people you know:   Friends, relatives, members of a church or other volunteer organizations, neighbors, clients, business associates, and former business associates.

Now think about our Kiwanis Club, along with its mission and activities.   Maybe some of the people you know fit our club.   And maybe some of those people would benefit by bringing their unique abilities to the club. 

You have the power to make our club stronger by recruiting the people you know.  Please do our club a favor by spending five minutes each week to think of someone who might fit.  And then ask that person to a Friday meeting, a volunteer activity, or a social activity.  Someone may thank you for it.

YCPO Spotlight
Karen Smolinski from Holy Name School was also with us last Friday to share with us about the success their school has had in improving reading scores using table computers. They purchased new tablet computers for their resource room with the money they were granted last year with the 2014 YCPO grants. Ms. Smolinski was extremely grateful to our club.
