Sierra-Oakhurst Kiwanis Newsletter August 2017


Time passes quickly enough, and it does not seem like there is only 2 month to go on my Presidency term. It has been fun, lots of activity, some minor disappointments, and a great support group. I just returned from the California Nevada Hawaii convention in Reno/Sparks, and there was a great deal of information passed out there. I’ll try to get most of the important facts out at the meeting on Tuesday. At this time I would like to thank Harvey Left for covering for me over the last 2 weeks.

We still have coming up in my year the Run for the Gold Car show, a visit by the new CNH Governor Joni Ackerman and the First Dude for Richard Wayne’s de-install and my install on September 23, and our own Club installation of Bob Spinelli on September 28 at the Blue Heron Lounge in Yosemite Lakes Park. There were several ideas presented at the convention that the club could use as ideas for fundraising or recognition within the community, but it would require participation from more of the members to pull it off. To make it better for everyone, new members would let us try some of the ideas. That is one of the main reasons for bringing new members (blood) into the club. If you know of anyone who would be a good candidate for us, let some of the board know and we will follow up. Thanks, Joe BOARD NOTES Car Show – Keep those sponsors coming. Get your raffle items to Vicki. We need unusual bottles of beer for the beer bucket! Ed has posters, flyers and dinner tickets. Goody Bags need fillers – get your “give aways” to Ed.

Dori has tickets for the Golden Chain Dinner and Show fundraiser. $200.00 prepaid for a table of 8 or $30.00/ticket. Do we have a bell?????
