PRESIDENT’S CORNER – We are now into February and events are starting to “blossom”. Yes, we are ready to “spring” into action on events. We have our speaker series at our regular meetings and on Feb. 20th we have our GUEST DAY at the meeting. Bring a friend or neighbor, who might be interested in joining Kiwanis. On March 17th we have our BINGO fundraiser so be prepared to help make this a success. Tickets are available; see Vicki. We are in need of raffle prizes for this event; check with Vicki. And on March 31st we are combining efforts with the Park Committee to do an Easter Egg Hunt for our “kids” in the Park.

On March 6th, our next business meeting, we will be doing Youth Protection Training. This refresher course will be most of our 1 hour meeting. Please plan to attend. All members should be trained on this program.
