John is this year's Florida Kiwanis Foundation Trustee for Division 19. He has to make a presentation to each club in our division and we want to support him by having some of our members attend whenerver he is the speaker. Each of these will then also count as an Interclub for our club. As he is scheduled at other clubs we will be asking one or two of our members to attend. He has alrerady spoken to the our club, Lehigh Acres and Metro-McGregor clubs. Interclub credits also are received for members attending Division Council meetings and we received credits for DCM's sponsored by Fort Myers and SanCarlos Park.
Harris announced that we would need to make some changes to our Reading Rocks for the coming school year. The number of titles from our source for free books has been greatly reduced meaning our costs will increase substantially. The club decided that we should cut back to just one school (North Fort Myers Academy forthe Arts) .
The Florida Kiwanis District Convention (DCon) will be held August 4th - 7th at the Naples Grande Beach Resort. Harris would like to see a good turnout of our members for this. We will discuss poSsible club financial support for attendance at our next meeting.
We cover a Meals On Wheels route every Tuesday. Harris covered it this past Tuesday.
John announced that he was going to Edison Kiwanis Hall following today's meeting to put the batteries in the ewxit signs. Once that is done he will contact the fire department for an inspection so we can get our Occupational License. Once that is done we can get the water turned on and the large metal Edison Kiwanis sign for the front of the building installed.
