Due to Hurricane Ian, the Kiwanis One Day KidsFest has been postponed until January. In its place, we will host a Free Hurricane Ian Cleaning Supplies Distribution at Kiwanis Hall this Saturday (October 22nd) from 10:00 AM until Noon. We will be giving away mops, rakes, bleach, sanitary wipes, toilet paper and paper towels. We expect to help about 100 families. Jim Thompson is going to see if his son can clear out the fallen tree branches in front of the billing. Dilm,us Hogan will also see if his chain saw will do the job.
This is a new Kiwanis year, so we need to schedule and complete as many interclubs as we can. As soon as most clubs resume normal operations we will start working on scheduling as many intyerclubs as we can (our goal is one per month).
