Social 7-13-14

Thanks to Noma Gurich and her husband, John Miley, for hosting a cordial, amusing, pleasing social at their home. The day before the party, John took Noma to the emergency room after an unexpected accident. John undoubtedly did much of the house prep work and still was an enthusiastic host. We appreciate you both!

Members brought potluck dishes, mostly homemade. No one left hungry! With the house well designed for entertaining, guests could mingle from room to room. Some, captivated by the golf tournament, stopped in front of the television for a few intense moments.

About forty-six members and guests attended. Those seen included the following.

Trey & Susan Bize

The most significant opportunity is to contribute to the Kiwanis Special Activity Fund (KSAF), "Building Fund" memo.

In order to present our grant proposals and fundraising letters, our club needs 100% participation in the KSAF Building Fund for our Carver Mark Twain Community Center. 

This is above and beyond our annual $400 KSAF donation, which supports all of our regular children’s activities.

Report your pledge or make your donation before August 1st.


Pay by the month or quarter. (Any of us can do this!)

Write one check.

Write a really big check – some of you can do that, too!

So far:

We have hired a highly respected professional grant writer.

A state-of-the-art video with animation, donated by Steve Slawson, will sell the project to others.

Time to step up a little higher for something that impacts our city and the Mulligan Flats/Westlawn Community.

  • 91st Children's Picnic & Outing


    Our club bought 140 tickets to Frontier City for young people and their house families and staff. 180 people were served at the picnic. 

    In addition to our own members and their spouses, Mary Cloos and members of Southeast High School Key Club took photos, served, and cleaned up. We are so proud of them.

    Thanks to all who came.

    Thanks to our club for continuing this project!
