Kiwanis Club Update June 15


Last updated 6/18/2020 at 11:48am

At the Friday, June 12 club meeting held at Leland Young's Barn, and on Zoom, we held our annual meeting, in which we approved the 2020-21 year slate of officers. Congratulations to all incoming officers.

Friday, June 17 meeting: We will be back at the Barn and on Zoom at 5:30pm next Friday. Same deal – light refreshments, BYOB.


• Please provide feedback on the Zoom and alternate meetings. We are all trying to fumble our way through this crazy year as best we can, but the club leadership needs to hear what is working for you. Do you like or hate the Zoom meetings? Do you love going to the Barn or not? Do you have a different idea that works better for you? This is your club so tell us what you need! You can reply to this email or get in touch with President Nick. You will not hurt anyone's feelings by saying you'd like to see something done differently. Would people be interested in doing a Pot Luck Supper (only works if people show up – looking at you, basically everyone!)?

• In the coming months, you will be hearing from time to time from me, as your President Elect about our mission in 2020-21: 52 Weeks of Service. President Nick Z.'s presidency is far from over, but we are planning for next year already. This is your first heads up that I am asking for your help in identifying service projects in Bartow, Polk County, and Central Florida, that you are already involved in and passionate about. Is your favorite charity hosting a 5K in December? Is there a blood drive in August? What good work is already being done that Kiwanis should know about, and what areas need attention? We've got a long calendar to fill, and I need your help to fill it, so please don't be shy. You will be hearing about this frequently, so I apologize in advance for the monotony. 52 Weeks of Service start fresh on October.
