Katelyne announced today as the Membership Drive Day. Each member is challenged to recruit a new member by June 1st. Katelyne’s goal is for the club to be innovative and grow. One of the biggest accomplishments each year is planning Corn Day. The Kiwanis want to keep an active growing membership that will be able to continue the tradition. They currently have 72 members and the average age is 59.
Dr. Clint Taylor talked about how he is proud that Kiwanis Club does a lot for the community. Interesting programs are a goal to keep attendance high and encourage people to join the club.
Jim Davis recalled being a speaker and then deciding to join the club afterwards. He enjoyed the greeters that once welcomed everyone to the meeting.
Matt Lamont reminded the members that there are nearby towns without Kiwanis clubs. There may be potential members from other clubs that would enjoy being invited to a meeting.
Brian Watts, an engineer for Continental Tire, will be the speaker next week.
Katelyne ended the meeting with the quote, “If you want something, go get it!”
Anyone interested in attending a Kiwanis meeting is welcome to join the group on Thursday at noon in the basement of the Farm Bureau building.
