Upcoming Events/ Fundraisers

May 18th- 9am-3pm Rummage Sale – We are going to be working on a fundraising event for the club. This will be a rummage sale, inviting the public to buy a space along with donations from our members to sell. So start looking around your house for items that you want to get rid of! We need volunteers to help put this together. Please contact me if you are interested. 

Extra Mile Award- due by June 15th– Bob Nelson sent us the info on the Extra Mile Award. I can think of several of our members that should be recognized.  There are many Kiwanis members who put in many hours helping out their community without any or much recognition. The Past Lt. Governors Council would like to recognize one of these hardworking individuals who goes the extra mile to enhance the principles of SERVICE here in the Michigan District. The information brochure is attached below. 

June 29th- 12-6pm. Turner-Dodge House and Heritage Center will become a Fairy Kingdom once again this year! Featuring fairytale characters, arts & crafts, music, dance and children’s activities, Fairytale Festival is an event for the whole family. We are sponsoring a table and have been invited to hand out books. Typically 500+ children attend. More info to come. Costume is required! (Just kidding)

July- International Convention in Denver- Two delegates and two alternates are needed. Scott Greenlee and Terry Strickland have volunteered. More info to come.
