We had a short business meeting on Thursday, July 14, followed by a bit of visiting and catching up with members. Belated happy birthday wishes go out to member Doris Liniger, proprietor of Highway House Cafe on July 18.
We are excited to learn that some of our activities have caught the eye of Kiwanis International! We have been contacted by KI concerning our Kiwanis Kids Day project, which is held in September at the city park. We filled out a survey about the event and are in the process of gathering pictures and news articles to send. It appears KI would like to put the event in their Project Database. Not bad for a small club in Ava, Mo.
We finally have flowers planted in our bed at the park thanks to Glenda, Diane, Connie and Denise who has volunteered to keep them watered.
Glenda and Donna attended Club Officer Training in Harrison, Ark., on Saturday, July 16. It’s always fun to get together with friends and meet some new friends as well as gain knowledge in how to be a better club officer. Added to that, our attendance counts for points toward our goal for Distinguished Club.
Thanks to member and “Facebook Manager” Rick Baker, Kiwanis Club of Ava has gone “high tech.” Kiwanis Club of Ava can now be found on Facebook. Just type “Ava Kiwanis” in the search box and become our friend. There, you’ll find information about Kiwanis International, and more specifically, our club, including upcoming events we have scheduled and contact information if you would like to know more. It is our hope to gain new contacts for our club and prospective members through this means.
