Meeting of January 22nd

Happy Anniversary to Kiwanis.  On Jan 21, 1915 Club #1 was charted in Detroit Michigan.  In honor of this celebration the Senator made an anniversary cake for desert.  This is the cake before we cut it.  Apparently it’s true….you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

Dr. Alice Savage announced we have been named a “Legacy Club” for hitting our pledge goal of 60-Thousand-Dollars to the eliminate project early.  To date only two clubs in New England have attained that status.  She wanted to thank each and every club member for their donations.
