That's a BIG K, Sir...
The Kiwanis International President will be making an appearance at the K-University presentation at the Wayfarer Conference Center in Bedford, NH on Saturday, May 20th. Any member interested in attending, see President Joe
Collie...but be advised that the event is the same day as our club's bike rodeo.
I'm Sorry...Who Are You Again?
Steve Loughlin reminds all that he is again making nametags and if you need one, let him know. Larry Murphy and Paul Cotton requested new tags and so did Kathy for Patty Jeanne. E-mail Steve any nametag request you may have at
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com Steve--please make me one that says "El Supremo." Thanks--Joe Collie
As The Drifters Once Sang..."On The Boardwalk..."
We're good to go on the boardwalk. Nancy Williams-Hunt attended a recent city council meeting and the council approved our usual vendor space on the boardwalk at Weirs Beach. Our permit runs from Memorial Day Weekend right through the end of Bike Week. Paul Cotton is following up with the necessary city paperwork and licensing.
Dianne Roberts informed the club that we are invited to the Community Health and Hospice Luncheon coming up on Monday, April 17th. It's an annual event they hold every year for their supporters. Anyone interested needs to RSVP by
this Friday, April 7th. E-mail Dianne at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or Joe Adrignola at firstname.lastname@example.org. The event will be held at the CH and H building on North Main Street in Laconia.
The minutes of the board meeting from March 6th were approved as read. The club approved an 8 week leave of absence for Mike Bastraw and the meeting adjourned at 7:17pm. Nothin' to it, really....

The 50/50 was won three ways by Roger Landry, Warren Mitchell, and Jeff Stone. They took home $19, but gave four happy dollars to simplify the math.
Cash brings a smile to everyone's face.

Roger Landry, Warren Mitchell, and Jeff Stone gave $4 for winning the 50/50 and Ed Merski gave a buck for being employed at the Lake View Golf Course, where he is also the assistant pro. Now, that's a hole-in-one!
More than half the women in attendance were fined. Nancy Williams-Hunt, Dianne Roberts, and Kathy Calvin were fined for being pinless. Sorry, Ladies.
