It's Official
Pres. Larry Murphy called our Annual Meeting to order in accordance with our Bylaws.

Win a Classic!
Chair Paul Cotton reports that Phil Bonafide and Michael Bastraw helped him sell raffle tickets at the Keene Swap Meet, Sunday last. He has made arrangements for what we will need once we move the roadshow to the Weirs Boardwalk. He would like us to start next year's raffle with an event in August.

The Drop-Ins
Macon Kiwanian Charlie Cloaninger told us that his club numbers 135 members and is the oldest of four clubs in the city. Two of their fundraisers are selling Vedalia onions and doing a silent auction. They meet on Tuesdays and support five keyclubs. He learned of our meeting from a roadside sign and was able to keep up his 24 years of perfect attendance. We are all invited to Macon, Georgia, and to attend one of their meetings.
