Diamond Anniversary
Pres. Phil Bonafide advises that Past Pres. Nancy Williams is working on the guest list for our 75th anniversary celebration and is considering extending and open invitation to the community to attend. Treas. Chet Cilley reports that sponsor ads for the supplement are "coming in." Members who volunteered to make specific contacts should do so soonest. Sr. Member Dick Breton read a newspaper clipping from 1955 announcing the formation of our dental program that Immediate Past Pres. Don Nelson unearthed from the Belknap Agency along with other Kiwanis artifacts.

We received a thank-you note from V.P. Larry Murphy for the card and flowers he received during his vacation at Lakes Region General Hospital.

Chet Cilley and Joe Collie dunned themselves for being tardy; and Randy Eifert for being pinless.
