Bike Rodeo
Roger Landry received a thank-you note from one of the Safety Day participants. "Dear Kiwanis Club, My friend talked to one of your members and got me a wicked cool helmet. Thank you for making the world a better place by making kids safe as they ride their bikes. I love my helmet. Thank you!! From, Ashley Cote, Laconia."

Opening the Camp
Pres. Larry Murphy reports he and several Key Club members helped open up Camp Mayhew for the summer. It took them three hours and he has a bit of a sore back to show for his hole-digging labors.

Win a Classic!
Chair Paul Cotton advises that we probably will not be on the Weirs Boardwalk Memorial Day weekend due to anticipated bad weather. The next roadshow would then be the Auto Show at Meadowbrook, Saturday, May 30. Thurston's Marine has agreed to let us use their parking lot during Motorcycle Week.
