The Big Easy
Lt. Gov. Ken Georgevits was at the International Convention in New Orleans with 10,000 other Kiwanians from 80 different countries. Ron Ito Torres from Manila will be our next President. He points out that the Kiwanis family numbers over 600,000 worldwide with 5500 in the House of Delegates. Topics considered including adopting an anti-terrorism policy (passed) and annual dues payment (failed due to lack of understanding!). The next International Convention will be in Indianapolis, June 20-24, 2003 which is only a day's drive from here. The next cons will be in St. Louis, Honolulu, and Rome. It should be kept in mind that we are part of an international organization and are encouraged to take credit for programs beyond our own club such as the I.D.D. campaign. His own club, Concord, will be sponsoring a car show on Saturday, September 2. And the next District Convention will be in Danvers, August 22-24.

Lt. Gov. Ken Georgevits is still jazzed after New Orleans.

Win a Classic?
by Pres. Phil Bonafide

With the 2002 raffle behind us, it's now time for the membership to decide whether or not the Club should commit to a Harley raffle for 2003. The discussion and vote will take place at the July 29 meeting. The decision whether or not to continue with a raffle must be a club decision based on a 2/3 vote of the members present. The raffle involves a large financial and time commitment for the Club and its entire membership. Whether you are for or against continuing the raffle for 2003, please attend the July 29 meeting and make your position known.

Old Home Day
Next week Roger Landry will have a sign-up sheet for our appearance at Gilford's Old Home Day in August. He received $100 from members last week to help defray expenses.

Warren Mitchell reminds everyone that the next interclub will be to Berlin on July 16 (raindate July 23). If someone brings a car, pooling may be available. Right now, 7 bikers are on board.

Steve Loughlin read thank-you notes from Josh Carroll and Jen Upham (attending Southern N.H. University, majoring in Business Administration) for our scholarship support. Dianne Roberts received a letter from Holly O'Shea, Woodland Heights School, for the helmets we donated to their health fair.

Plans for the overthrow of the male membership had to pause for a photo opportunity.

Right Off His Back
Sr. Member Roger Webster (who was gratified that Charlie St. Clair not only wore his K pin on his TV show but mentioned Kiwanis) offered a Kiwanis golf shirt to anyone it would fit. Dianne Roberts took him up on it.

July 4, 2002
Past Pres. Jim Fortier says everything is all set for the Independence Day celebration at Opechee Park. Roger Landry will pull our trailer in the parade and Joe Collie helped line up the musical entertainment. Charlie St. Clair will start the fireworks at 10p.

Roger Landry/Bob Turner/Warren Mitchell/Howard Bacon, $20.

Happy Dollars
The above winners donated the money to Gilford Old Home Day operations. Charlie St. Clair turned in another $100 in raffle ticket sales with Phil Bonafide chipping in a buck for the extra revenue.

Charlie St. Clair's get-away van may be a bit too high-profile.
