The Lodge Update…
We have been to The Lodge for 7 of our 10 charity nights. At press time, an update is not available for the past week. The Lodge was closed today when we called…but last weekend we had made more than $2,200, so you can add whatever we made this past week to that. We have three nights (Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday) to go and we will have an update next week as to our we made out on these charity nights. Thanks to all who have helped out with getting the papers signed and the money collected.

Kiwanis KARES…
This morning at Elm Street School, there was a KARES distribution with Don Nelson, Joe Adrignola, and Brian Winslow. Also on hand were Randy Brough from the Laconia Public Library and Colleen Danforth from the Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region. The theme was science and the group had a good time. Books included a book about penguins and a book about turtles. The kids and the readers enjoyed ice cream as a snack.


In the penalty box…
Join Kiwanis at the Manchester Monarchs Kiwanis night at the Verizon Wireless Arena, Saturday, February 21st at 7:00 against the Lowell Devils. Tickets for the hockey game will be specially priced for Kiwanis members and their families. Get yours today for only $13 each and $2.50 from each ticket will come back to the Kiwanis Club.
