Bike Rodeo Update
The annual Bike Rodeo has been set for Saturday, May 9th, at Levitt Park on Elm Street in Laconia. Mike Marsh is chairing the event. Mike gave an update to the club. He said that, so far, Piche's and MC Cycle have agreed to participate and provide bike techs for the safety inspections. Also, the bike shops are working up quotes for a bike to be given away as a raffle prize that day. Contagiani's hot dogs and soda will again be available that day and Kathleen Yale of the Laconia Police has been contacted. She was instrumental last year in spreading word of the event to the area school kids.

The event will run from 10am to 1pm and a sign-up sheet was passed around. Signed up so far: Brian Winslow, Joe Collie, Kathy Calvin, Phil Bonafide, Joe Adrignola, Dianne Roberts, Steve Loughlin, Warren Mitchell, Ron Penn, Mike Marsh, Roger and Pam Landry.

The sign-up sheet will continue to go around in the coming weeks. Please check your schedule and help us out on that day if you can. The Bike Rodeo is one of the most visible events the Laconia Kiwanis Club does in the community, so let's all get involved. Again, the Bike Rodeo is May 9th at Levitt Park on Elm Street in Laconia.


And the nominees are...
The Annual Meeting has been set for May 11th and the nominating committee will be meeting after next week's meeting. The committee consists of Joe Adrignola, who will chair, Joe Collie, Phil Bonafide, Paul Cotton, and Roger Landry. We are in need of a 2nd Vice President and members for the board to serve from October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2011. If you're interested, please let one of the members of the committee know...otherwise they may come seeking your consent to be nominated.

Nominees will be announced to the club on April 27th and the vote will be cast on May 11th.

Happy Dollars:
Russ Beane gave $2 to make the split easy. Russ also gave another because his son is getting married to a bank teller who he met through the glass -- his words, not mine. Roger Landry gave a happy dollar because his son returned from his 4th business trip to Saudi Arabia safe and sound.

Russ Beane is happy to have won the 50/50.

Russ Beane is also happy to be gaining a daughter in law.

We dug a little deeper and collected $38
