Boys and Girls Club Dinner
The Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region has their Gala Celebration scheduled for Saturday, June 30th at Sacred Heart Hall in Laconia. The Kiwanis Club has sponsored a table of 8. Jim and Arlene Fortier and Joe Collie are on the list. Please join us and represent the club at this event. A good time, a good meal, a good cause. Please check your schedules and join us if you're able to. Thanks and congrats to Dianne Zawacki on her efforts at the Boys and Girls Club. Let President Joe Collie know if you plan on going. Thanks!

Speaker Schedule...
We have a visit from the Lt. Governor planned on Monday, June 11th. The next scheduled speaker is July 16th. Roger Landry reminds the club to schedule speakers with him to avoid double booking. Remember, we do not have speakers the first Monday of each month. See schedule at bottom of page.

Reading is FUNdamental...
Joe Adrignola reports the RIF distribution on Monday, June 4th was a big success. Thanks to Joe, Don Nelson, Kathy Calvin, Randy Brough, and Terry Fortson for their help at Woodland Heights. The final RIF distribution of the year is scheduled for Tuesday, June 5th and we'll have the update in next week's bulletin. Stay Tuned...and thanks again to all our readers/distributors! Hats off to Kathy Calvin for another successful year as RIF chairperson.

Key Club Update
Calise Houle reports that the Key Club held their first Cystic Fibrosis walk on May 19th in the rain. More than 100 people showed up and they raised $6,727! The club then donated the difference and donated $7,000 to the Cystic Fibrosis Society. Well done Key Club!

Roger that...
Roger Landry reminds the club that if we need any startup cash for Bike Week or need to drop off deposits after selling tickets, you can go to NAPA on Union Ave in Laconia and he will help you out. Paul Cotton left deposit slips there before leaving for NY. Roger also said that he will be ordering another batch of hats for those interested and reminded the club that if you want a Kiwanis shirt, the Piche's outlet in Belmont on Rt 3 (the old church) has our logo and will do some up for you should you stop in. They have numerous colors/styles.

The Hooksett Kiwanis Club is looking for players for their annual golf tournament. The event is scheduled for July 20 at Candia Woods and is $100 per person. If interested, please respond by July 6th. Chet Cilley has the flyer with the necessary information. Thanks.

Marty Hisrchberg Update
Roger Webster tells us Marty is in Casa Grande, which in Spanish means "The Big House" (insert correctional facility joke here), Arizona; and is doing just fine. Good news!

Dick Metz again stressed the importance of new members. It's all about helping kids, so let's spread the word and get some new faces in here. That will also make it easier for us to raise the money we need to to meet our community commitments. Help us all spread the word about Kiwanis. Next time you have the chance to ask someone to join...ask them!
