Win A Classic!
The Motorcycle remains at Meredith Harley with a FOR SALE sign on it. Asking price: $17,850 or best offer. Efforts will be made to advertise the bike this week. Stay tuned...and remember to join us next week, if possible, for a discussion on next year's fundraiser. Do we want to do another motorcycle? If not, then what do we want to do instead? If we do, then who is going to chair the raffle and is there anything we want to do differently this time around? Please be there for a discussion and vote at next week's meeting, August 6th.

Paul Cotton Update
Paul says THANKS for the "Superman" card we sent him last week. He says he doesn't feel much like Superman. In an e-mail to President Joe Collie, Paul said he feels more like --quote-- Lois Lane with PMS and that the kidney stone must be made of Kryptonite. Phil Bonafide says -- quote -- this, too shall pass. Paul gets his little problem taken care of this Wednesday and we wish him the best.

Hats off to Roger Landry...
Roger Landry has a few Kiwanis hats left if anyone is interested. The hats are $5 each and they are going fast. He started with 10..by meeting's end, he had half that amount. Get 'em while they're hot! Roger also reminded the club that anyone who needs shirts can have them printed at Piche's Print Shop on Rt. 3 near the Winnisquam Bridge. They already have the Kiwanis logo on hand...you'll just have to pick the color and design.

Roger Landry says "Otay, Buckwheat..."

Photo Ops Abound...
Want your picture in the paper? We have 2 big checks to deliver and this means photo ops for you! We need to present the library with our final installation to them, and we need to do the same for Lakes Region Day Care Center. Please coordinate with Joe Collie or Steve Loughlin (he'll take the picture) and a date and time and place will be arranged.

Remembering Berlin...
Warren Mitchell reports that the interclub trip to Berlin was great last week. On hand were: Warren, Jim Fortier, Ed Chertok, Jeff Stone, Dick Breton and friend, and Larry Murphy. Warren said the group played some Bocce Ball and had a fabulously cooked steak that was so tender, you could cut it with a plastic fork. Plans are already in the works for next year's trip.

Ozanam Place has scheduled a fund raising spaghetti supper for Wednesday, August 8th at Jeff Stone's place, The Stone House. Tickets are $25 and there will be a cash bar. Help support Ozanam Place by attending, and at the same time help support Jeff. The cash bar goes to him! Anyone interested in tickets can let Joe Collie know, or e-mail joe collie. They will have an auction that night and Red Sox tickets are on the block!

Who are you?
A friendly reminder from the Sargent at Arms: wear your nametag! 8 Kiwanians were without nametags at this week's meeting. We did not fine anyone this week, but will be enforcing this going forward. A fine of $1.00 will be assessed. If you need a nametag, please let Steve Loughlin know and he will make you one. Thanks.

Meet the Metz...Meet the Metz**
Roger Landry informs the club that Dick Metz would like to host the club at his house and give us the tour of the garages and collectibles. Stay tuned for a date. When we do go to Dick's, feel free to park at Roger's house and walk down. Roger said it was OK...I think.

The Late Phil Bonafide was fined a quarter. He blamed Paul Normandin for his tardiness.

Guest Speaker
Ginny Witkin from LRGH spoke to the club about mammography. Ginny coordinates LRGH's Women Health Network. She told us that New Hampshire has the one of the highest rate of breast cancer in the country, third behind only Washington and Oregon. She said early detection is the most important thing in fighting breast cancer and that a mammogram is the most effective way of detecting it. LRGH is in the process of trying to raise $800,000 for digital mammography at their 4 testing sites. Digital mammograms are betting at finding shapes and bumps on the breast and they offer a higher resolution image. Since 1990, breast cancer deaths in the US have steadily declined. Ginny Witkin said the goal of mammograms is not to find more cancer, but to find more survivors. LRGH performs about 4,000 a year at the Laconia location alone. The most recent figures show the 5-year survival rate for breast cancer is 97%.

Ginny Witkin keeps us "abreast" of the situation.
