Motorcycle Raffle…
Stay tuned next week for an update on the bike. Things are happening now that are not for publication…there will be more information, one way or another, at next week’s meeting and subsequently in next week’s bulletin.

Kiwanis in Bloom…
Joe Adrignola reports that there are also things happening on the Corpse Flower front. Joe understands that the flower will in fact bloom sometime between August 24th and 27th. The initial plan…and this is all subject to town approval and timing, etc… is to show the bloom at a yet to be dermined location and to use the Gilford High School parking lot as a staging area. LRGH will be formulating a press release and contacting Channel 9. We will be working with Metrocast to set up a web cam and Lakes Region Public Access TV is scheduled to tape a session covering the information about what this bloom means and why it’s so special. We also plan to contact the University of New Hampshire and Dartmouth College. The next meeting on this is schedule for this Thursday, August 10th at LRGH at 10:30. If attending, meet Joe Adrignola in the lobby. Stay Tuned…

Installation 2007
The Installation dinner will be held on Monday,. October 2nd. All members and spouses are invited. We will also invite some past presidents and members. This may also be a good event to invite prospective members to. Further discussion coming soon to a Kiwanis meeting near you…
