Leadership Training...
President Dianne let the club know of the next Kiwanis Leadership Training Session. It is scheduled as part of the district convention in North Conway and a good thing to do if you are on the board or one of the club's officers. This session will be held in North Conway on November 16, 17, and 18. The leadership training session is on Sunday, November 18th and should you be interested in attending, please let Dianne know. She has all the paperwork. The club will reimburse your expenses.

Welcome Aboard...
Denise Dow will be joining as a club member next week. Denise has been to the the last couple of meetings and her membership has been approved by the board. She will officially be sworn into Laconia Kiwanis next week.
