Reading in FUNdamental:
Kathy Calvin gave us the latest RIF update: There was a distribution last week at Woodland Heights. On hand for the fun were Joe Adrignola, Don and Sue Nelson, Kathy Calvin, and Larry Murphy. Joe Adrignola played the part of Dr. Seuss. Please note that the next RIF, which was scheduled for this Wednesday the 12th, has been rescheduled for Wednesday March 26th at Pleasant Street School at 1:30. Don Nelson is not available that day. Signed up so far are Kathy Calvin and Joe Adrignola. A sign up sheet will be circulated next week.


Hey Kiwanis...THANKS!
We received a great number of baseball themed thank you cards from Woodland Heights for the first RIF distribution back in the fall. The theme that day was the Red Sox, who were making their World Series run at the time. Kathy Calvin pointed out that one of the cards read "TANK you very much." Kids say the darndest things...

Bike Rodeo
It's that time of year again. Chet Cilley informed the club that he has had discussions with Officer Kathleen Yale at the Laconia Police Department and the Bike Rodeo has been set for May 10th. It is the wish of all involved to formulate a plan to get into the schools the week before and let all the kids know that the event is happening so that we can increase awareness and participation. At this point, the location and the rest of the details need to be ironed out, but the date will be May 10th. Stay Tuned!

Where's Charlie?
Dick Breton reports that while in Daytona he made several attempts to see Charlie St. Clair. Dick says that, each time had had checked in at the booth, Charlie was "working." Dick was told "you just missed him."

Roger Landry was pinless...and honest.

Happy Dollars:
Roger Landry gave $2 for Pam coming to dinner with him. Denise Dow gave $2 for finally getting some planned renovations started around her house. Joe Collie gave $1 in honor of his Dad's 55th birthday. That brought many moans and groans from the "over 55" crowd. By the way..Joe's mom will be 53 in October (insert more moans and groans here) In all, $5 was collected.

Guest Speaker:
Jim Cande, former radio man and current General Manager of Castle in the Clouds in Moultonboro, spoke to the club about the Laconia Nationals car show, something he started as a cruise night event when he was managing WLKZ. He said in 4 years the event has grown to more than 800-900 cars and has earned recognition at the World of Wheels show in Boston. Attendance last year was in the neighborhood of 3,000 people. Jim spoke to the club about possible fund raising efforts that Kiwanis could get involved with in conjunction with the show. Roger Landry put forth the idea of selling ads in the program booklet for a percentage of the sale and also selling raffle tickets for whatever we decide to do as our major fund raiser at the show, which is scheduled for Gunstock this Memorial Day weekend. More discussion to follow. The Laconia Nationals show is May 23rd through the 25th.
