The list of committee assignments was passed around at this week’s meeting and it will be again next week. If you were on a committee this year, you can either stay on that committee, or remove yourself from it. You can also add your assistance to a different committee this year. The committee members and chairpersons need to be finalized before the Installation and the start of the next Kiwanis year.
