Christmas List ...it's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year…
Brian Winslow reminded the club that Kathy Calvin needs to be advised...as soon as possible... of the names of kids that will be attending the Kiwanis Children's Christimas Party, which is scheduled for Monday, December 8th. Kathy needs to purchase gifts well in advance of the party. Please return forms to Kathy as soon as possible. If you don't have a form, please contact Kathy this week if you plan on having a child attend. Please call (527-9182) or email Kathy Calvin ASAP with the necessary information on the child you plan to bring. Necessary information includes the following: Full Name of the Child, Boy or Girl, Age of Child, Hobbies or areas of interest of the child.
Adult Christmas Party
The Christmas Party for grownups will be held at Pheasant Ridge the following Monday, December 15th. A fun night of holiday cheer and a Yankee Swap is planned. Gifts should not exceed $10 as usual. Please plan on attending as this will be the last meeting before 2009.
Where we eatin’?
The club had a discussion about whether or not to eat at The Galley during the months that Pheasant Ridge will be closed. As reported in last week’s bulletin, the club would be charged $12.99 per meal. Right now, we pay $12 per meal. Roger Webster also mentioned Woodside at Taylor Community. He said that he spoke with the folks there this afternoon and will be gathering more information about that and hopes to have it for us next week. Brian Winslow said that he talked with Contigiani’s and there is an existing contract that included January and February at Joe Adrignola’s place at One Mill Plaza. Brian’s thought was that we stick it out this winter and revisit the idea of moving our winter meetings next year when we negotiate our contract for next year.
Past President Warren Mitchell told of the good time the interclub group had in Franklin last week. Warren, Kathy Calvin, and Paul Cotton accompanied Lt. Governor Joe Collie to Franklin. As reported in last week’s bulletin, the Franklin Club is very active with 2 efforts for Christmas time underway right now. They are doing a toy distribution with Santa the first weekend in December and providing gifts for Franklin residents that are in the area’s nursing homes. Their other community efforts include a rabies clinic and an auction that is held at the Franklin Opera House. Dan Phelps is the president of the Franklin Club and they meet at the Soda Shoppe. They have been invited to join us at one of our meetings in the future
