Another thank you came from the Salvation Army formally thanking us for the bell ringing we did at Christmas time. The third came from the Boys and Girls Club for our annual support of their programs.

Happy Dollars:
Kathy Calvin had a happy dollar for winning the 50/50. Steve Loughlin gave a happy dollar for Nancy Williams-Hunt helping him with new nametags and the second one was because Peter Karagianis was back at Kiwanis. Russ Beane gave $5 because his funeral home had merged with Simoneau Paquette, forming the Wilkinson-Beane Simoneau Paquette Funeral Home & Cremation Services. It’s the longest name of any funeral home in the Green Book.
