Project Updates:
Fundraising: VP Mike reminded everyone that they are to sell 10 raffle tickets each to help in our efforts.  If you haven't received your tickets yet, please give Mike a call.  Mike reports that we are $219 in the black right now with our raffle but we still have a portion of the Scooters to pay for so he figures we have around $400 to go before everything is paid for.  Special credit goes to Senior Member Paul Normandin because he has already sold 10.  Mike then led a discussion about alternate venues and strategies to sell raffle tickets.

Bike Rodeo: VP Mike then updated us regarding the Bike Rodeo.  He has worked with Kevin Dunleavy from the City of Laconia and it looks as though our best option is to have the Bike Rodeo on May 15th at Opechee Park.


Kiwanis KARES:
The next Kiwanis KARES event will be on April 15th at Pleasant Street. Please let Kathy Calvin know if you are interested in helping.

Free Meal: Roger Landry

Food Pantry Collected: $14

Happy Dollars:

$3 from Paul Normandin for winning

$1 from Roger Webster because law enforcement cleaned up his neighborhood down in Florida

$1 from Warren Mitchell because he tripped during his Easter egg hunt and found that he was still able to get up.

Warren Mitchell is happy because he DIDN'T have to say:
I've fallen and I can't get up.
