Hello Everyone,

Our speaker tomorrow is Joan Hamblen Monninger, Executive Director of the Aztec Museum & Pioneer Village.  She will share updates, programs and concert details for their upcoming season, celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the museum & grounds. The museum’s anniversary theme is “What We Keep: Material Culture in Historic Preservation” and features a new special exhibit “Doors to the Past” honoring the area’s unique heritage.

For those placing lunch orders tomorrow, please send in your order as early as possible.  Alicia will be leaving town tomorrow morning and will send the orders to her cooks before she goes.

 Thank you so much to everyone that joins us when possible for our weekly meetings.  We love seeing all your faces and we are grateful to our speakers that take time to spend an hour with us;)

Congratulations to Ashley Socia who was approved by the Board for Membership!  We have enjoyed her support and glad to have her as part of the Kiwanis Family!

Thank you to our speakers last week, Fran and Steve Ellison and Jim and Barb Luther.  They took a trip to Japan last fall and we got to learn about several locations in Japan and their adventures.   Thank you so much for sharing!

Please join us this Saturday, April 20th at 1PM; we need your help numbering the ducks for the Riverfest Duck Race.  Please grab a friend or family member and come on down to 14 Road 5860 in Farmington and lend a hand.  See y’all there!

We also need some help selling duck tickets.  It is always a fun time to see who has the winning numbers.  1 ticket is $5 or a book that has 12 tickets is $50.  Please pickup your books and help Kiwanis raise money for all of our wonderful projects!;)

Also, please share on social media and tell friends and family.  We are currently collecting prizes for the winners so if you would like to donate a prize, please let Bernadette know and we are grateful for the support!

Club Elections are April 28. Currently, all positions have someone willing to serve in these capacities.  If anyone wants to consider including their name, please talk to Bernadette.  Those elected to these positions will take office Oct 1.
