Hello Everyone,

Our speaker tomorrow is Robert Miller-Municipal Judge.  Robert will speak about the different levels and functions of the Court and the history and principles of them.

Danielle Ramirez will be inducted tomorrow as a Bronze member with Innovation Medical Group.

Thank you to our speaker last week, Kenny Anderson.  He gave us a great history of the founder of Taco Bell and Taco Bell the company as well as the role his family played and how the locations in Farmington came to be.   We all found ourselves laughing at the great stories Kenny told and had a lot of compliments after. Taco Bell with the Anderson family do so much to give back to our community, with a strong focus on our children.  Kenny is also an Honorary Member of Kiwanis.

Also thank you to Perla Wahoske, Mrs. New Mexico America and Branch Manager at Washington Federal.  It was great to hear of her experience at the 2023 Mrs. America Pageant in Las Vegas this summer. Perla won Best Costume in the Contest!  We also loved your platform.

Thank you to our guests who joined us last week: Danielle with Innovation Medical Group, Ruby with Manchester Agency, Rocky and Brianna with Woods Insurance with Stephenie, and Nicole brought her better half, Judge Robert Miller.

We also inducted Lacey and Perla last week and welcome them to the Kiwanis Family!
