 For those interested, we will go to New Beginnings immediately following our luncheon to the House of Faith. Kiwanis donated $5,000 towards this home. A plaque recognizing Kiwanis is displayed in the kitchen.  We will take a group picture for our FB page.

 Ken Collins has updated pictures on our website and added our new Corporate Members.  It looks really good, so take a look.
