Quiz: President Taylor asked us to think about three questions: (a) What do Club members need to do? (b) What should members expect from the Club? (c) What is Kiwanis?



Member news: Warren Breitlow transferred to the Lutheran Home.



Interclub: We are planning to meet with the Waukesha club at noon on Thursday, April 26, at the Easter Seals Building, 505 Northview Road, to help celebrate the Waukesha club's ninetieth anniversary.



Golf: Kevin Dwyer is the team member coordinating the golf outing. The event will be June 27 at Broadlands. The price is $125 per person, or $25 just for the dinner. Right now we need hole sponsors (at $50 per hole) and silent auction items.
