Kiwanis Update

Kathy Perry

We have been busy. We finished May with our Arts & Craft Show. It was a great success for all. We had 21 vendors, all from Robson Ranch. They had a nice return on their investment, most said they would be returning next year.

Martha and George Coleman gave us an informative speech about St. Jude’s. The board voted to give a donation to the St. Jude’s organization.

We worked at The Texas Motor Speedway on June 12 and 13. We are working on the eighth floor at The Speedway Club’s food and drink service.

Ladies Social-Victorian Tea at the Bayless-Selby House Museum in Denton was very well attended by the ladies of Kiwanis. This was a great way for Kiwanis women to socialize.

CASA, also known as Court Appointed Special Advocate, was our guest speaker for the June 18 meeting. Members were informed about the importance of CASA and the Children’s Program in the Denton Community.

Distribution of the Robson Ranch Source Book had several starts and stops, but we finally got the okay. The weather held and we delivered 2,400 books in three days with 30 members. Hope you enjoy yours.

For the July 4th Parade and Kiwanis Picnic, we had our 2019 and 2021 Kiwanians of the Year: Milt Glenn (2019) and Greg Laffey (2021). They rode in the parade in a Kiwanis-decorated Ford F-150 donated by Sherry Hansel and driven by her husband Steven.

Our Kiwanis picnic was a sell-out. We served 180 hot dogs and brats. Hope you and your family enjoyed our party under the big white tents. See ya next year.
