November 1st Meeting

Good evening, Mukilteo Kiwanis Team!

Thank you to all the club members and guests who woke up early this morning to attend our club meeting. By the way, great presentation by our guest speaker! However, he seemed to have had way too much caffeine this morning. His message: Share your Kiwanis with others to achieve ultimate club growth while retaining our current members to serve more kids and families in our community. YOU LOVE YOUR MUKILTEO KIWANIS!!!

Big thanks to the Lynnwood Kiwanis Club members who did an interclub with us this morning. Thank you, David, Billie, Steven, Sharon, and William! We promise to put together a team to join you at one of your Thursday morning meetings.

My biggest thanks to John Luckovich, George Holser, and Gary Webster for getting to the golf course early every Wednesday (except evening meetings) to set up for our meetings. John and George stay behind after every meeting to tear down. These guys are committed Kiwanians!! Thank you!!

Board meeting scheduled for next week Monday, Nov. 6th, at 7:30am at the Mukilteo YMCA. All members are welcome to attend.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES to Al Zugel-Nov. 2nd, Darbi Van Gerpen – Nov. 10th, Adrian Ramierz-Nov. 13th, John Luckovich-Nov. 16th, Tony McNulty-Nov. 18th, Kathy Valencia-Nov. 25th, Alefa Eserjose-Nov 26th, and Tim Taylor-Nov. 27th.
