David Booker, filling in for Senior Services Chair Joe Trupia, outlined the activities of this committee. Kiwanis’ purpose is to serve the children of the world, but we also serve the seniors! Some of the projects we have done for the residents of Brookside Park are erecting a flag pole, (just recently an all night light has been provided for it by another donor), purchasing bridge tables, providing Medicare Part D counseling, assisted residents with packing/unpacking, moving in/out during renovations to the apartments, and providing a computer for their use in the Community Room. The Club will serve a Valentine’s Day Luncheon at the Sand Lake Seniors’ regular meeting at the Church of the Covenant on Thursday, February 11th, and Eve Ward will be providing a St Patrick’s Day Holiday Luncheon at the Brookside Community Room on March 17th.
$ Pat Lane: Eve and I saw the show Cinderella at Proctor’s, and it was wonderful! I also attended the Hoosick Falls Club’s Baby Shower last week, where they collected lots of newborn sized clothes. This is our Governor’s First Lady’s major project, and each club should participate. Too many infants go home from the hospital in old or used clothes.
$ Skip Patton: Once again this weekend I had a great day cross country skiing in Vermont, and also had another pleasant visit to the Brew Pub in Bennington!
$ John Mulligan: I finally got some Key Club people to come to our meeting!
$ Joe Grillo: Some good friends (kiwanians) visited, and removed a 55 foot tree which was leaning on the house!
$ Jean Hamlin: Thanks for being so nice to me up here, and overlooking my mistakes!
Once again, we were 1 member short eating dinner, so a takeouts was sold to Peg.
DOOR PRIZE, provided by David, was won by Veronica Gaboury!
50/50 for $17 was won by Pat Lane!
PROGRESSIVE 50/50, worth $161.50 tonight, provided some excitement when John Brownrigg picked the King of Spades from the 46 remaining cards. It was a king, and it was a black king, but it wasn’t the King of CLUBS, so the pot will grow some more!
