Education #50: Kiwanis International’s
official publication has appeared continuously since 1917. It was first
called “The Kiwanis Club.” Two other titles, “The Hornet” and “The Torch,”
were tried in 1918-20, but quickly abandoned for the simple descriptive
title “The Kiwanis Magazine.” In 1976, this was further abbreviated to
The magazine is received by every Kiwanis
member in the United States and Canada (except those in French-speaking
clubs in Canada), and by each Kiwanis club throughout the rest of the
This Week: For our meeting this week we motored down Hwy 31, to the
new Public Safety Complex. Guests were, Alyson Baird, Lt.
Governor-Designate of Division 17, and Stacy Eddy, speaker for the
meeting. No lottery going on today.
Jean is asking members to volunteer for committees and
projects for the coming year, so if you are not able to attend the
meetings but want to put your name on the committee list, please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org or call her (if you can catch her home) at 394-9734.
Advance orders for Pepper Festival shirts are
available. Please contact Mary or Gerry if you would like to order tee
Jim will be putting up the Kiwanis signs at the
entrances to town. The City has given permission for us to do this.
Remember to purchase your banquet tickets and be thinking
about a themed gift basket that you and a buddy could make up for the
silent auction. Let us know what you’re thinking of doing, so we can
share it in the bulletin. Rumor is that Carol Lagarde is making up a book
themed basket (mystery novels, mugs, tea bags, dark chocolate, warm wrap)
– now, are we surprised????? We’re doing things a bit different this
year, taking the theme from the District Convention. Make sure you plan
on participating. It will be a fun-filled evening!!!!!
Dennis LeBlanc introduced his guest speaker, Stacey Eddy, Emergency
Management Operational Services Supervisor, who talked to us and gave a
tour of the new Public Safety Complex located between Parks and Breaux
Bridge on Highway 31. This Complex is jointly sponsored by the St. Martin
Parish Sheriff’s Office, St. Martin Parish Government and the 911
Commission. In the near future, there will be an open house and the
general public will be able to visit this very important (and necessary
for our safety) facility.
Thanks to Alyson
Baird for making the long trek from Gray, Louisiana to be with us this
week. Alyson is our designated Lt. Governor for 2007-08 and will bring a
refreshingly youthful, yet vastly experienced presence to our Division.
She is organizing her first Division Council Meeting for September 29 at
her apartment. It will be a very informative and productive meeting which
will benefit all of us as Kiwanians. If you would like to make the trip
with us, please contact one of your officers for more information and
