Meeting Minutes from Prez Jim - 2/10/11

Business is picking up - we will be popping for Lincoln School - probably on the 25th at the Cattle Congress.

An application is being submitted for My Waterloo Days, this year it will be a four day event for us.

We will be filing an application to appear in the Sturgis Parade - thank you Jeff.

Thanks to an excellent program from representatives from Habitat we may have a project we can center around the Kiwanis One Day program.

We, again, had an excellent buffet breakfast. Our turn out was very good - especially considering the sub-zero weather and the program was excellent and informative.

Those working on Kettle Corn sponsorships need to be winding up their work. We will need to update our advertising so as to be ready for the popping season.

We wish Greg a Happy Birthday (9th) and a Happy Anniversary to the Wollum's (8th).

Next week's program will feature David Loy discussing everyone's favorite topic - taxes. Our greeter will be Marion Thompson.

Have your best week ever!
