Members Journey Up to Wartburg for Inter-Club Visit

December 5, 2016 - One of the fun parts about having 6 clubs in the Cedar Valley is that we get to visit each other's meetings.  Monday morning, nine of our more adventurous members took a jaunt up to Waverly to join their club members for a 7:00 breakfast.  Interestingly enough, we were there long before the Waverly Club members but maybe that was because we are used to eating much earlier.

One of our motivations for this visit was to listen to Governor Jim Dane.  Governor Dane's main message was that we need expand our club membership. He shared that 40% of Nebraska-Iowa Kiwanis clubs have 25 or fewer members. He provided some suggestions as to how to build our membership.

Perhaps the best part of this visit was the opportunity to talk with fellow Kiwanians.  This is a busy club as they sell Christmas Trees, Ring Bells for The Salvation Army, and help the Waverly community.
