Hello Fellow Kiwanians,
I hope all of you had a very relaxing and enjoyable Memorial Day. I went down to Wrightsville Beach for the weekend, only to run into Steve Hantzmon at the same hotel! What a small world we live in.
Monday, June 3rd, our meeting will be at the Durham Bulls Game at 1:05 pm. We will NOT have a lunch at TROSA. If you don’t have a ticket, please contact Haywood Davis. ( C21HDavis@aol.com) He had several left.
Our next scheduled meeting will be Monday, June 17th at TROSA. Margie is scheduling the speaker. I will remind you again before the meeting.
June 19th is our big Service Project at the Durham Rescue Mission. Patty Gentry has been working very hard on coordinating this event. If you have any questions for Patty concerning this event, please contact Patty (PattyG@umrh.org) I look forward to seeing you all next week!!

I’m looking forward to a great picnic tomorrow night! It’s going to fun!
What about the rain, you say? No problem as we are setting up inside, and we will expand to the back deck when it’s not actually raining. If you have not seen my back yard, you are in for a treat! It’s prettier than the front! And the deck is large.
Haywood is grilling his famous burgers and dogs. People are bringing all kinds of yummy side dishes and desserts. We won’t have the field games, so we’ll just have to chat up a storm for entertainment.
5pm — Monday Night

Look for the white mailbox with yellow fish on it.
Hillsborough Kiwanis is having a fundraiser to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. An evening of Bluegrass and a silent auction. It’s the Saturday before our club picnic (May 18th). I’m thinking of going just to meet a woman brave enough to play a bull fiddle!
Tobaccoland Kiwanis is moving quickly these days; don’t blink!!! Three upcoming events in the next six weeks.
- Our Spring Picnic – at Margie’s house on Mon, May 20th at 5pm. We’ll have hamburgers and hotdogs. We ask that you bring a potluck side or dessert if you can. Don’t feel up to cooking? A bag of Oreo cookies or some BoJangles biscuits would be great! Also bring camp chairs if you have them.
- Durham Bulls Meeting – just to mix things up, we are having our June 3rd meeting at the Durham Bulls instead of TROSA. We’ll enjoy the game from shaded seats in the reserve section. Barbara Baker has organized this great outing — see her for tickets. Members first, then leftover tickets will be available for friends and family.
- Field Day at the Rescue Mission – another great service project coming up June 19th. We’re going to play with the kids on the Kiwanis playground. Patty Gentry has it all organized with food, drink and games. We just need your help to add the laughter. Save the date!
