The Marshall Kiwanis Club held its regular meeting at noon Tuesday, August 9, at Montague’s house.
Club President Adam Reid opened the meeting with 19 members and four guests in attendance.
Brief discussions regarding the club’s concession stands at the Missouri Valley College Rodeo and High School Rodeo took place. These two very popular events will take place in September. A sign-up sheet will soon be available for members to take their shifts for these events.
Richard Raynor introduced his grandson. Jack Lenz introduced his guests: Superintendent of Schools Caleb Potet and Assistant Superintendent David Reinke. Beth Walker introduced her guest, Tim Freeman, who is affiliated with the Cancer Action Network. Freeman said the group’s primary goal is to fight cancer through increased education of the public, as well as those who personally deal with cancer. The Cancer Action Network began 21 years ago and has grown significantly as it works to increase funding from the federal, state and local levels. Cancer Action Network is not affiliated with any other national cancer organization. People in need of resources and information are encouraged to log on to fightcancer. org for useful information. The club gave Mr Freeman a standing ovation for his remarks. Mr Freeman said his young daughter asked him that morning what he was doing and told him to “do a really good job and people would like it”. The meeting was then adjourned with Adam Reid winning the $10 pot.
The next Kiwanis meeting will be on August 16.
