Just a reminder that the soaps and shampoos you pick up while traveling can be donated to our Itty Bitty Soap Committee, which will pass the items on to folks who can use them at local shelters. Just drop your donations off at the badge table during regular Club meetings. The committee will take care of the distribution.
Founded by Club member Bill Dale many years ago, the committee is now headed by "Suds" (R.C. Mead) and "Sparkle" (Claire Snyder).  Want to help? Contact one of them.

This year's discussion topics include:
Waning of Pax Americana?
Russia's Foreign Policy
China's Geopolitics
Media and Foreign Policy

South Africa's Fragile Democracy
Global Health Issues
Materials are paid for by the Club and are free to the participants. (As of noon, Thursday, January 18, there were 2 books still available.)
This forum has been sponsored by our Club for years and often provokes some spirited discussion.
All eight of the discussion sessions are scheduled for Tuesday mornings at 7:00 am, at the Radisson, beginning Tuesday, February 13 and each week thereafter.
Contact Wayne Herr or our Administrative Secretary John Barnes soon to sign up. The number of participants is limited by the number of books available. 
Kiwanians were out ringing bells for the Salvation Army at a number of locations throughout the city on Saturday, December 16th. This is an annual activity, one that has been a tradition for many years.
 The party was held December 17th at the Radisson. Eats, crafts and Santa were enjoyed by kids and grandkids.
The Cheyenne Kiwanis Club Foundation has been working to support construction of an accessible playground for all ages and abilities at Cheyenne's Cahill Park for three years now. Our Club's past President, Patty Benskin, has identified support of the project a priority for the Club as well.  
Every little bit helps in getting this much needed facility built in Cheyenne.  And, if you can, consider a gift of $500 or more for recognition as a playground fellow. Thanks for your support.
For those who have already pledged financial support, please fulfill that pledge soonest.

Craig Hiett of AAMCO Transmission/Meineke Mufflers has started a Customer Loyalty Program for Kiwanis Club members.  A percentage of each Kiwanis Club member's auto repair bill will be returned to the Club's Foundation.  John Barnes has Customer Loyalty Program cards which you may pick up and use or you may just stop into either shop and mention your Kiwanis membership.  Please consider picking up a card today.
