Lauri Osborne, our current Serving Line Chairperson, is looking for a co-chair, someone who will learn the ropes and take over. As is the case with all pancake breakfast committees, the show runs pretty much on automatic pilot, with only a few tweaks here and there to help keep things on track.
 
Steve Schmerge is looking for help with his Coffee Committee. Qualifications include strength and relative youth, since the brewed coffee is served in 12-gallon containers and the "old guys" on the committee would like to be relieved of backaches.
 
Rob Killian is asking for help with flipping pancakes.
 
Just a reminder that the breakfasts are an "all hands on deck" event for the Cheyenne Kiwanis Club. Whether you can help out for a day or two or all three days, every little bit helps ensure the success of the event. Call Brian if you are not sure where you can be of assistance.
The Rocky Mountain District of Kiwanis annual convention will be held in Cheyenne this year, from Aug 3 through 6, at the Little America Hotel.
 
This is a great opportunity to see what a convention is like, to meet new people and get ideas for incorporation in our own Club's operations.  Since it is being held in Cheyenne, you don't have to travel. No motel bill to pay (although our Club helps defray the costs of attendance at district conventions). You get to sleep in your own bed each night. You can select your own participation based on the time you have available and your own interests.
 
The preliminary schedule and registration may be found at http://rmdkiwanis.com .
 
If nothing else, seriously consider attending the interclub luncheon on Saturday at noon. Highlights include a distinguished guest speaker, a roll call of attending clubs, and comments from District leadership, as well as fellowship with members of other clubs in the District. This will also be a great time to make a lot of noise and encourage our candidate for Governor-elect: Tim Sheppard.
 
See you there!
 
Hello all!
 
Here is your opportunity to sign up to help with this event.  We have several committees so if you have an idea of what you want to do, please contact the committee chair.  We will have either car pools or shuttles for people that will not be spending the night camping on site and will utilize these as well for replenishing supplies if needed.  We have limited parking in our area so this will have to be strictly enforced.
 
Don’t want to participate in the physical town of Glendo but still help?  We will  need help prepping equipment, making sure all supplies and utensils are clean, packed and ready to go, as well as purchasing food items.

The Cheyenne Kiwanis Club Foundation has been working to support construction of an accessible playground for all ages and abilities at Cheyenne' 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. To learn more about the new playground, please see http://www.cahillplayground.com . The home page has two links to videos of existing accessible playgrounds for your information. Should you desire to help the project financially, there is also a link for that purpose.
 
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.
 
 
 
Progress as of May 9, 2017. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on June 10th. Donations are still welcome.
Want to know what's on the lunch menu for the next Club meeting? Just check out the .pdf document in the "Home Page Download Files" section in the left panel of this home page. We hope to keep this information available for our membership throughout the year.

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.
