Past President Patty Benskin invites all Club members and their family members to an evening of food and fun. She writes:
 
"The Annual Kiwanis Dinner and Melodrama will be held on Wednesday, July 24.  Dinner at the Warehouse will be at 5:30 and Melodrama tickets are for 7:00pm that evening.  Please note this is different from previous years.  The dinner and melodrama are on Wednesday, rather than Tuesday.
 
"Melodrama tickets will be billed to your Kiwanis account.  Below are the prices with the Little Theater discount.
 
Adults - $13.60
Seniors/Military - $11.90
Students - $10.20
Child - $8.50
 
Please send or call in your reservations by Tuesday, July 16.  Little Theater needs a firm count one week in advance.  Reservations need to be made to Patty Benskin at wbenskin@msn.com or by calling Patty at 638-1312 or 630-3545."
 
The guest of honor will be Kiwanis International Trustee Katrina Baranko, from the Albany, Georgia Kiwanis Club.
 
ALSO PLEASE NOTE: You (and your guests) may attend either or both of the dinner at the Treber Building ("warehouse") and Melodrama. Please respond with your desires, even if you do not wish to attend the Melodrama, so that enough food can be ordered for the dinner.
Debbie LaFaso has long-sleeved shirts for sale with the "official" Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast logo printed on the back. Just the thing to show your club affiliation while working at the Frontier Days pancake breakfasts. They meet the safety requirement for the long-sleeved shirt if you are to be working anywhere near a grill, and give great protection from the sun's rays if you are working elsewhere. See her at Thursday's regular meeting, give her a call at 307-221-7378 or email her at wyodeblfs@aol.com .
 
Meetings of the Satellite Club are scheduled to resume in September, once the busy Summer season is past.
 
Updated 6/6. Annual Cheyenne Frontier Days Pancake Breakfasts will be on July 22, 24 and 26. This is an "all hands on deck" project, so please help out whenever you can during this week.  Second Vice-President Sam Weinstein is the overall chairman.  Don't forget the advice given you at induction, "Kiwanis is not just something you join, it is something you DO."

From Past President Laura Munari:
 

As has been announced many times before now, we are hosting the Rocky Mountain District Kiwanis Convention.

Events to be planned include our dinner on Friday August 2 at the Kiwanis Community House, as well as Tim's Gala on Saturday August 3.

If you do not want to be involved in the planning but would be willing to help please let me know!

On Friday we will need servers, cooks, setup and cleanup.  Saturday we will need volunteers at the gala to help with fundraising efforts and serving cake!

Saturday afternoon I will need four people to man the doors at the house of delegates to check credentials as people enter.

If you want to attend (without working) any of the events of district convention you must register as an attendee.  So, if you want to support Tim at his gala you will have to register for convention. Registration is under way!  

If you have never been to a district convention I urge you to consider going.  Since it is local you don't have the travel time or hotel expense and still get to hang with people from all over the district (Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico and Wyoming) and share ideas on how we can make our awesome club even better!

Let me know if you are willing and able to help or just show up at the meeting on Thursday at Daniel Mark's!

Planning is underway for the Cheyenne Marathon, scheduled for September 15, 2019. This is a Club fundraiser that will require LOTS of help. Contact Lisa Taylor,  Lisa Maney or Lisa Trimble.  The next planning meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 11, at 1 PM, Red Lion Hotel, following the weekly Club meeting. Subsequent meetings will be held the second Thursday of each month, same time and place.  Aaron Bentley is looking for Cheyenne Marathon race sponsors. Please see Download Files section of this web page for the sponsorship form.
 
Updated 7/9.  Cheyenne Marathon needs Corner Monitors to serve from 5:30 am until 12:30 pm the day of the race. There will be 183 corners on the race course, and two monitors are required per corner. For the math-challenged among us, that's a total of 366 folks needed to monitor corners -- and that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg insofar as requirements are concerned.  Lisa Taylor will be circulating sign-up sheets as the race date approaches.
 
New 5/30. Quartermaster Marty Sears has requested that committee members who need propane tanks for their project first use partially full tanks, before they start a new one. Why? The fill charge for each tank, whether it is partially full or empty, makes no difference, is $75 per tank. The charge is a flat rate, with no proportional credit for topping off a partially full tank. It cost in the neighborhood of $825 when Marty got the tanks topped off recently, and much of that went toward topping off partially full tanks.
 
So, if you need propane, take and use a partially full tank and, if you think that may not be enough, take a full tank as a backup.
 
Your cooperation is appreciated by Marty (and the Club's budget).
The summer activity season is here. For the information of everyone who would like to loan out Kiwanis Club-owned equipment, please see the Download Files section to the left of this homepage and comply with the policy stated therein. The general ground rules and necessary loan request/maintenance fee sheet and indemnification form are included in this file.  Only requests accompanied by fully completed paperwork will be considered. This includes listing the stovetender, transportation and food you have arranged, and other considerations that must be made for the project to work.  The Quartermaster cannot do all of the ground work for you. Your cooperation is appreciated.
 
 

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.
