Congratulations to Kent Drake, Paul  Bellotti and Darwin Pace who were named Kiwanis Life Members at the February 14th Club meeting.
 
Life Members are chosen for fulfilling their commitment and going above and beyond the call of duty while completing their responsibilities over many years. Individuals who achieve Live Member Status are those who perpetuate the objects and objectives of Kiwanis International. Life members are chosen on a “lifetime” of service to the club and the expectation “service” will continue for many years to come if possible.
 
There are now 40 active members of our Club who have been named Life Members.

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 four 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.  And, if you can, consider a gift of $500 or more for recognition as a playground fellow. Thanks for your support.
 
The accessible play area, as it looked on April 27, 2018, being enjoyed by many kids.
