In light of recent events regarding COVID-19 commonly known as the Corona Virus, I want to address our Kiwanis members.  First and foremost, the health of our members and community is of the utmost importance.  We are watching how the virus is spreading and urge everyone to take appropriate precautions.
 
Please use common sense in your daily lives. Most people, even if they become infected by the virus, will not be in any danger. However, if a person is contagious, they could easily pass the virus to someone that is health compromised. 
 
If you feel that you are susceptible to illness or may be in a health compromised situation, I ask that you do not attend any events. 
 
If you feel ill for any reason, please do not attend any events.
 
If you are concerned about missing a meeting and it affecting your perfect attendance, please let me know and I will make sure that you still get credit for attending during this difficult time.
 
Please be aware that we may cancel or postpone events if necessary at any time. 
 
We are following the guidance of the CDC, State, Local and Federal government.
 
Please watch/listen to your email, television, newspaper, social media and radio stations for additional guidance and closures or cancellations. These closures or cancellations may happen just before events, so please stay vigilant in keeping informed.
 
In Good Health,
 
Brian Lenell
President

Updated 3/30. Friday Food Bag activities resumed on August 24th. See full schedule in Download Files section of this web page. Stay tuned for schedule changes as the social distancing guidelines dictate whether and when unpackings and fillings will occur.
 
Updated 3/30. Jim Coomes announced that he is planning interclubs with other clubs in the region. Contact him if you have any questions or would like to be considered for participation. This consists of four of our members going to a meeting of another club in our region and exchanging ideas. A meal, if part of the meeting, is paid for by our Club. This will require some time off work for those still in the work force because of travel time to and from the other meetings. Interclubs have been suspended.
 
Updated 3/30.  Lauri Osborne and Renee Brower are leading the 100th (Club) Anniversary committee. They are still asking for your ideas on what such a celebration should entail. They still could use some suggestions from the general membership. Their next meeting, scheduled for April 7th, has been cancelled. 
 
Updated 3/13. Chocolate Indulgence is being postponed until sometime after the country's health emergency has resolved itself.
 
New 2/20. This year's Jeff Teasley Agency Kiwanis Foundation Golf Tournament is scheduled for June 26th, with a shotgun start at 9 am. 
 
UPDATED 3/26. The March 26 Club meeting was a virtual meeting held via Zoom. There were 34 participants.  Just in case you missed it, Jason Duda reminded us that it was National Spinach Day, as well as "National Make Up Your Own Day" Day. President Brian noted that he will be holding a virtual Board Meeting soon -- details to be announced.
 
In this difficult time our country is going through, the Cheyenne Kiwanis Foundation felt that it is important to take some extra time in evaluating the grants received to make sure we are helping those with the greatest and most pressing needs.  At this time the Cheyenne Kiwanis Foundation is postponing granting the awards until such time as our board can re-evaluate our position.
 
We are keeping all grant applications that have been received and will announce at some point the reopening of the process.
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
 
To your good health
Denise Newell, Cheyenne Kiwanis Foundation President

Updated 3/26. The next meeting will be a virtual meeting via Zoom on Tuesday, March 31, at 7 a.m.The topic will be the "Red Sea Security."  See article above ("Update - Great Decisions") for details.
 
The Great Cheyenne Kiwanis Club has been sponsoring a Great Decisions discussion group for years. Here's more about the program and this year's topics.
Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs.  The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book, watching the DVD and meeting in a Discussion Group to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today.
Topics for 2020:

The Club's discussion series will began on Tuesday, March 3, and will continue for another 7 weeks. Meet at The Red Lion at 7:00 a.m.  Contact Tim Sheppard to reserve a place, since a limited number of briefing books have been ordered.

Club/committee members who need propane tanks for their project area asked to 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 the tanks were last topped off, 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 the Club's budget.
