Here is a summary of 8/4/2022 last week's meeting:



  • Due to the continued hot weather, we were fortunate to have had our meeting inside the YMCA. Our special guest was Matt White’s son, Connor, who enjoyed lunch with us. Future Kiwanian??

  • Reminder to the club, we will be having our official dedication of the Kiwanis Children’s Reading Nook this coming Thursday, August 11th at the YMCA. Jeff Sullivan, from the Bulletin, will be joining us for some media coverage. Hope to see you there.

  • We will confirm soon, but it looks like we will be having our August 18th meeting at The Garden’s Cemetery.

  • This date is confirmed, we will be having a cookout at the Deutsches Altenheim (2220 Centre Street West Roxbury) on Thursday, August 25th. Once the weather is confirmed, we will confirm at what part of the campus we will be meeting.

  • Don’t forget to mark you calendars. Our Annual Charity Softball Game is scheduled for Tuesday September 13th at Jason Robert’s Field on West Boundary Road in West Roxbury. A $25 donation is requested. This will get you a Kiwanis T-shirt and food. We need players, volunteers, and folks to cheer us on. We are again being challenged by the Rotary Club. All proceeds will be going to Bill Hubbard and his family to celebrate Bill’s hard work over the years with the Jason Robert’s Challenger League. John Sullivan has the evenings event well organized.

  • We are scheduled to march again at this year’s Roslindale Parade on Sunday October 2nd. We need volunteers to help hand out candy to the kids at the parade. We should have two vehicles as well. We will confirm the meeting spot soon.

  • Auction Committees have been set up. The Publicity Committee is being chaired by Sean Brennan. Warren Frank, Dave Peterson and John Sullivan will help Sean. The Auction Items Committee will be chaired by Bob McNeil. The Decorating Committee is being chaired by Donna Arthur. Lauralee Davis and Peter Barten will be helping Donna. The Food Committee is being chaired by Warren Frank. Stephanie Brothers will be helping Warren. Last but not least, the Set Up Committee has no chair and we are all part of this committee. We can use everyone’s help. Contact the committee chairs if you want to get involved. More to come.

  • We started up our Card Game again last week but had no winner. The pot will keep growing.

  • The Ken Cunningham Word of the Day was “WANTON”  which of course means to disregard.

I believe that is all for now. Hope to see you on Thursday!!
