To date, our Membership Growth, Education and Retention committee got our club meetings off to a great start utilizing a fun quiz title Kiwanis Nuggets to test our knowledge and about Kiwanis International, EC&C District, Division 27 and our Club. It was a close call and everyone celebrated with the winning team. Members are already talking about who will be teaming up to win the next round of Kiwanis Nuggets. We have once again implemented our Buddy System we will be starting our Kiwanis Objects and You activity where each meeting a member will be asked to share current information about their buddy and another will be asked to share what an object of their choice means to them.
