This Saturday, June 15th, 9 a.m. is the date and time. We should be finished by noon if there is plenty of help. We will be loading the Kiwanis stake truck which Marty Sears has promised to drive.

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.
