What do April showers bring? New Members, that's what! If we want to grow our club, we need to start planting those seeds now because we are having a Membership Drive on April 24th at the Red Lion at 5:30. If you know of a prospective new member or members, please invite them to this informal event to meet current members, and see what our club is about. Our goal is to get back to 300 members, so let's all get involved and help Grow our Cheyenne Kiwanis Club.
 
Thank you,
 
Pat Ashworth

Volunteers to fill the three vacancies would be expected to serve a three year term, beginning October 1, 2019.
